Twirl with the wind in Arpita Mehta’s Autumn/Winter’18 collection where the vibe is breezy, and the silhouettes breezier. The designer has captured the effervescent spirit of Caprese with a fusion destination wear collection that spells feminine yet flirty.
Prints have always been an integral part of Arpita’s brand ethos, and the undying allure of floral hydrangeas shares top billing in her new line-up, along with geometrical accents and deck chair stripes. The jetsetting woman on the go can look for some effortless off-duty chic with kaftan capes, tiered ruffle pants, boho maxis and bitsy bralettes. Those looking to dial things up a notch can expect to make heads turn in the lapel panelled cape and ruffled tulip skirts.
With a colour palette progressing from dainty pastels to siren reds, frozen blues and mauves, the designer has also trained a laser focus on the embroidery that utilises poth in a distinctive way along with mirror, cutdana and threadwork. Inspired by linear motifs and hydrangea flowers, the mood is dictated by the beautiful mélange of linear as well as floral embroidery.
