New Delhi: Ritu Kumar’s dazzling ensemble takes us on a journey to the world of our own well-known indigenous legacy of handicrafts.

Ritu’s prêt line celebrated spiritual and colourful visuals that are taken in different timeframes well-woven and depicting the sartorial aspect.

Her silhouettes speak a modern language. It seemed like a script written eons ago but read aloud in the contemporary world. Saluting this label’s spirit to highest levels, the approach is well received.

The fabrics are a palette of traditional jacquards, silk lycra, woolen blends and jerseys, pouring the essential and nourishing ingredients in to the life of every Indian. A vast story inclusive of block prints, engineered wovens, loosely thrown yarns over the bodices make a larger than life impression.

The colour palette splashes the Indian rustic shades on to the modern canvas, making it all the more interesting. Beiges, blacks, indigos, burnt oranges leave a deep impact.

The accessories are well coordinated with metal bangles, bags and neckpieces.
