Urvashi Kaur’s Spring/Summer 2015 collection ‘Ziran’ digs deep into ethnic communities, wanderlust and incongruent cultural interests and journeys. Inspired by the nomadic folk of Xining, China, the collection focused on reusing classy fabrics like, malkha, khamir, linen with frayed edges, chanderi and matka, with the insertion of denims this season.
The base colour palette remained indigo with occasional outbursts of ecru, black, orange, yellow, pink and turquoise. Subtle accents like, tassels, pom-poms, tapes and ribbons added to the eccentricity of the line of clothes. Also, for the forthcoming Spring/Summer season, Kaur introduced bags, shoes and accessories.
Calculated placements of shibori and block prints ruled the dais. While the tie-and-dye technique spilled over from her previous collections, the silhouettes this time were easy and baggy in nature; slightly asymmetrical with a mix of kimono sleeves, culottes and palazzos.
