The designer headed into the rich heritage of the Middle Eastern gulf this season as style takes on an Uzbekistan twist with a boho luxe feel.
Whether it’s warm hued ikats, geometric tribal prints or silhouettes with a rich Persian heritage, this seasons autumn/winter styles are bursting with Sub-Saharan vivacity.
The bold, graphic prints and simple shapes are a gutsier take on the other ethnic trends of the season: more luxe and engineered than whimsical boho; less contrived than the jingly coins and bejewelled scarves of the global nomad.
The fabrics are organic and sustainable in tune with the environment and definitely in touch with Rajdeep’s mentor, Nature itself. Pure silk crepes, georgettes & Neoprene are combined with delicate tulles and further enhanced with silk velvets as accents in appliqué. Swarovski elements have been sparingly sprinkled to give a sense of richness and elegance to the ensemble.
Furthermore, boiled wool in various trend colors as Marsala, Slate, Honey, Wheat, Jade, Teal, Midnight Blue, Rococo Red and Mandarin Orange have been used creating this seasons palette, have been intricately laser cut and used for embroideries along with motifs of winter berries in mohair wool to add to the fuzzy warmth.
The results are not just wearable but desirable, too.
