Shivan and Narresh, the designer duo responsible for making swimwear high fashion, bring out their fall winter’17 collection titled “The Egon Series” at Amazon India Fashion Week 2017.
The show is set amidst Egon Schiele’s works and features animation of his celebrated works featuring landscapes, riversides to contorted human gures – the mood sets in with Art. As the mood shifts to the opulence of Skein Work, the setting moves to a lakeside Viennese celebration with a burst of synchronized reworks that spell grandeur & mystique.
The collection carries various details in its different sections – from hand- cut details like the “Schiele edges” on the swimsuits reminiscent of his jagged line work, to the lustrous, gleaming fabrics, innovated exclusively for the collection. To replicate his line work & its variation, forms of drapery, across the body have been experimented with to nally close in on the most indulgent forms to highlight the decorous contours of the body.
Re-introduced as the signature surface technique by the brand, “skein work” celebrates modern Indian opulence & grandeur with it’s exquisite, hand crafted intricacies. Setting the tone for new-age couture, this season witnesses brush metal palettes
This collection is infused with a variety of elements other than skein work, like ivory pearls and Swarovski crystals, to dazzle the collection with festivity & grandeur.
While Skein Work adds a new look to the existing silhouttes within the brand, this season witnesses the introduction of a new silhouette for the new-age bride – the “Flute Lehnga”. Structured, formal and glamorous , the silhouette follows the lines of an exxagerated Bordeaux goblet and involves artful pattern-making and leaving edges to billow with.
