Symbiose by Hinda A. Presents Winter '12 Collection

Silvia Di Iorio
One of Montreal’s very own fashion designers, Hinda A., revealed her Winter 2012 collection at Boutique Symbiose in the Old Port this week. The very intimate cocktail evening proved to be worthwhile, as everything about this collection lived up to fashion's highest standards.

For her current winter collection, Hinda has produced no more than 5-9 pieces per style. This makes each design that much more unique. Symbiose has a very classic style with a sophisticated flair. Some really great items can be found especially for professional women taking the workforce by storm.

What’s great about this new collection is that the timeless look and classic cuts, meshed together with good quality fabrics and superb feasibility, prolong the lifetime of these clothes. They can be worn season after season, mixed and matched with other classic items or more trendy pieces. So those who were fortunate enough to view this collection during MFW23 would really gain a new perspective and appreciation for the selected fabrics and quality.

The silk velours blazers and classic wool coats are my personal favorite pieces. Hinda has made great use of velours in rich maroon and navy blue colors, also in versatile dresses that can be worn with a short or long hemline. The velours fabric is so divine to the touch, it doesn’t need any embellishments to heighten its appeal, or rather, its quality. She has also played with the notion of pairing together crisp clean cuts and draped pieces. And the floral patterns in dark, rich colors work really well with the whole collection without looking overly feminine.

When it comes to fashion, my mother always told me that quality is better than quantity. In a sense, it's worth more having classic, staple pieces in your closet so that you can build a long-lasting quality wardrobe. This is what the winter 2012 Symbiose collection reflects. So glad to see a very talented local designer holding true to this notion as well. Looking forward to more quality collections from Symbiose in seasons to come.
