Suhani Pittie’s jewellery has always made great style statements at fashion shows and at Lakmé Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2014 her collection called ‘Found And Lost’ was all about love that needs to be treasured and valued. With German silver, plated brass and copper, acrylic as well as pearls, Suhani wove an interesting story, which featured as the main highlight for a multiple offering of innovative jewellery.
Hairpins were eye-catching, while ear buttons, ear cuffs, palm cuffs, harnesses and earrings added a new dimension to ornaments. Necklaces, belts and buckles had the distinct Suhani Pittie stamp. Very interesting were the intricately crafted jewelled harness and shoulder cuffs. Giving special attention to the graceful hands of a woman, Suhani adorned them with a variety of cuffs that were seen on arms, wrists and palms. Bracelets and rings were given pride of place in the collection and the addition of gloves was a unique option.
An expert in jewellery techniques, Suhani used minakari, lace-work, folding, pressing, shredding, curling, leveling and extrusion with great skill and brought in Indian Repousse to give glamour to her jewellery. The bold giant neckpiece with 3D rose motifs, which were Suhani’s favoured designs, looked imposing around the model’s neck. The giant rose-linked bracelet and the graphic earrings were stunners on the ramp.
Layers of petals in metal with tiny floral detailing were a part of a magnificent necklace, while sprays of interconnected leaves formed a stunning piece of jewellery. Minakari suspender necklace, vintage harness, belt and palm cuffs looked very New-Age yet a touch of heritage reflected in them. Pressed metal gloves, ear buttons, folded metal detachable necklace, the metal two-sided neck piece, shredded and metal cuffs were breathtaking in their design, craftsmanship and finish.
