This season the Suneet Varma couture collection takes inspiration from the joyful and jubilant music of the 70’s.
Says Suneet “Music nourishes our soul and transports us to a happy place- with wonderful memories- The melodies and the mood from the 70’s have always been my happy place. The styling, silhouettes and colors of the collection are inspired from the times and I have worked on the collection giving it a contemporary twist”
It’s been an interesting departure for Suneet and this season he works with a new color palette and fabrics. Deep maroons and purples in two toned silks, ombre dyed organza in shades of yellow , gold and copper diaphanous lace is lined with a vibrant orange and fuchsia pink reminiscent of the times.
The white on white dori and aari embroidered collection is layered with long tunics with asymmetrical hemlines and worn with draped dhoti trousers and flared sharara pants, the sheer sarees are worn over printed and embroidered petticoats and the short capes with narrow pencil pants make the collection trendy and youthful.
Floral abstract artworks are on gathered skirts with off shoulder blouses, long flared gowns and brown and maroon shared chiffon sarees with ribbon embroidery are feminine and glamorous.
The princess gowns in aqua and baby pink are with trails with a generous embellishment of sequin and Swarovski crystals. The drape sarees in mint green have short drapes and corseted blouses.
The bridal collection in the show plays with rich textures of printed and embroidered velvets. Floor length anarkalis with zardozi and thread embroidery with narrow stoles, short jackets with trousers and long A-line kurtas with pencil trousers.
