Ohne Titel Egyptian Inspiration

Alexa Adams and Flora Gill of Ohne Titel's, pulled from an ancient culture for inspiration for their Spring 2010 collection. The designing duo used the colored palette of Ancient Egyptian wall paintings, to create their asymmetrically lined pieces that included laced neck braces and shoes.

After a trip to Egypt a couple years ago, I became obsessively curious about this ancient culture. My curiosity has made my excitement for this collection all the more palpable. The inspiration from Pharaohs, kings, and queens is subtle but impacting. Ancient Egyptians had a unique style and culture, as well as a keen fascination with ornamentation and dress code.
