Exploring the scope for luxe knitwear in a country that has a pronounced winter in several parts, the collection draws heavily from outerwear staples. Sweaters, cloaks, coats and trenches in custom-made flat knits and ribs create abstract and amorphous shapes. These are balanced by sharply tailored separates in premium suitings, rich silks and sheer organzas. The predominant palette of steel, slate and charcoal is contrasted by a sharp tangerine. A trompe l’oeil print adds texture to the range. A modern, urban derivation of the traditional baadla-taar embellishment technique highlights the pieces. This is high-pret with a dramatic flair.
