Beirut-based brand Vanina delivers a bright and silky collection adorned in pearls for SS18.
Created by Joanne Hayek and Tatiana Fayad, next season is all about the languid silhouettes, chunky embellishments and bold colours of yellows and pinks.
What makes this label particularly interesting? It’s a creation of two close friends who are determined to represent their roots, source regional material and put their home on the map of fashion. And it seems to be working with their designs now being stocked internationally including Moda Operandi.
The duo launched their brand in 2007 when they were still at university with a focus on jewellery and reusing discarded or low-value material to create a higher-quality product. What started out as a hobby quickly evolved into a business and becoming a lifestyle label with accessories, jewellery and apparel which they source and produced in Lebanon.
Embodying the light and playful glamour, the brand presents statement pieces for any occasion.
