ON AIR: Sister – Haux

This week we’ve two special appointments with our COOL HUNTING column. Did you read yesterday’s post?

The special guest of this post is Khalayat.

The mind behind this brand is KHALED ALYAQOUT, a well established Kuwaiti interior designer, a real pioneer and advocate of minimalism and eclecticism. Alongside his work, Khaled had been caught by the fashion world. Keeping in mind his Arabian heritage, he decided to reinvent the traditional “dishdasha”. He created what I like to call the conceptual tunic, a very sophisticated new version of that old dishdasha. Khalayat is inspired by the first name of the designer but it means “cells” in Arabic. They say:
 SINCE CELLS ARE THE BUILDING BLOCKS OF ALL NATURAL FIBERS, THIS GIVES THE NAME GREATER DEPTH AND RELEVANCE.

But what is a dishdasha? It’s a traditional long garment worn by men in the Arabic Gulf, for formal occasions as well as everyday. Khalayat reinvented this classic wardrobe staple by transforming it into a contemporary and unisex dress that can be worn in any part of the globe. Khaled used great quality linen, a material never used for the traditional dishdasha. Loose drape, seamless silhouette, mother of pearls button and kimono sleeves are the marks of these handcrafted garments. Four designs and four different colors: black. grey, ivory and white.
