AHLEM proudly announces the release of its FW22 collection, with eight distinctive styles reflecting the brand’s characteristic blend of understatement, originality and elegance.
The FW22 collection conjures a world from one moment: Paris, 1979, the final year of cinematic glamor before the future arrives. The city’s bohemian enclaves are populated by a cast of independent spirits: artists and academics, playwrights and critics, activists and musicians. Within this liberal milieu our characters emerge, each articulating a unique facet specific to its time and place. The FW22 collection presents the eyewear these protagonists would wear as they navigate Paris’ terraces and cafés with vigor, agency and style.
In Paris 1979, a sensibility of dandyism and cinematographic chic reigns: perfectly tailored suits, tan sedans with brown leather interior, Cuban heels on cobblestones. This is a culture at its fleeting and sublime peak, blissfully ignorant of the aesthetic excesses and technological disruptions soon to come. Each of the eight acetate and metal styles depicts a riveting, multi-dimensional individual: the ingénue, the bon vivant, the intellectual, the revolutionary, the beatnik, the feminist, the poet. As with all AHLEM eyewear, this collection is defined by pure concepts, sculptural shapes and exquisite detailing.
