Rad Hourani

Like minimalists Rick Owens and Helmut Lang before him, Rad Hourani doesn’t ever deviate far from his aesthetic. His goal is to improve upon the angular, androgynous looks he began showing three years ago. Nor does he think much about differences in gender, or even season. But even for Hourani, spring was (sorta) in the air, which meant well-placed patches of white—on tees, shorts and jackets—amid the monochromatic palette. Silver, too, appeared in slashed leather leggings, slim-leg pants and tunics, while silver fringe adorned vests and tees. Zippers snaked sexily around knees and thighs, and piped the lapels of most jackets. It was a little Antwerp meets Vegas—and it worked beautifully.

For accessories, Hourani showed black, stacked-heel unisex boots—all the better to accentuate the long ‘n’ lean silhouette. And with aggressively large backpacks currently the rage, we have great expectations for his faux version. Okay, so the cape-like hybrid doesn’t have utility in its favor, but it’s still pretty damn awesome.
