Divyam Mehta’s Into The Woods Men’s Collection at Amazon India Fashion Week 2016
(fashion show) Designer Divyam Mehta is known for his eclectic creations. This year at the Amazon India Fashion Week 2016 A/W we were excited and awaiting to see his new line ‘ Into The Woods’.
The collection is an ode to the modern globetrotter, a man who travels across cultures and time zones, and seamlessly adapts to different environments to celebrate his diverse experiences.
Into the woods is a dramatic infusion from across the globe from Indian embroidery to Italian tailoring and Japanese art. The line you see is a melting pot of cultures, techniques and technology.
Global influences are celebrated across the collection with the combination of an Indian silk shibori gilet that is teamed with Japanese cotton cupro samurai trousers, a linen knit t-shirt and leopard print hair on leather sneakers.
The garments features earthy hues to harmoniously form shibori patterns and create stunning designs.
The models who are on the ramp are sporting samurai trousers, gilets (nehru jackets), long shirts, desert boots, boat shoes and oxfords.
The designs also has a combination of Japanese fabrics, silks, merino wool, linen knits and khadi denims infused with traditional Indian Kantha embroidery and the quilting technique.
The collection is a series of masterpieces of wearable art, resplendent is its use of colour, fabric and technique, and designed to suit a sophisticated sensibility.
