Universally inspired, Rimi Nayak made travel around the globe more chic with her collection ‘Unchartered Land‘ at Lakmé Fashion Week Summer/ Resort 2015.
Cartography was the main idea reflected on the clothing line as the models strutted their stuff down the runway. Cartography, the art of making maps, is an age-old technique, which was represented in the collection graphically and through a plethora of interwoven webs like intricate surface embellishment techniques, that provided a base for the theme.
The print was exclusively designed with a Bengali typeface and designer Rimi Nayak developed the graphical artwork. The exclusive design pattern and characteristics were combined into bold color palettes and geometrical shapes to give birth to an abstract collection of maps.
Classy silhouettes came alive in various hand-crafted techniques like batik, cut-work, thread-texturing and hand-embroidery. Long resort-wear dresses, draped jackets, summer tunics, trousers and tops along with flared gowns formed the necessities of the silhouettes. Fabrics like georgette, crepe, hand-loom cotton along with satin in shades of blue and green were prominently featured in the collection.
A spectacular drape that impressed was the sky blue suit dress that featured full sleeves and pockets. Apparel that stood out was the boldly colored sari with a navy blue base and mottled pallav.
‘Unchartered Land‘ by Rimi Nayak made clear yet again as to who runs the world? Girls!
