After a meeting with Salim Edde, collector and owner of MIM mineral museum in Beirut, Tony Ward had a revelation. The result of that is a gem of a collection that is centered around nature’s precious treasures. From the colors — ranging from the vivid azurite blues to iridescent ambers — to the embellishments that take on various crystalline forms, Tony Ward Fall 2015 couture collection is a mesmerizing tribute to the beauty of minerals in nature.
“In this collection minerals are omnipresent with their tube and prism shapes as well as the colors used by Tony Ward: iridescent, amber, topaz, aquamarine, sapphire and graphite. Dresses adorn themselves with rock-like structures, shimmering illusion of crystalline reflections and pleats that mimic flowing lava.
Tony Ward transports us with this Autumn/Winter 15/16 collection into the centre of the Earth, where ultra-meticulous work was necessary to recreate the crystalline shapes that take millennia to form, shedding the light on all the poetry and sweetness nature offers us.”
