Rad Hourani’s unisex ultra-modern design marks a New Age for Haute Couture
“I STARTED IMAGINING CLOTHES THE SAME WAY I STARTED CREATING IMAGES: WITH A SENSE OF CURIOSITY AND INNOCENCE DRIVEN BY MY NO-BACKGROUND BACKGROUND. NO SCHOOL. NO TEACHERS. NO TELLY. NO BOUNDARIES. NO FORMATTING. I LIKE THE IDEA OF A WORLD THAT WE COULD LIVE AND SHAPE BY OURSELVES, ONLY BY OBSERVING. EACH OUR OWN. MY CLOTHES HAVE ERUPTED FROM THIS WORLD OF MINE. THEY ARE ASEXUAL, ASEASONAL, THEY COME FROM NO PLACE, NO TIME, NO TRADITION, YET THEY COULD BE HOME ANYWHERE, ANYTIME. THEY EXUDE A SENSE OF DISCREET CHIC, THE ESSENCE OF TIMELESS STYLE, DRAWN ON A MONOCHROMATIC AND GRAPHICAL CANVAS. PALETTE OF BLACKS AND SHADES OF TIMELESS COLORS. SOPHISTICATED UNISEX MODERN CLASSICS FOR ANTI-CONFORMIST INDIVIDUALS.” – Rad Hourani
Rad Hourani reinvents fashion by transcending its conventions, creating a unisex luxury that is changing women’s and men’s wardrobes since he launched his namesake label in 2007 in Paris. Like all truly great visionnaires, Hourani not only depicts fashion, he defines it, and gives it cultural resonance. Gender-agnosticism is the driving conceptual direction in Rad Hourani’s work, and growing up and living in such different parts of the world has certainly contributed to Hourani’s rather holistic design approach: self-tought and driven by a passion for modernity, Hourani creates a luxurious yet affordable lifestyle that has rid itself of any conventional restrictions : no gender, no season, no rules, epitomising the values of freedom and unisex elegance.
