The collection was based on a colour palette of mustard, peach, and brown, hints of blue, aquamarine, and neutral shades like white and black. We spotted quirky fish prints on dresses, jackets, kurtas and boleros which added a zing to the collection.

There was an interesting mix of batik on the garments for both men and women; the collection comprised of asymmetrical dresses, sheer jackets, pin striped horizontal pleats, layered sleeves, fabulous cuts and refreshing colours. A tasteful collection with a whiff of androgyny elevated the style quotient of the ensembles. We experienced a gamut of arresting and well-finished silhouettes that enthralled us all the way back home.
Our Verdict: Fabulous use of surface detailing! A very wearable collection!
