With the backdrop of a grim, night forest began Siddartha Tytler’s Autumn/Winter 17’s showcase for the Amazon India Fashion Week and one knew that the mood for the season’s collection is going to be dark and mysterious. It was indeed that and much more.
Inspired by after-life, the monochromatic collection was restricted to a colour palette of black and grey. The showcase that consisted of statement wardrobe pieces for both the sexes, had a very gothic feel to it. There was a fascinating blend of textures seen in every look – crystals, patchwork, appliqué work and metal embellishments were all used together.
The collection saw a medley of dressy and elegant numbers – a glitzy cocktail dress with tulle details, a cutwork velvety evening gown with an asymmetrical hemline, an evening gown with a high slit, lace yoke and a trailing cape, a velvet blazer with balloon organza sleeves and floral threadwork detailing, and beyond.
For the men, the collection had pieces like a sharp and fitted grey shirt with black floral patchwork detailing, a sheer shirt lacy shirt, a grey bomber jacket with silver metal hardware detailing on the sleeves.
There was a great deal of variety in the use of fabrics as well, that ranged from velvet, georgettes, organza, mesh, tulle to suiting fabrics.
The show also had four models walk the ramp with metal masks that were curated in collaboration with the accessories designer Diego Montoya for the season’s collection.
