The designer duo Shivan Bhatiya and Narresh Kukreja presented their latest collection at the Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week Autumn-Winter 2013 edition.
The statement of this season for the designer duo, specialized in resortwear, were vibrant floral prints that placed in some garments created an eye-catching contrast between the coloured flowers and the black background.
Floral prints are unusual for autumn-winter runways, often associated with monochromes and simple prints. But this is the season of subversion, when the black is a bridalwear tone and the sweatshirts are going luxe. So, from Valentino to Shivan & Narresh we can admire floral motifs and prints blooming on the catwalk.
Regarding the last collection’s prints, Bhaitya says "The emergence of floral as a winter print is largely due to increased experimentation by designers to break fashion clichés," and Narresh adds "The print recreates a child's drawings with sketch pens and has a raw, scribbly look to it".
