SHIVAN AND NARRESH
Runway Report
 

Shivan and Narresh are art circuit regulars so it isn't a surprise that they continued the artistic thread into Summer Resort 2019, steeped in inspiration from the indigenous art forms of Bengal, Odisha and Andhra Pradesh. The rich imagery of two tribal art forms — Bengal's Pattachitra and Andhra Pradesh's Tholu Bommalata leather puppetry — is a prominent feature and the duo interpreted it in their showing, in collaboration with R|Elan, at Lakme Fashion Week with indigenous botanical prints.

 

The most attractive pieces in the luxury holiday apparel line were layered looks moulded to the body with laser-sharp tailoring! I loved the skirt-on-skirt look i,e, sheer slate skirt and slate fringed skirt, worn with scarf bustier. Now this may sound way OTT but looked just right for those star-truffled yatch parties! As did the ruffled jumpsuit with cutouts. Following the and Pattachitra- Tholu Bommalata inspired botanical print story was an eyelet lace detailed lehenga with a bustier — all eyes on this bridesmaid please! And, for that hot date, there's nothing that would arrest his attention more than the one-shoulder cutout evening dress trimmed with black pearls. Phew! A quilted vest and shirt and fluid pants made an impact in menswear. Loved the way all looks were accessorised with statement headband and eyewear!

 

Reminiscing about the show, I couldn't help being in awe; Shivan Narresh SR19 will reap dividends in the splashiest yatch parties, cocktail circuit and resort destinations. The duo stayed true to their signature and it crackled with energy. If they nurture their devotion to detailing, all collections will continue to be sold out before reaching the racks!!
