Inspired by Suket Dhir’s childhood – summers spent in mango orchards playing with children, under the watchful doting eye of his grandfather, was this collection. In true International Woolmark Prize tradition, the collection is Merino wool, woven in an Ombre range of mainly blues- reminiscent of the changing skies.
The collection sees the use of Ikat weaves and Kasuti embroidery technique characterized by the symmetry of the motifs used. Trees laden with mangoes, populated by parrots are inspired by his memories. The linings are all printed silk, mostly hand block printed with motifs of parrots and umbrellas.
All of this has been translated into contemporary global silhouettes to make it global in true sense. Its trans seasonal and gender fluid aspects make it a very versatile collection.
