There are few moments in fashion when a uniform awe and revery in the beauty of a designer’s collection is actually palpable throughout the audience, which was certainly the case at Bibhu Mohapatra during his spring/summer 2015 collection.
Each look was virtually exclusive unto itself yet cohesive in the styling and circular pattern that pervaded the lineup in a graph-like formation. Digitized and adorned with crystal embroidery, floral prints have never felt more avant garde, with an ode to the inspiration via some 40s styling to allude to the writer, activist, and shipping heiress Nancy Cunard. Highly wearable ans sure to be sought after come spring, the color palette felt both fresh and practical, utilizing hues and combinations of them in shades described as onyx, bleached, ivory, rosewater, blush, peony, and cloud.
The collection veered slightly in a sportswear direction with some separates and bouncy knit options, however what Mohapatra does best is evening wear, with a well-edited selection of the breath taking gowns concluding the show that surely did not disappoint.
