Spring Summer 2013 Collection
Kiran Uttam Ghosh's Spring Summer 2013 collection interprets masculine pieces with underlying femininity, occasionally toying with the boundaries of androgyny and fosters the concept of transition, transformation and evolution. Leonard Cohen's poetry underlined the rebellious undercurrents of this collection at the ongoing Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week. Kiran picks shapes, embellishments and motifs from the Middle East, the Orient and India and blends them in a languid yet elegant form of comfort dressing. Metallic components, stark placement embroideries, colour and print blocking met Ghosh's signature layering, edgy silhouettes and soft geometric shapes in a vivid palette of spice colours and vibrant hues. Innovatively using sheer and opaque plays and experimenting with constructed separates against flow, Kiran Uttam Ghosh presented new layering ideas that go beyond the 'tunics with trousers' theory. Credited for creating shapes and styles that are of the moment but not bound by time, Kiran Uttam Ghosh presented a collection of easy to wear pieces that surprisingly skimmed several of this season's biggest trend notes. She also introduced new interpretations of staples from the KUG archives like the novel Sarong-sari along with interesting renditions of her pleated line.
