The pandemic might have caused global lockdowns but it couldn’t lock up our (and by our we mean all of us in the business of couture) need to express, create and innovate. A lot of us took the time to reflect upon what’s important (rightfully so) and introspect. We pushed ourselves further, found inspiration in unexpected things and are ready to adapt to newer ways of working. Now, it’s time to thrive and design what could be our best work yet.
After what felt like eons, physical couture fashion exhibits are back (with changes the industry mindfully adopted) with exciting themes- some new, some bold and some timeless as ever.
Here, we have put together our favourite themes from this year’s Couture shows that have awed and inspired us. We hope they have the same impact (and more) on you.
While we can’t say this is a 2021 phenomenon, we love the modern and dynamic take on the monochrome look that designers are experimenting with. It brings this attitude of nonchalance to couture. From chic, elegant to sexy, we are rooting for each of these looks.
Monochrome as a theme, in one way or the other; is, was and will always be couturiers’ favourite form of expression.
Elaborate and some more!
Couture continues to embrace and experiment with beads, crystals, sequins and stones in all shapes, sizes and colours. Well, some are ready to innovate and create new materials as well. It’s the celebration of flawless craftsmanship and artistry that does it for us.
This season, our favourite designers are saying, more is more! All of us could also use some more shine and sparkle in our lives currently, right?
Flower Puff, girls!
From big and bold to dainty and slick. From pretty prints to luxuriously bejewelled. Flowers have captivated the runway this year, and we are not complaining.
We are in awe of how couture designers have brought in their individuality and made age-old florals seem like a breath of fresh air.
That’s all Folk!
Couture designs inspired by folk-art, antiquity and traditions have always excited us. It’s the prints, intricate thread-work and the opportunity to have a contemporary take on it all that we love about this theme.
Designers chose to celebrate the treasures of history with intricate workmanship.
