Kiran Ghosh showcases easy-to-wear festive line
Nov '12
Credited for creating shapes and styles that are of the moment but not bound by time, designer Kiran Uttam Ghosh recently showcased an easy to wear festive line of soft multi layered jackets, kurtas and saris.

Inspired by and presented to Leonard Cohen’s poetry, the rebellious undercurrents of this collection elaborate its timeless appeal.  Skimming the season’s biggest trend notes it offers a study in Contrasts - feminine with masculine undertones, conformist vs. non-conformist silhouettes, monochromatic fronts with divergent coloured backs and sheer vs. opaque.

Other underlining elements include surprises like stark placement embroideries, bright shading, playful multi-level hemlines and creations styled to be worn over the classic white collared shirt.

The collection captures the disheveled perfection of white collared shirts with a selection of styles ranging from dressed down to high glam and from resort to evening or festive wear.

It introduces new interpretations of staples from the KUG archives like the Sarong-sari along with some interesting renditions of the signature pleated line. Ghosh has also expanded her coveted ‘Ghosts of Flowers’ series to include layered ensembles with white lilies and orange palm leaves. 

The line is artful with edgy silhouettes, elegant drapes and Ghosh's signature layering evident in every creation.

Showcasing at: Ogaan, Emporio; Samsara, Bengaluru and Aza Mumbai. The collection is also available at 85 Lansdowne, Kolkata; Amethyst, Chennai; Elahe, Hyderabad and other leading designer boutiques.
