LFW Summer/Resort 2014 Sneak Peak: KHEM’s Collection “DREAMS IN PRUSSIAN BLUE”
With Lakme Fashion Week just round the corner, I would like to give my followers a sneak peak into some of the most awaited designer collections. Starting with KHushboo & PrEM’s (KHEM) collection ‘DREAMS IN PRUSSIAN BLUE’.
Young and dynamic designers KHushboo & PrEM celebrating understated elegance & subtle Indian glamour unleashes an enigmatic themed collection christened as ‘DREAMS IN PRUSSIAN BLUE’ at Lakme Fashion Week – Summer/Resort 2014
KHEM celebrates nature & life this season. Seeking inspiration from the famous saying by Sigmund Freud, ‘Royal Road to the unconscious wish fulfilment’ the LFW SR 2014 collection opens up into blue dreams that communicate significance, and confidence without creating sombre or sinister feelings.. The collection is succession of images, ideas, emotions & sensations that occur involuntarily in the conscious & subconscious mind.
This season the collection focuses on evening centric ensembles in hues blue & white. With ladylike cocktail tunics & swooping floor length dresses the designers have played with loose, attention seizing silhouettes having fluttering long dresses with train backs & short fronts. The lengths are relatively longer and sliced in asymmetric hems.
The collection is majorly tailored but the ethos is to always keep the clothes soft and weightless. Fabrics such as silk velvet, silk georgettes, satins, nylon nets have been used, making the garments float on the body in a way that the fabric is lightly tacked at the seams. Silk yarns of various types, hint of sequins & Swarovski crystals give that extra dash to the collection.
A lot of work has gone into surface decorations. The garments are embellished with traditional hand embroideries at the same time having a contemporary influence.
On this occasion of LFW Summer Resort 2014, the designer duo KHushboo and PrEM confidently states, “Like every season, we are delighted to be a part of this season too. It is a great platform for young fashion enthusiasts like us to showcase our talent and prove our mettle. Mumbai is considered to be fashion hub and we are optimistic that our flamboyant yet subtle, traditional yet modern collection will spell urban chic couture and mesmerize the fashion aficionados.”
KHEM’s ‘DREAMS IN PRUSSIAN BLUE’ adheres to its affinity for simplicity.
