Hailing from the United Arab Emirates and living in the United Kingdom, Khalid al Qasimi strikes a balance in his juxtaposition of the two cultures, as well as his approach to masculinity vs. femininity, antiquity and modernity, and traditionalism vs. modernity.

For autumn/winter 2013, Khalid draws inspiration from films like the Third Man, Eyes Wide Shut and American Psycho as he peers into the psychotic nature of man—hence, the dark undertone of the collection.

The designer boldly mixes assorted textures and fabrics, loose and closefitting silhouettes, asymmetry, as well as pinstripe shorts and elbow high leather gloves.
