It's my first exposure to Thamanyah and Dubai-born designer Ahmed Abdelrahman and I will have to say I am loving what I see. The spring/summer 13 menswear lookbook from Thamanyah (which is Arabic for the number 8) is a visually very strong collection of reworked Arabic dressing - showing looks featuring the kandoras (arabic traditional robe) mixed with more modern pieces such as tailored pants and fine shirting. Very graphic
A protege of Rick Owens, I see the slightly androgynous and draping influences. I can't wait to see whatever comes from Thamanyah in the future.
