Dedicating her “Nomadistaan” collection to the new breed of globe trotters, Shruti Sancheti created a perfect blend of textiles and crafts at Lakmé Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2015. Keeping the focus on non-conformist lines, Shruti opted for rich hues that ranged from the popular Marsala, soft peach, blush, tangerine, to vibrant crimson red, rose, pink, burnt orange, yellow, indigo, ochré, blue and olive.
The fabric base remained organic as pure woven khadi, eri, matka and summer silk came together with organic cotton to form the soul of the collection. Prints played an exciting role as Shruti brought together a mélange of tie and dye, Shibori, leheriya, mothda, resist dyeing with wax and block prints. The detailing was intricate with heer, Bhagat embroidery, kaleen or carpel embellishments and the fabulous banjara work seen in the artistic Thar region but now given a modern slant. Giving mix and match options to the dresser, Shruti displayed a relaxed layered look that started with maxis, midis, floppy pants, jumpsuits, pleated pants, tail coat jackets, swishy long or spliced skirts and completed the line with saris.
Detailing appeared in the form of assorted pockets on sleeves that added to the fun-filled quirky nature of the collection. Zippers gave skirts and tunics a glitzy detailed touch, when they appeared in pairs down the front of slashed kurtas. Shorts were seen with side slit long tunics, a tiny shrug added to beauty of a brown maxi and the black and blue shaded sari and choli revealed contemporary flavor.
For striking rustic inspired vibrant clothes, the young and those young at heart need not travel far since “Nomadistaan” by Shruti Sancheti is within easy reach!
