SUNEET VARMA’s Spring Couture 2012:
The Eternal Lightness of Being - To love, to hold, to kiss
Suneet Varma’s 25th anniversary celebrations come alive with his Spring Couture 2012 collection.
‘The eternal lightness of being- to love, to hold, to kiss’, a light, airy and effortlessly feminine couture line that is graceful, versatile and elegant.
A dreamy day, a lazy breeze, and the laughter of lilacs; an idyllic summer mood set off by soft hues, colorful prints, and languid silhouettes. Waves of crinkled chiffon, crushed georgette and organza create light caressing textures in refreshing yellows, somber pinks, limes and blues. A concoction of nature prints in the harmonious pairing of ebony and ivory with a dash of fuschia and aqua brings sunshine to the warm heart. Kimono tops matched with wide legged palazzo pants, a parade of delicate romantic dresses in floral jodhpuri print, flared skirts, draped dresses and short tops maintain the youthful experience. Tailored tunics and stylized sarees in fine chiffons with soft hues in a multi colored palette tiptoe lightly into spring.
