For AW18, rising menswear designer Paria Farzaneh draws on an analysis of his Iranian heritage to create a rich, lavishly-textured tailoring and sportswear collection. According to the designer, Farzaneh's debut line draws inspiration from the memory, identity, and professions of the Iranian people, in fusion with the buzzing city life and sleek tailoring of his current home city of London.

This results in an array of artisan hand-printed fabrics from Iran paired with traditional British shirting and tailoring materials for an inspired fusion of east and west. The opulent patterning and heavy fabrics are complemented by a neutral palette of beige, cream, navy, and gray tones for refined ensemble steeped in tradition.
