As many people end up choosing their new-year resolutions to revolve around being more active, a homegrown brand has decided to connect the upcoming year with centuries that have already gone by. Egypt’s brand new athleisure luxury brand, Ohanna, is giving us just that. Athleisure luxury brand, Ohhana is inspired by ancient Egyptian history and its mighty human civilisation. Created in the heart of Alexandria, the brand attempts to woo powerful women, those who strive to revive the glory of the ancient kingdom. Through contemporary designs, the brand aims to revitalise the iconic pharaonic aesthetic while redefining athleisure fashion.
The debut collection consists of limited-edition pieces that brilliantly balance comfort with luxury. Inspired by how ancient Egyptians used to give meticulous attention to details, the linings are made from silk and satin, embodying ancient Egyptian designs found in temple wall art.
From jogger sets to dresses, the edgy pieces are fit for eventful mornings as well as unforgettable nights. The Fall/Winter 2019 collection gives women a number of malleable and versatile designs which can be styled up or down depending on the occasion.
Rebirth of the Nile features a variety of pieces that can be mixed, matched, and deconstructed into several different looks. As true fashion investments, each piece offers a wide range of styling options.
The ‘Kissa’ jogger set, meaning ‘Twins’ in ancient Egyptian, is a set of edgy joggers with a matching shirt. Both items can be altered due to their adjustable strings. The shirt can accommodate casual morning dress-codes and it can also be turned into a cropped jacket for nights around the capital.
‘Tuya’, which can be translated into sunbeam, has panelling neon details similar to sunrays. It can be zipped and worn as a dress for a day look or modified into a night look by unzipping the piece and turning it into a crop top with a matching skirt. It also gives another option by folding the shoulders of the shirt to display the patterns.
