Shweta Kapur for WIFW SS 14

 

Designer Shweta Kapur’s SS14 collection, called ‘Cut In Knot Up’, was inspired by Chinese characters of Hanzi.

 

The collection explored distortion of classic tailoring in a completely new dimension. Using the shape of the logograms, parts of the garments were extended from the patterns that were further developed into knots.

 

With the same shapes, the angels on each character were used as cut-outs.
The colour palette moved from a vibrant story of electric blue, pop orange, cherry red and coral to a more neutral territory of creamy whites and blacks.
