Rad Hourani presented his first collection for Spring 2008, and was hailed by Style.com as a "designer to watch". Although Rad has no formal training, he has years of experience styling and paying close attention to detail. His highly developed personal style is his main inspiration. He translates this to create androgynous, modern silhouettes for men and women. From season to season, signature pieces are revisited, reworked: the super skinny pant, the sleeveless jacket, the oversized tshirt, and a wide range of leather pieces. With his clear objectives of unisex, seasonless, futuristic clothing, Rad has created a cult following that only grows season-to-season. After starting off with a strong support base in Canada at Holt Renfrew and Montreal's Reborn, the brand now has points of sale in New York, London and Hong Kong to name a few. Fearlessly moving forward with his vision, shoes, handbags, and jewelry have also been developed.
