Abaya Collection – Purificacion Garcia collaborates with designer Nora Al Shaikh
Spanish Fashion house Purificacion Garcia collaborates with designer Nora Al Shaikh for a unique Abaya collection inspired by some of the brand’s iconic bags.
Purificacion Garcia is proud to announce an exclusive regional collaboration with Saudi designer Nora Al Shaikh to create a curated Abaya collection for the Middle East. The collaboration comes as an extension of the brands’ continued effort to support and nurture regional creative talents across various disciplines. Nora Al Sheikh joins the brands growing community of artists with this collaboration, having been handpicked for her exquisite designs which fuse Saudi heritage with a global perspective. The collection includes unique designs that were inspired by three different bags (The Mi Primera Cita bag, the Homenaje Acolchado bag, and the 360 bag).
The elegance of the pieces is amplified by proposing a stunning selection of creative designs, exquisite and free-flowing fabrics, minimal shapes, unfolding unique garments including embroidery or sequins details which offer easy-to-wear glamour.
The 360º bag inspired Abaya design:
Based on a classic shopping format, the brand gave the 360 bag a twist and created a new avant-garde, minimal design based on the concepts of the brand, Purificacion Garcia’s DNA. PG with a twist!
With a geometric and organic design, this new model displays minimalist purity while remaining innovative, versatile, and playful.
The pattern stands out due to the difficulty of joining 3 pieces that revolve around the bag and are entangled with each other. This played an important role in Nora’s inspiration to create the Satin mate Abaya where she incorporated the technique onto the garment by adding two different colors to the designs; Toffee and black.
The Homenaje Acolchado inspired Abaya design:
Made by Puriricacion Garcia’s iconic Napa leather, the designer got inspired by a black crystal-embellished Homenaje Acolchado clutch. Inspired by the elegance and sophistication of the bag, the Abaya design features masterfully embroidered tulle detailing on the sleeves in the same color as the bag. The fabric used is Satin mate which is light and soft making the outfit perfect for any occasion.
The Mi Primera Cita inspired Abaya design:
The Mi Primera Cita bag is considered a classic at Purificacion Garcia. The brand introduces an updated design that is more structured and made in Quinoa leather. The bag also features the iconic Cube on the flap in addition to a chain and leather strap which can be adjusted to your preferred length.
The exterior design of the bag includes a herringbone pattern which inspired Nora to create the Abaya design. We can find similar lines in sequins on one side of the outfit which starts from the shoulder and goes down below the waistline.
