Qasimi
Autumn / Winter 17

The QASIMI AW17 collection was titled 'Room 702' — a reference to John Lennon and Yoko Ono's 'Bed In' protest at the Amsterdam Hilton Hotel. Taking cues from peaceful protest, without the neccessity to build on the label's literal interpretations via wearable duvets and pillow clutches, BOUM fitted the River Rooms at Somerset House with stacked crash barriers that acted as platforms and backdrops designed by artist Nika Neelova. Guests had the freedom to meander through adjoining opulent rooms that the studio had stripped back to complete vacancy.
