For the Luxe Pret Spring-Summer 2021, Nikita Mhaisalkar unveils ‘Guzel’, a collection that embodies a luxe tapestry of glamour and antiquity of Turkey.

This collection at the fashion week createed an equal part fluid and dream-like statement with vintage corsets, sharply tailored evening suits, majestic kaftans, masterful jackets & balloon hemmed maxis.
Invoking the immortal symbolism of Turkish art, traditional baroque embroidery is used in the collection in a rich palette of gold and bronze, elevated with precious colour stones to create a sense of radical luxury. Each piece is eloquently crafted with the magic of traditional handloom techniques. Swathes of bespoke corduroy and sustainable bamboo jersey remain the essence of the line.
Samant Chauhan’s collection was an ode to colours. Colours of reimagining a world in memory. It is an attempt to redefine those old structure silhouette with cold shoulder and low necklines in silk fabric. Most of it was a homage to changing moods and absence , which endure despite love and other fleeting happiness.
Their collection for the fashion week was about fun with clothing, in monochromes and gypsy vibes. Robes, jackets and anarkalis in Chanderi were coordinated with skirts, jump suits and trousers. The mirror work from the houses of Kutch adds some soft shine. The digital prints took a blurred inspiration from treasured Raja Ravi Verma prints. The bead detailing on every edge is inspired from Kutch with hint of mirrors and thread work.
