After wooing their fans across the world with their opulent yet classic creations, designer duo Shyamal & Bhumika present a breathtaking new collection that is an ode to romance while continuing the designers’ handwriting of avant-garde, globally appealing couture touches. Aptly titled ‘A Little Romance’, this is a stunning collection by the duo, drawing romantic inspiration and influences from period Europe.
Each design is inspired by an era that witnessed a drastic and effective change in fashion, where women slowly started dressing to express individual style statement. Elements from nature, period costumes, and architectural frameworks form the visual mood board of this feminine look. “This new line is our interpretation of European elegance coming together with classic Indian form with groundbreaking cuts and theatrical silhouettes, bringing a muted vintage femininity that is precious,” says Shyamal Shodhan.
Fantastical details, contrasting delicate floral embroidery, voluminous silhouettes, fitted bodices, layered and controlled gathers, pleating, waist-clinched elongated yokes, hour glass cuts, contoured jackets, empire-line maxi dresses, embroidered bias panels, crop blouses, evening gowns and illusion sleeves with ankle grazing outfits are just some of the design details that bring out a vision of timeless elegance in every garment of this collection.
