Chakra’s Spring/Summer collection featured a mix of neutrals, natural tones and coral hues.  

The Beirut-born couturier used pearls on most of his creations to accessorize the bust area, the trains of dresses and the mesh headpieces that the models wore as they walked down the runway. Some of the catwalk stars also wore beaded bracelets, necklaces and cross-body chains.  

Ethereal chiffon, tailored crepe, luminescent maille are some of the luxurious materials that make up the offering. There were asymmetric designs, ruffles, feathers, sequins, embroidery, fish scale-like patterns and more.
