Su­mona Parekh’s Fes­tive Col­lec­tion Builds Bridges in Time

The Luxury Collection - - Contents -

Su­mona Parekh’s de­sign phi­los­o­phy jux­ta­poses the old with the new and her new Fes­tive Col­lec­tion re­flects this ethos as it seam­lessly and ef­fort­lessly spans decades and cen­turies to syn­cre­tise a look that is at once dis­tinc­tive

and fa­mil­iar.

The look is an amal­gam in other ways as well. The de­signer has deftly com­bined the tra­di­tional Balu­chori weave of Ben­gal with Ja­panese kirigami self on self work, zardozi em­broi­dery and aari grace work, to add a new char­ac­ter to the out­fits, that is at once, el­e­gant and grand. There has been a con­scious ef­fort to as­sim­i­late the cur­rent spirit of “Make in In­dia” into the col­lec­tion.

On a prac­ti­cal note, ev­ery piece in the col­lec­tion has been de­signed to be suit­able for both day and night wear, adding much needed flex­i­bil­ity to your wardrobe.
