THE ABAN 16/17 – AW COLLECTION
Fariba Soltani returns for AW with her boundary pushing aesthetic – bold lines are this season’s most
Complimenting hues of muted colours have been linked together in an abstract pattern designed by Soltani – a reflection of the designer’s background in architecture. Every piece has been crafted in Italy from pure virgin wool, a testament to the designer’s commitment to unparalleled luxury and unprecedented quality. The Aban Collection has been woven by a Jacquard loom to realise a variegated design which is finished with a gentle fringed trim. Jacquard woven fabrics are versatile in design, the scarves are double sided fabric with the colours reversing on either side. Each scarf is soft to the touch and light to handle, its fine virgin wool guarantees warmth and resilience for the wearer. Equally aesthetic as it is utilitarian, Soltani’s AW collection has interlocked versatility with quality.
The collection name, The Aban, is the name of the second month of autumn in Iran, and each individual scarf is named after mountains of Iran, and Fariba’s roots goes back to Mountain of Dena.
We like to thank our great Photographer, Paul Winstone and fantastic models, Kate Byrne and Alexandra Nuttall for their great contribution.
