Indian designer Shruti Sancheti celebrates the new age gypsies, who live and work in urban areas without residing there permanently and prefer changing locations frequently, in her latest Summer/Resort 2015 collection Nomadistaan.
Using natural sustainable fibres like pure woven khadi, eri silk, matka silk, summer silk and organic cotton, the Pinnacle label designer has decorated the range with traditional, intricate tribal crafts, surface ornamentation methods and printing techniques such as heer bharat embroidery, Kaleen or carpet weaving and beaded banjara work.
Incorporating printing techniques like tie-and-dye, shibori, leheriya, mothda, wax resist dyeing and block prints, the neo-tribal look of the line has been enhanced with shades of soft peaches, blush, tangerine, crimson red, rose pink, burnt orange, ochre yellow, indigo blue, olive and marsala.
Created in unrestricted, free flowing, long, relaxed and layered silhouettes with interesting details, the collection’s mix-and-matched pieces are midis, maxis, slouchy pants, tail jackets, long skirts, spliced skirts and sarees.
Having received several accolades and acclaim at prestigious events like Lakme Fashion Week and other international soirees, Shruti Sancheti started her brand Pinnacle, which is currently retailing through many premium stores and online portals nationally and internationally, in 2009. (PB)
