Fall-Winter '20 - DSM Exclusive Capsule
For Fall-Winter '20, we created an exclusive capsule collection for Dover Street Market as a preview to our Spring-Summer '21 “Al Majdal” collection coming up next season, debuting our year-long collaboration with a hand-weaving workshop in Gaza.
The workshop specializes in the production of Majdalawi fabric, which originated in the Palestinian village of Al-Majdal and is one of the most ancient and famous fabrics from the Middle East along with Syrian Silk and Egyptian Cotton. The colour palette for the collection was inspired by the 2019 exhibition The Sea Beneath Our Eyes, created by Palestinian-American artist and ADISH partner Jordan Nassar for the Tel Aviv Center for Contemporary Art.
In addition to our first-time use of the Majdalawi fabric, we also worked with traditional Gaza embroideries such as the connective embroidery A'qide Gazeh, and continued our ongoing collaboration with the Bedouin weaving workshop in Lakiya.
