Mixing these vibrant hues with his signature mirror work, the designer recreates a Pantone-approved palette sprinkled with chevron and floral prints.
LOCAL AT HEART
Trends: Indian crafts and woven textiles
“She”, Studio Virtues’s latest collection spells out admiration for the ancient handloom technique of Mashru from Patan. Entailing robes, jackets, anarkalis, skirts, jumpsuits and comfort trousers, the ensembles are detailed with the Kutchi mirror work and include prints that are inspired from Ravi Verma’s treasured paintings.
Abhishek Gupta’s collection this year features sherwanis and kurtas lined with magnificent brocades detailed with traditional handloom techniques, fine appliqué and thread embroidery.
This year trend finds itself a dominant spot on Ekaya Banaras’ new collection. Titled, Opening Night, the collection modernises heritage artistry with stripes and abstract line drawings and shot in a vintage theatre. The star of this show is a mathematically precise ‘cut-work or Fekua’ technique where the design is replicated across the textile and extra threads cut off. Watch out the mixing of thick and thin stripes on Banarsi silk lehengas, blouses and saris.
