With India Couture Week 2020 going virtual as a result of COVID-19, Suneet Varma presents a brilliant timeless collection as he closes Day 1.
Suneet Varma’s Couture Collection is a modern and Theatrical representation of the modern Indian Woman who lives in the “today” – yet embraces the romance of traditional Indian couture – which is like a sixth sense of seduction. It has its own vocabulary and language, like an elaborate braid entwined with history, myth and tradition. It may be modern, Whimsical or demure- but always magnificent and carefully crafted. The Mix of Traditional Motifs with Abstract artworks enhanced by the age old Crafts of India make for a Perfect – Feminine , Romantic and Modern Woman.
” I believe Fashion is the politest way of speaking about sex- But I like the subtle unspoken word, left to the imagination of the wearer. The glamour and sensuality in this collection come through the use of sheer and lucid fabrics, the delicate placement of embellishments, the drapes and the unexpected details- and what they reveal or conceal,” says Suneet Varma.
The collection, titled ‘Timeless by Suneet Varma’, is segregated into three mini-collections, and remains very much part of the brand’s DNA. The glamour and sensuality come through the use of sheer, lucid fabrics, delicate placement of embellishments like glass bead and sequin work, and a mélange of traditional and modern motifs like flowers, abstract artworks and butterflies. “I wanted to address what the youth wants and how they’d like to feel wearing couture,” he shares about the thought-process.
