"I love the idea of a woman dressing a man," proclaims Paria Farzaneh. Holding a diploma in men's fashion from London's Ravensbourne University, the creator founded her eponymous label in 2017. The granddaughter of an Iranian tailor, Farzaneh was raised in England and regularly returns to her country of origin. It's within this cultural blend that the designer finds inspiration for her men's ready-to-wear collections, merging Iranian references and a touch of British subversion. Paria Farzaneh is intent on changing the way the West interprets Middle Eastern aesthetics, and the catwalk is one such arena for the cause. And as for the clothes, the results are easy to fall in love with — traditional Kashmir motifs, comfy oversize cuts, and fine materials selected with great care. An admirer of Rei Kawakubo and a fan of the grime scene, the creative dreams up 90's streetwear-tinged ensembles elevated with gorgeous embroidery and colorful prints. The industry didn't take long to twig to the rising star in its midst: Paria Farzaneh was selected by the British Fashion Council's NEW GEN program as "One to Watch" in 2018, the same year that Frank Ocean would rock one of her t-shirts at London's Lovebox festival.
For her Spring-Summer 2021 collection, Farzaneh transported the London Fashion Week audience to the countryside in Chilterns, a hilly region northwest of the capital. With the winds at their back, the models walked in groups, flooding the meadows and confronting the elements. On the docket were multi-pocketed jackets in camouflage print, generous hoods seemingly protecting models from the outer world. The iconic Arthur jacket, with its masterful stitching and quilted sections lending a bulk at the shoulders in a way reminiscent of a suit of armor. Once again, Paria Farzaneh excels at the art of mixing fantasy and apocalypse, to stunning results.> View more
