Chic and edgy

Nineties might be associated grunge denim, crop tops and Doc Martens, but it also celebrated bold solid colours, metallics and high-octane glamour.

Saudi Arabian fashion brand Leem merged their modest aesthetic with some of the chicest elements of the decade to create a statement making collection that will make anyone feel powerful and youthful.


It focuses on eye-popping shapes, including maxi volumes combined with softly draped fabrics for a flattering silhouette, puffed sleeves, frills, metallics, and lacework. Kaftans and dresses have an air of luxe that form the building blocks of any modest wardrobe, however separates are equally strong, especially paperbag khaki trousers styled with an embellished top, and a tie-dye sweatshirt that is an ideal statement piece for off-duty style.


The collection is curated in soft and neutral tones, synonymous with Leem, including blush, lavender mouse, vanilla, teal, shell and white. Juxtaposing the tranquil palette, SS20 adds to the mix statement colours of yellow, coral, cobalt, fuchsia and raspberry alongside a spectrum of jewel tones with a touch of metallic.

This season cotton qualities with satin finishing, mixed yarns with spandex and flowing fabrics such as silk ensure maximum comfort and softness, alongside a light and soft quality, perfect for the warmer months.


If that wasn’t enough, there are plenty of accessories to enhance your outfit – including an array of turbans, rope belts for cinching, statement earrings, head scarf pins, hats and brooches.
