The road less traveled is what makes all the difference and this is what makes Hemant and Nandita’s fall 2016 collection surreal. The Dark Enchantress is all about the fierce,bold and competitive lady of today’s age. The duo talk through the designs and it is evident that how their recent travel experience has inspired this collection.
The color palette consists of deep midnight blues,deep reds and charcoal greys which reflect the deep and dense mood of the woods while the dash of gold, copper and bronze with jewellish tones in the embroidery add a sense of royalty to it. A fair amount of layering is seen with the bold outer wear which consists of romantic silhouettes, deep V-necklines, strappy shoulders and high slits. Brushed wool, tweed and jacquard are some of the key materials used which also give a very romantic vibe to the collection. Jacquard is mainly used to enhance the layering of the garments. The wildness of enchantress is witnessed with the way the garments are visually sold.
Hemant and Nandita’s A/W 16′ fall collection gives us a very chic and bold look for the coming season. The reflective quality of all the designs echo how geography and time inspire fashion.
