MAHARADJAH & CO.-Couture 2015
The splendor and glory of the erstwhile Days of the Raj is the driving force behind Rimple and Harpreet’s collection “Maharadjah & Co.” at the India Couture Week 2015 edition. Inspired by the Indian Maharajas and the nobles of that era and their lifestyle which was heavily influenced by their travels to the West, the collection is a charming reverie of humor and splendor in introspection.
Rimple and Harpreet have endeavored to capture the very beginnings of “bespoke” & “portraiture” in India by delving into the vast archives that chronicle the Maharajas and their retinues, their early interactions with western luxury and the collection is reminiscent of the vast and extraordinary commissions that were conferred by these royals on western design houses. With leitmotifs such as the “vase of plenty” the line celebrates the usage of insignias which were used by the former royals in establishing themselves as “royals” while at the same time it is a stunning homage to fine craftsmanship as well.
It is a celebration of royal opulence tempered in hues of ivory & beige, burnished golds and velveteen ruby that harks back to an era when the “Maharadjas” and “Maharanees” were the toast of European high society- equally at ease in the royal ballrooms of Calcutta to Kapurthala as well as the chicest Parisian saloons. Scintillating hand crafted embroideries and dazzling Preciosa crystals veritably breathe life onto the surfaces of each ensemble while the theatrical larger than life silhouettes- dramatic capes and robes, sheer billowy jackets, regal cloaks and lehengas are evocative of a bygone majestic splendor, making the collection a tribute to an opulent era of high fashion, exotic indulgence and rich statements in regal clothing and accessories
