Shyamal & Bhumika’s latest collection seeks inspiration from the vibrancy of spring as it heralds a festive summer! HOT takes a look at the romantic designs!
Shyamal & Bhumika brought in their Spring Summer 2017 collection with a cheery mood. Aptly titled, Fragrant Winds: the scents of spring, the inspirations of the collection can be found in scents of blooms, blossoming flowers, roses, cherry blossoms, fantasy florals, grasslands splashed with colour and patterns of whistling birds.
Summer festive wear is a different ball-game altogether. The modern Indian occasion wear needs to conform to a global aesthetic and still retain its authentic roots. The designers have got this mélange quite right! A fresh take on a fantastical wilderness the collection ties their signature romantic feel with Indian silhouettes.
Here is what HOT loves about the collection:
The designers have opted for a trendy soft summery feel with the grace of silhouettes enhanced using cascading tulle, tafettas and satin floor sweeping gowns, embellished raw silk lehengas, capes and bra top bodices.
Jackets worn over gowns, sherwani inspired crop jackets, the signature draped flares, voluminous bias skirts, crisp deep necks, open shouldered bodices, peplum blouses, box pleated skirts and India inspired draped cowls complete the collection.
There is a mix of day, evening and transitional looks in the collection.
Colours of the season are all in here! Eggshell blue, pale blush, bisque, deep purple, beaujolais raspberry, swan white, aurora red, cobble stone grey, dark green, swamp mint, canyon clay green, old rose, patriot blue, deep wine, champagne beige, prairie sand colour, deep sea green are some of the dominant colours of the collection.
The intricate delicate feel about Shyamal & Bhumikas’ spring collections is expressed through the surface ornamentation and craft the designers have used. Embroidered glass beads and shimmery sequins over the elaborate outfits, each one with a unique placement and treatment. Crystals, tiny pearls and watery sequins bunched up to add a magical glitter. Hand embroidered artisanal zardozi, marodi and peeta done using unconventional material to create a surreal feel.
Great garments always demand great accessories! Floral hair bands, chunky ear accessories, light kohl eyes, fresh cheeks and rose bud lips complete the look for the collection.
Shyamal & Bhumika’s designs recall the global muse with Indian roots that limitlessly inspires these gorgeous pieces of fashion and phenomenal craft!
