'Hagia Sofia', white satin coat, entirely hand embroidered with antique blown glass beads, Dice Kayek, 2009. Photo: Dice Kayek/Courtesy of Dice Kayek (via Albert & Victoria Museum).
Dice Kayek is one of Turkey’s most well known fashion labels and was established in Paris in 1992 by sisters Ece and Ayse Ege. The sisters were raised in Bursa, Turkey and now live and work between Istanbul and Paris.
After the successful launch of their first collection, displaying their unique take on the conventional white shirt, Dice Kayek became a well known name. The brand reflects its Turkish origins, bridging east and west, the traditional and the modern, as well as the luxurious and the sober.
Caftan, a lamé hand-woven brocard, plays homage to Ottoman sartorial style as a symbol of status, power and honour. Dome is a light-weight cotton organdi dress entirely folded by hand which brings to mind the layers of domes of the Blue Mosque, one of the most significant buildings of Istanbul’s Islamic heritage. Hagia Sofia is inspired by the interior of the Hagia Sofia; a white satin coat, its complex embroidery stitched entirely by hand with antique blown glass beads.
