Shantanu and Nikhil's collection “To Die For” in India Bridal Fashion Week, 2013 truly lives up to its name ..... When we first saw the preview during the press meet, modeled by Zoya Afroz ..... we were a tad dissappointed .... because the gown looked like it belonged to their collection from their last showing at Aamby Valley couture week ...... But were we in for a big surprise !! ...... This collection was all about feminity, grace, elegance, sophistication and a new age Bride who likes to be contemporary and chic and yet is love, emotion and heartbeats ... drumming an eternal song in gold !! ..... Of course, both brothers are reknowned for their ethereal layering of chantilly and tulle, and it was present in wispy whisperings and flounces throughout their collection ..... but the fluidity and grace on the ramp was so beautiful this time .... that we had goosebumps at the poetry in motion !!
"Place me like a seal over your heart, like a seal on your arm; for love is as strong as death, its jealousy unyielding as the grave. It burns like blazing fire, like a mighty flame. Many waters cannot quench love; rivers cannot wash it away. If one were to give all the wealth of his house for love, it would be utterly scorned."
The above quote from the song of Solomon truly describes the era of romantic renaissance in Rome and Paris, which Shantanu and Nikhil ended up contemporizing so well .... The collection reminded me of the Uffizi Gallery, the most popular museums of Florence and its famous art works by many of Italy’s Renaissance Masters ..... As they say, Love is patient, love is kind ..... It does not envy, it does not boast ..... It is not proud, It is not rude, it is not self-seeking .... It is not easily angered ..... how cunningly the duo ended up selecting the color palette to evoke the above mentioned emotions with the shades of camel, chocolate, beige .... and presenting gold the way gold has never been presented before ..... To keep the emotions moving .... they gradually segued into red, black , grey and olive .... but all with that subtle dash of gold ..... It was very Rococo in the way they made it luxe, ornate and with strong emphasis on silhouette and shape .... in creamy, pastel-like colours, gold leaf booti embellishments, and even the curving hathphools seen on both men and women in gold !!! .... The themes were definitely love and gaiety .... and were reflected in the flattering silhouettes with elements of nature, curving lines, asymmetry and also on the beautiful dewy fresh make up which we so loved .... As their press release stated .... "This collection focussed on the soft and beautiful bride who always embraces everything feminine and dotes on chic and contemporary fashion." .... Without much ado .... ladies and gentlemen .... a collection to die for :)
