Munkee.see.Munkee.doo’s Autumn/Winter 2017 collection presented at the Amazon India Fashion Week goes to prove that minimalism doesn’t necessarily have to be boring.
Inspired by women in their mid-thirties with a strong sense of individuality and style, the collection is curated with a view to simplifying their lives by keeping the garments functional and practical.
Polo neck sweaters were layered with dresses, scarves, and co-ord sets. Gaucho pants were teamed with a relax top and a wool shawl. A kimono-style top with a high, buttoned up neck and leaf embroidery was teamed with a matching midi skirt. The silhouettes were structured, powerful and at times, even androgynous. There was an extensive use of embellished wool fabrics.
The hues of black, white, beige, rust and steel blue were dominant. The garments saw abstract floral and leaf embroidery that matched the fruit, flower and grocery baskets that the models walked with – to probably depict that the line has ideal everyday wear pieces for the modern, mature woman who was the muse for the collection.
The eight-year-old label is known for its clean aesthetic and its love for the classics. According to the designer duo, Teresa Laisom and Utsav Pradhan, this season’s collection is also curated with a retrospective approach – its about “moving forward by looking back.”
