431-88 AW 14


CRACKED | AUTUMN WINTER 2014
“There is a crack in everything. That’s how the light gets in”
-Leonard Cohen 

431-88 by Shweta Kapur was started in 2012 with the idea of bringing sportswear inspired classy and luxurious RTW in Indian Fashion Industry. Shweta, who has worked with Fashion houses like Burberry Prosum and Abu Jani & Sandeep Khosla, presented a very autumn-winter collection on the 4th day of Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week.

She took inspiration from the art of Kintsugi the Japanese techinique of filling gold in the cracks of broken pottery and went further to develop a collection with minimal but highly impeccable details.
The minimal look of white dress was empowered with a strong yet clean Faux Fur Jacket. The collection went further with interplay of style lines and seams in the jackets and had some very interesting fur details on the sleeves and the shoulders. Dresses with slits on waist, asymmetric hem and neck line, and princess variations too strongly added to the detail factor of the collection. The color story went heavily on black with a touch of white and navy blue.

Thank You!
