Designer Siddartha Tytler’s SS15 styles are a ready-to-wear collection that comprises of two separate collections; an Indian prêt-a-porter line and a Western prêt line named Chaos.
His prêt lines are comprised of some dazzling styles made on Khadi and Mulmul. Khadi is a material created from hand woven cloth from India made with cotton. Mulmul is a soft and thin plain weave fabric that is normally created from cotton or silk. The use of these fabrics breathe life and character into the designs. As with all his designs, Siddartha Tytler clearly focused on wear-ability, with his collection being described as functional and fashionable. Inspired by the 16th Century motifs of the Mughal Empire as well as Kashmiri motifs, the Mughal side of the collection has been compared to luxurious Persian carpets, whilst the Kashmiri side focuses on shape.
The designs are both contemporary and traditional with that finishing Siddartha edge. The silhouettes, prints and colours all come together as one to offer quite a regal vibe that can either go great for designers or terribly, but this is definitely not the case for Siddartha Tytler. Whilst it is a spring summer collection, the colours can definitely be adapted and worn in autumn and winter.
