New Delhi: Delhi-based designer Sunil Mehra`s latest collection is inspired from Lord Krishna`s life and mythology and features contemporary ethnic chic embellished with motifs of Krishna, the peacock feather and flute, associated with the popular god.
"The collection will be a journey of Lord Krishna`s Madhurya-rasa and imparts the same feel, the way Krishna used to stand and play the flute. The garments present a range of contemporary ethnic separates with a relaxed feel," said Mehra.
The line is divided into three segments - formal, fusion and traditional wears. The entire collection will illustrate an array of men`s wear like kurta with polo trousers, short kurtas with cigarette pants teamed with waist coats, white tuxedos in linen silk fabric, and summer suits with special four pockets, both for formal and casual look.
"The motifs of Krishna, Maur Pankh and Basuri will be the high point of the collection and will attract those fashion-forward males who want to mix style and ethnicity in the look," Mehra said.
A special collection of short sherwanis has also been introduced by the designer for summer. The fabric used is a blend of both linen and silk on the colour palette, which varies from cream, white and beige, with hints of gold.
Whether it be special jacquard weaves with the peacock feather motif, Sanskrit lettering in miniature embroideries, the colours turmeric and saffron, or hand painted scenes in linings - all the garments bear a direct or an indirect relevance to Lord Krishna or Vrindavan.
The collection is available at the designer`s store in the capital.
