Bringing the essence of elegance to the cocktail hour, Satya Paul explores a new vocabulary of garment innovations for the AW’13 Festive collection. Inspired by the various shades of the sky at sundown, the collection presents sensuous drapes inombre and partial embellishments, exuding femininity and grace. Understated yet striking, the look is set to leave a lasting impression.
Classic Indian silhouettes are reconstructed in a sleek manner, to bring in novelty, ease and poise. The lehenga is draped like a Saree, the Saree like a gown and so on. The pre-stitched kaftan Saree can be worn as an off-shoulder dress, or with a blouse, a sparkling jacket is added to the lehenga Saree keeping in mind the winter evenings, pre-pleated pallus are draped around the armhole.
Sparing highlights of gota pati, crystal and sequins are used to create the effect of the sun rays.
Engineered to drape naturally over the woman’s silhouette, sensuous sheers like silk georgettes and tulle have been used in combination with satins.
All the colors of the sunset, from the expected to the unexpected. The gradient color story is completed with softer hues of nude, mustard and golden and deep shades of plum, wine red, pink and indigo.
