For the brand’s Spring Summer 2023 Collection, Founder & Designer, Lilian Afshar, took inspiration not only from her home-country of Iran with the mirror engravings from the mirror work at Golestan Palace in Tehran, as well as from the baby pinks worn by the dancers in Edgar Degas’ ‘Ballet Scene’; through to the pops of transparent colour, inspired from her visit to the Venetian Islands of Murano; known for its famed Murano Glass.
L'AFSHAR continues to produce in the UAE at their Al Quoz factory in Dubai. Sustainability is an important pillar for the brand; L’AFSHAR creates innovative design concepts that ensures, there is not surplus waste, rather additional design. This results in a maximum output with minimal waste and excess, ensuring that the consciously designed products make a minimal impact on the environment.
The L’AFSHAR Spring Summer 2023 Collection continues to evolve and elevate from the signature L’AFSHAR box clutch; bringing in new shapes and materials such as the “Dalida,” a leather clutch bag with a croc effect with gold hardware and a magnetic closure and “Edna” a leather bag with a top handle and detachable chain straps.
About the Brand
Established in 2013, L’AFSHAR debuted at Paris Fashion Week in 2015, and as the recognition of the brand has grown, so has the range. L'AFSHAR effortlessly unites the worlds of art, architecture and accessories with its contemporary handcrafted designs, made in Dubai. Vintage glassware, architecture, and contemporary design influence the creations that come out of the L’AFSHAR brand’s timeless collections. Luxurious with an industrial twist, the brand aesthetic is precise and considered defined by modern silhouettes and compact sizes.
In 2020, L’AFSHAR launched a line of furniture and objets d’art, called L’AFSHAR STUDIO. The environments the brand creates are modes of expression, spaces invoking mood and feeling. Each L’AFSHAR piece is made with an eye to bold, sculptural lines, created to bring an effortless, enduring modernity to any atmosphere.
