Suneet Varma's ‘Decorative Arts of India’ Spring Couture 2015 show for Lakme Fashion Week draws inspiration from the incredible traditional Motifs and Embroideries of Gujarat, Rajasthan, Punjab and the Southern states of India with Topkapi elements taken from the Mughal period .... With any other couturier, so many diverse elements would be mind bogglingly difficult to pull off ... but trust Suneet to set the right grandeur for his show sponsor Reliance Jewels crown !! ... As a brand, Suneet Varma Couture has been showcasing spectacular collaborations time and again, and his Couture show at a mainly Summer Resort Pret Fashion Week must have been a super welcome for the May June brides who are even now putting their trousseau together !! .... This is one aspect of Indian Fashion Weeks that differ vastly from the International ones ... Bridal couture is required according to the Marriage Muhurats in a calendar year and the upcoming months of May and June is heavy duty bridal season requiring ensembles for all the elaborate functions Indian marriages entails ... be it a resort beach wedding, a royal palace wedding or glamorous bachelorettes and cocktails in jet set destinations !! ... And Suneet Varma Couture is one of the go to ateliers for any bride, bridesmaid or family ! ... The ensembles he showcased for his Spring couture line superbly complements the Rajasthani Kundan, Junagarhi Polki, Filigree, Nakashi and temple jewellery that he styled with such a master eye ... For the modern Indian too, he offered stunning separates in the form of corset blouses as crop tops, cropped jackets, shirt dresses, short tunics and capri trousers .... Our absolute favourites no doubt is Rikee Chatterjee's cape with trousers (third look), Sanea Sheikh's abstract mirror work jacket (look 18), Alesia Raut's long navy coat with hand embroidered mirror work jaal (looks 25), Sucheta Sharma's blush pink saree ( look 29), Candice Pinto's divine white on white ( look 32) and that deliciously pink and peach lehenga Rikee C rocks (look 34) !!

Collection Note :

The collection titled ‘Decorative Arts of India’ draws inspiration from the incredible traditional Motifs and Embroideries of Gujarat, Rajasthan, Punjab and the Southern states of India. The collection is romantic, feminine and flirtatious.

The collection is traditional Indian with a modern twist As an interesting departure for Suneet, this time he uses a lot of shades of red from sindoor to vermillion to gulaal and fuchsia pinks from rose to deep magenta that lie at the very heart of Rajasthan. Mirror work embellishment with large borders in thread embroidery. Stark white and ivory with color on color aari embroidery and dark navy and cobalt blue with antique and burnt gold and copper thread embellishments.

The silhouette is long and slender with interesting layering in sheer fabrics. Two piece sarees with embellished corset blouses with delicate antique zardosi, long anarkali kurtas with mirrorwork and thread embroidered all over jaal. Short tunics with color on color thread and Swarovski crystals with draped dhoti salwars, Angrakha style kalidar kurtas worn with short cropped jackets with draped collars and delicate bead embroidery.The fabrics are in silk chiffon, Georgette, silk jacquard and jewel toned rich velvets.

The collection features sheer chiffon sarees decked with gold aari and thread embroidery in large floral motifs reminiscent of the beauty of the Punjab royalty. A mix of traditional Indian textiles in bright colors combined with the sensibility of the royal costumes of India. The highlights of the collection are white on white thread embroidery with a dash of color on long and short tunics with Capri trousers and Patiala salwars with tasseled triangular stoles.

The silhouettes of the collection are slim, sheer and narrow with very delicate embroideries. Sheer tulle sarees with grey and oyster pearls encrusted with SWAROVSKI CRYSTALS.The collection features long kalidar kurtas in black, teal, ivory and red with thread embroidery in ‘Topkapi’ motifs. The highlights of the collection are sheer sarees with velvet jackets; lightweight silk skirts and tunics with nostalgic antique embroideries; block printed ensembles in many shades of blue, Persian blue, turquoise, and navy teemed with dull gold. 

Says Suneet, "India has had a centuries old love affair with couture or made to measure for pleasure. There is no denying the luxurious indulgence of precious finery, the magical beauty of one- off embellished wedding attire and the sparkle of personalized jewels that are made to match with it.”
