Yousef Akbar Resort 18 Review

Yousef Akbar Resort ’18 Review

By May 18, 2017 Style

Words by Matt Huxley

It’s official. Sequins are back. Back in a big way.

The Yousef Akbar woman takes reference from the hedonistic Studio 54, 70s glitter punk and 80s prom queens.

There were moments of brilliance. A skin tight pair of dusty pink sequinned pants, a matching turtleneck layered with an emerald green slip. An all in one khaki look including face covering (very Grace Jones) with Ostrich tufts was a pleasant avant-garde interlude. A studded biker jacket with a back slit and gold riveting is a phenomenal buyer piece – it’ll fly off the shelves.

The use of small wooden planks to hold dress slits together and as shoulder detailing was phenomenal. It added the perfect craftsman touch to the outfits, a bit of roman centurion, which is always great.

Not every look hit the mark for me personally, but overall the show was a success.
