London-based Sudanese designer Omer Asim’s new Autumn Winter 2014/2015 collection shows off his architectural training at Bartlett and the time spent at Central Saint Martins studying creative pattern cutting.

The collection modeled by Senegalese model Kinee Diouf, features futuristic cuts and textures mixed with primitive elements.

In 2011, Omer Asim launched his eponymous label, which has become known for its questioning of aesthetics through modern silhouettes, layered shapes, architectural tailoring penchant for multi-dimensional textures combined with primeval sartorial elements to create a sense of regressive future.

We love his Autumn/Winter 2014/15 collection, where laddered cotton (hand-woven in a loom in the Ethiopian highlands that was first used over two thousand years ago) is reworked in elegant combinations with knitted linen and silk with various hand treatments and lacquered finishes across a colour palette of black, cream and copper.
