Influenced by this rugged grand desert landscape Clon8’s Spring/Summer 2015 collection was much inspired by the nomadic aspects of the Phoenician civilization.
The ‘Alasho’ Collection brings in the distinct craftsmanship that is present in the different tribes of the region.
The harshness of the climate and the smoothness of the sand dune, are represented through the selection of textile.
Creating paralysed contexts, of soft against hard, black against white, draped against structured, somehow translating the beauty and serenity as well as dangerous hoarse environment into a balanced unity.
Alasho encompasses a certain kind of nostalgia, a longing for this mystical voyage.
