Sahil Kochhar’s collection, Rooh is an ensemble of  innumerable mystical, mythological and mythical tales

The Spring/Summer 2018 collection titled, Rooh (soul) draws its inspiration from the Soul of the Jungle. “The Jungles of India have since forever been my object of curiosity and have had innumerable mystical, mythological and mythical tales attached to it,” shared Kochhar.

For the designer, the mystique of the jungle is translated into their signature artworks, which are brought to life by their unconventional textures and surfaces. “Jungle silhouettes are rendered in Ivory applique on translucent organza, exotic wild flowers come alive with silk floss 3D embroidery ivory f-land cut 3D applique creates surreal foliage right out of an enchanted forest.”

Talking about the colour palette he said, “it’s a pristine ivory, carefully combined with champagne rose and Cashmere blue speckled with ivory dots. The silhouettes have a romantic and ethereal presence, exuding femininity with a hint of androgyny.

“Also the combination of fabrics create a subtle play of opaque and translucent, with voluminous paneled chanderi and organza jackets worn over appliqued dresses, translucent gowns and tops with scalloped hems ornamented with silk floss embroidery and ivory grids created with dots and flowers, all finished with our signature serrated edging.”

This collection like all his other works symbolises the beauty that surrounds us. Its our constant endeavor to explore these horizons and in the process create beautiful works of art through our craft.
