Ace designer Shantanu & Nikhil’s collection titled Resurgence at the ongoing India Couture Week 2020, presented by the FDCI in association with Hindustan Times, drive into the believe that the way of life will be back to normalcy.
Hope reincarnates like a fallen Phoenix amidst the post-apocalyptic horizon; fluttering it’s strengthened metallic winds to a sky of neo-illuminance. The Resurgence begins!
The Resurgence is an ode to hope, it is the spirit to resurface and recommence our duties to the universe. With an almost spiritual connotation to the capabilities of cyclic existence, the collection celebrates a renewed strength & power to adapt and #RiseAgain.
While humanity takes baby steps towards normalcy, the collection reconstructs romance through fluidic drapes & godly architecture symbolic of a ‘beacon of hope’. The abundant usage of metallic gold & sheen goes well with our contemporary sense of aesthetic & decadence of the collection bringing to the Center Stage, interpretation, and redefined the neo-luxe bride.
Metallic influences, incredible blacks, greys and expressive, redolent reds, goth applique, classic zardozi to redefine structure & linearity that is signature to Shantanu & Nikhil’s couture.
Draped Kurtas for men a modish companion in the pattern of bandhgalas and sherwanis. The models are symbolizing Grecian goddesses in the outstanding and extraordinary skirts.
Shantanu & Nikhil have always had an architectural undercurrent to their collection & this time was no different, hence they decided to shoot this collection as a fashion film & not a typical runway show. The Roseate Hotel in New Delhi was a perfect Anti-trend architectural setting that added to the overall narrative- The Resurgence.
Shot in five episodes, the film resurfaces like a volatile glitter only to paint the world brighter going forward.
