[tab:Feed]Batik Meets Pop-Art
The designer duo has taken batik prints to a different level altogether. Deriving inspiration from pop art, batik motifs of giant sunglasses and cars were seen all over the dresses, trousers, coats, kurtis and even handbags! The collection was a tribute to the designer’s images and vision from the past as contemporary prints were combined with traditional techniques in range of simple and fluid fabrics. The first ensemble featured bold stripes in bleached shades of pink, white and black on a long coat teamed with a wide legged trouser and later in men’s coats and sarees. Blouses featured bold embroidered rose motifs, which were later used as prints in kurtas. Bold stripes continued to prevail in T-shirts and long dresses in shades of blue, vermilion and yellow with hints of detailed floral motifs, which were intricately embroidered in hems. Bold batik motifs gave a twist to the tale. A series of sunglasses and cars were seen in an earthy colour palette of brown, yellow, orange, sap green and cobalt. Dresses in choco-brown and cobalt had intricately embroidered floral motifs at hems and bodice. An array of garments in cobalt shimmered in sequins concluding a very ethereal show.
