While designer labels go the maximalist route, Maryam Nassir Zadeh put her own spin on it. At first glance, one wouldn’t suspect that there is a sort of eclecticism in her Fall 2019 show, but as it progressed, and the colors became more vivid, silhouettes became more varied, and textiles became more diverse, it was clear what the designer’s message was this season. With a flurry of different refences—from Annie Hall to Harlequin and working women to safari dressing—Zadeh put forth a wardrobe that was intentionally unintentional. These are looks, comprised of high-quality pieces made with some of the finest fabrications (Zadeh confessed that she’s more into textile than anything else), are those that women would often suddenly find themselves in and simply not care about. It’s a look into a very busy contemporary lifestyle, one that has no time to curate one’s look to evoke prim perfection. It’s rare to pair a tuxedo-like jacket with a ruffled midi-skirt, nor is it normal to see a hot pink cropped top with a tangerine pleated skirt. Yet they’re unique and quirky looks that break all the rules but still look good! Or maybe, it only takes a creative eye like Maryam Nassir Zadeh’s to make it all look good!
