Architecturally and geometrically inspired, Charles Youssef’s F/W 15 presentation echoed the modern vibe of his previous collections; but this time around, he upped the pretty factor. The cool elegance evoked by the wide-legged trousers, loosely tiered skirts and dresses, and one sublime sheer maxi was offset with the recurring detail of sharply cut triangle trimming and a monochromatic palette.
Youssef remained true to his origami roots with a smattering of statement pieces such as a voluminous top with intricately folded sleeves which, though bold, we feel we need in our closets, stat. The collection overall is arguably his most wearable yet. Topped off with burgundy pouts and slept-in hair, could one venture to claim that in his F/W 15 collection, Youssef has redefined the look of the modern femme fatale? We think yes.
