Spring/Summer '18

You may baulk at the very word, but this summer's style has definite nuances of romance intermingled with boho – albeit in a very diluted form. The Shriya Som woman’s de jure is her free spirited and aristocratically bohemian vibe. The collection pieces symbolize the season of love with flirty ruffles, gathers,tiers and tonal florals in diaphanous sheer tulles and breezy silks layered in cascading, asymmetric forms. The new ‘haute bohème’ is a perfect reflection of the new age femme-preneur-a brazenly independent girl whose energy and grace is framed in this seasons romantic silhouettes derived from the late 60’s.

The colors like ivory, parchment, pale onion pink, muted grey, pale lilac along with the addition of a pale primrose yellow to add a dash of sunshine to the palette. Staying true to its aesthetics the summer of love florals this season are rendered in the revival of the mountmellick embroidery technique originated in Ireland that uses predominantly knotted and padded stitches to create beautifully textured tonal form interspersed with reflective mirrors to marry the influences of the east with the west. The output is a romantically understated gathering of clothes made with pure love, passion, grace, elegance and intricacy.
