Blurring the lines between adorning and dressing, between a product of style and a piece of art; the TARUN TAHILIANI Autumn/Winter Collection 2014 does away with the distinction between clothes and jewellery. Inspired by ornaments found all over the world, this season they dig deep in the trenches of the heritage of the world and strike gold.

“I am an individualist, evolving a new technique, which though not necessarily Indian in the traditional sense of the word, will yet be fundamentally Indian in spirit” so said Amrita Sher-Gil, who went on to interpret the life of Indian poor on the plane of colour.

“This is what struck me as a huge similarity when I was wandering through the exhibition, that in fact this studio does precisely that, straining to capture the last free flowing drapes into easy fluid structured forms, as observed from around the subcontinent and parade with the vibrancy of colour, the intricate embellishments and the symbols that came to define these races.

The ornate kaftans balance the heavy gold pattern with recurring jewel motif making it luxuriant and indulgence ready. No jewel inspired series is complete without influence of the Mughals – the signature stone-work, miniature paintings and mango shaped motifs with Swarovski Elements represent a delicate glamour in gossamer, multi-colour hues.

From jewels of India to all over the world; Pleated Enamel is a slimming print, which creates the illusion of drape. Tops with mukaish-work and a full village-belle skirt add elements of fun, while striking kurtas and tunics with medallions and doubloons painted on form an emblazoned bounty. Paying homage to Tapestry; velvet, net and zardozi come together to form the ultimate peasant dress with jewelled collar. The delicate kalidar kurta in floating sheer silk lends elfin qualities and the Art Nouveau influence with its graceful curvilinear form makes it ideally suited for blouses.

There is also new found emphasis on print – multiscarf patterns where various squares form a singular print and
