FORMA, designed by Khalid Shafar, is an exploration of forms and shapes that results from the connection and interconnection of Agaals – the black woven rope band men in the Arab world wear to secure their head covers.
Agaals are stripped out of their original fashionable function to serve as a pure building material for this collection. It is a further study of how a group of similar 2D elements can create a three-dimensional form as they connect and interconnect. Fluidity and continuity throughout the forms is key to maintaining the collection overall sharp and firm appearance.
FORMA is a tribute to the Arabic and Venetian cultures and traditions.
