Couture 2019

Paying homage to his atelier’s 15 year anniversary, Gaurav revisits and revives the concept of couture. For Couture Autumn/Winter 2019, he takes inspiration from endless waves; it is cosmic, fluid, sculptural yet boundless and eternal. The garments are sculpted into marvellous architectonic creations that are harmonized with surreal designs—creating ensembles that personify ‘Wearable Art’. Gaurav’s clothes defy the orthodox anatomical construction of a garment—they are perfectly molded to flatter and fit the body well.

This season, Gaurav Gupta introduces an exclusive two-piece capsule collection. The first capsule, aims at decoding the human anatomy in fluid assemblage. From voluminously wide to tiered to perpendicularly slim and narrow silhouettes. We have used abstract lines, fluid and unusual wave-like silhouettes and drapes. The lines epitomize the fierce waves of the immaculate waters—they flow in a rhythm creating a beautiful symphony. Their path is abstract, their form is amorphous and their soul is everlasting—this philosophy is the core value of our brand.

For his glocal bride, Gaurav imagines a charismatic, graceful yet, playful, modern, well- travelled intellectual who wants to have fun—waltzing in the prismatic corridors of the Hall of Mirrors in multi-layered and cascading bustles along with feathers and corsets, looking like an ethereal goddess. The eponymous label expands its horizon this couture season by introducing beautiful chikankari lehengas and saris with delicate hand-embroidery – reminiscent of the art adorning the walls of Palace of Versailles, and introducing experimental couture pant suits.
