The designing duo ensured that craft techniques like patchwork, hand stitching and appliqués formed the perfect base of the ensembles. Assembled surfaces and graphic patterns were cleverly merged with prints and designs that brought a renewed visual delight to techniques of recycling, the company said in a press release.
“The eco-friendly collection by Abraham and Thakore magnificently combines sustainability and style, and it enhances key aspects of our fabric of the future - R|Elan. The collection showcases excellent efforts in different ways to create fashion using practices that are sustainable and mindful. Ensembles like these drive us at Reliance to stretch the limits and bring out new technologies that are more sustainable and eco-friendly,” said Gunjan Sharma, CMO – polyester business, Reliance Industries Ltd.
“The process of the breaking down of PET materials to create textiles is a crucial step in the circular journey of responsible fashion production. The disassembling and reassembling of materials have inspired this collection. It takes a look at the traditional methods of recycling and up cycling of textiles that are a part of our common textile heritage,” David Abraham and Rakesh Thakore said.
Keeping the silhouettes relaxed and timeless, the designers showcased stylish, modern, ready-to-wear options that moved effortlessly from dawn to dusk. Tunics, pants, wrap skirts and dresses vied for attention with kimono inspired jackets, while cleverly constructed saris would be welcomed by the jet setting buyers.
Turning waste into glamour, Abraham and Thakore added a capsule evening wear look that dazzled with sequins and was ingeniously dreamt up from sheets of discarded PET material.
When it came to the colour card, the designing pair selected the neutral classics like black and white, but added haute shades of burgundy, red, wine, coffee and olive. Some of the eye catchers were the simple, black, wrap, long skirt that was ideal for Brunch when teamed with a basic but stylish blouse with minute detailing.
For something more Avant Garde, it was the belted calf length, formal, trench coat with wide lapels that looked stunning and when worn with simple parallels it made a great fashion statement. When it came to lean silhouettes, it was the burgundy maxi with a contrasting wrap skirt that dazzled with bold abstract patterns. the release added.
David Abraham and Rakesh Thakore’s recycled PET collection ‘Assemble, Disassemble and Reassemble’ by R|Elan was a mindful, sustainable line that blended tradition with technology and New Age materials in a contemporary, stylish format.
