Designer Mrinalini shows chair inspired accessories at LFW

Inspired by the humble chair that is present in every home, Mrinalini Chandra’s Lakmé Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2014 collection called “Please Have a Seat” was a visually arresting line of jewellery. The elements of the collection were from the grand Singhansans of the past, the Peacock Throne, the comfortable rocking chair and the Palkis that carried noblemen in India. 
 
Cleverly crafting the accessories from customised gold alloy, recycled glass stones and semi-precious gems, like jade, onyx, coated pearls, etc. Mrinalini visualised an interesting movement to adorn the female form. 
 
Giant motifs emerged attached with rows of pearls for an imposing necklace, while corals edged the neckpieces. The chair design appeared in varying sizes to firmly re-enforce the theme. Geometric chair designs were turned into flat neck items and the zodiac wheel appeared as a large brooch. 
 
Chairs were interlinked for an arm ornament, a gold bolero, a graphic 3D rendition for necklaces, cummerbunds as well as ornaments for the hair. Mrinalini Chandra’s bridal jewellery too followed the chair design for not only the necklace, shoulder dusters and nose ring, but even the huge kaliras for each wrist. 
 
When selecting jewellery that will turn into conversation pieces at any event, Mrinalini Chandra urged her buyers to “Please Have a Seat”.
