UNTY X OPENISM
A Collaboration between a Cairo based brand and an LA based brand, built through a story of chance encounters bringing two cities together to release this collection.
This design was inspired by La Grande Odalisque (which means: Harem Women), an oil painting by Jean Auguste Dominique Ingres, dated 1814. This painting represented the artist’s break from Neoclassicism to Exotic Romanticism, as well as the beauty of women of the Orient. We depicted her lying outdoors, in a garden (plants were often used in European paintings as metaphors for virtue and vice).
Made & Produced in Egypt with Egyptian Cotton
