For RAD, Rad Hourani turned out a seamless collection of mostly men’s and women’s jackets in wool, satin and leather, as well as trenches and hoodies worn with nondescript slim pants or tights. Despite the strict focus, the collection lacked nothing.
Geometric blocks of black, rich olive green and shimmery gray meshed well with the minimalist lines of straight hems, mock collars and square shoulders. Many looks stood out for their layers of material at the neck—jackets over jackets or hoods within hoods. Androgynous highlights, Hourani’s specialty, include a single leather skirt for him and a tuxedo tail for her.
Nearly every look belted sharply, often with a harness, which have been a street trend for years, though not prevalent on runways. His were at once sophisticated, sporty and high-style. The rest of the accessories—briefcases, backpacks and waistlets—were boxy and elegant.
