"ELEMENTS" - Spring 2023
FEBRAURY 2023: ‘Elements’ are an essential or characteristic part of something abstract, yet so integral to complete a visual, a thought process or even an entire system. Couturier Seema Gujral starts the year with a brand new, dynamic collection aptly called, ‘Elements’. The collection features the trend of the season, a play on classic neutrals and a signature tone, ivory. Inspired by a myriad of emotions, the joy of celebration, the anticipation of a new beginning and a myriad of seasons, the palette is a homage to all these factors. Hues taken from summer, from autumn and spring for a gentle burst of colour and with delicate tones of ivory that denote a sense of calm, this collection is a perfect way to start a year of beautiful couture. With a sophisticated neutral palette and the glow of ivory silvers and gold, each ensemble has the signature finish of a Seema Gujral outfit.
The highlight of this eclectic collection is a focus on intricate thread embroidery along with a Seema Gujral staple, delicate pearls and sequins used for handcrafted embroideries. The collection includes, elegant bundi sets, regal bandhgalas, open jackets and sherwanis paired with straight pants, jodhpur pants, afghani salwars in the menswear showcase. Within menswear the endeavour is to showcase pieces that are high on wearability factor along with statement embroideries that stand out. For women, the silhouettes remain classic with a deep sense of femininity. Some of the skirts feature exaggerated flare, tasselled blouses and heavily embroidered dupattas that complete each ensemble. ‘Elements’ is a collection that denotes the beginning, the beginning of a new year, a new season and a new reason to celebrate.
