Styling inspo #1: Abaya 7J/7 in baby blue


„This fabric is used for pants!“ My tailor insisted telling me that, but I was convinced that this was the right one! The story behind this abaya reminds me of Levi Strauss who took a sailing cloth (=canvas) to create pants that were robust enough for the daily hard work of gold diggers. I was inspired by this unconventional approach, because I wanted to create a key piece that is timeless in design but also durable in terms of quality. I found these characteristics in „gabardine“ fabric:

  • it is smooth and comfy
  • it is easy to handle (no iron needed!)
  • it is robust

Furthermore, I managed to get Oeko Tex 100 certified one that comes in every colour! Similar to the classic Levi’s jeans you have endless opportunities to style for every day („7J/7“ means „everyday of the week“ in French;)), here is one:



  1. Jeans jacket: Levi’s (Original Trucker Jacket)
  2. Bag: Zara (Join Life Collection)
  3. Abaya: Zamzam Zalila (Abaya 7J/7)
  4. Silk Scarf: Burberry Prorsum (London Map)
  5. Trainers: Puma (Basket Heart Women)
