Appreciate Layers & Nuances
She says, “As a designer and a new mother, I decided to step back and look at both my work and my wardrobe with a fresh, discerning eye. What was it that I wanted from my clothing? What was missing? What would bring me joy? And I channelled all those answers in my new drop. This is a collection that echoes a new chapter in my life and in my design. As a mother, returning to designing has changed my perspective. If it’s one thing the past few years have taught us all is the integrity of perspective: of examining different points of view, of exploring new directions, of appreciating the layers and nuances. And I wanted to speak to that.”
Hue & Try
Anushka Khanna’s USP is her use of colour and this time around she’s spanned the spectrum— from delicate blush and icy mint, to look-at-me electric hues and evergreen, mysterious black. She plays with trompe l’oeil embellishments, adding luminosity and iridescence through intricate cuts of gota-work; craft and texture through brightly hued, contrast threadwork; and femininity through pearls and the tiniest of sequins.
For the festivities, she forges ahead with her now signature, long, lean jackets, slouchy, insouciant kurtas, structured blazers and waistcoats, and fluid drapes with the classic sari. And this time, she has put the focus on the lehenga – a full skirt that’s meant to be twirled – paired with separates that echo your vibe. Maybe you pair it with a sexy choli or maybe you feel like a bit of an edge – a beautifully cut waistcoat will do that.
Anushka Khanna’s unparalleled attention to detail and her unwavering commitment to craftsmanship is unmistakably evident in every thread, every stitch, and every delicate adornment that adorns this collection. Her mission is to create versatile separates that can be styled and worn in multiple ways.
