With a design philosophy that plays on the best of Indian aesthetics in a very global avatar, Rahul and Anushka’s Rahul Anand and Anushka Laul broke into the fashion connoisseur’s consciousness in 2009. Gradually making a mark in the arena of highly creative and classy pret wear, the duo craft women’s wear that is a unique blend of classical aesthetics and international appeal. Fashion, while being a way of life should also be enjoyed by every woman. This belief makes Rahul Anand, an alumnus of NIFT Delhi and Anushka Laul, a Pearl Academy graduate, create unique apparel that carry the leitmotif of their vibrant design language. Working on fluidity of fabrics with an added focus on craftsmanship, each creation bears the mark of style, perfection and clarity. A much favoured label by some of the top celebrities in Bollywood, the aim of the designers, who have flagship stores in Mumbai and Delhi, is to design for the woman of the world. The SS’20 Collection: A woman is the full circle. Within her is the power to create, nurture and transform. Woman is power. Woman is compassion.Woman is balance. She is Jan’ni, Amba and Jagdamba. Balancing love, compassion yet ruling the world with a strong hand, the empowered woman is the inspiration behind Rahul and Anushka’s SS’20 collection. A sartorial story of the karghaa that spun many a glorious tale of grit and fortitude, ending at kamyaabi or the seat of success where women find themselves today. The design vocabulary delves into how each thread from the loom reaches its rightful place in a creation that is donned by a power woman. She owns the creation, making each thread become a part of her climb to the top. Handwoven fabrics from Jharkhand have been crafted to form silhouettes that are global in charm and character. Embellished by subtle hand embroidery borrowing from aesthetics and sensibilities intrinsic to tribal arts and crafts of the land. Think smart drapes and unique separates for the quintessential Indian woman who is not restricted by size, shape or complexion. Steeped in the culture and workmanship of the land, the garment ultimately evokes a high sense of pride and consciousness for the crafts heritage of our land. Power dressing that is artistic and rich. Sticking to their penchant for fluid fashion, this collection explores interesting drapes using handloom fabric through contemporary saris, angrakhas, layered kurtas and tie-up pants in the hues of black, rustic silver, earthy yellow and blood red. Each piece is a one-off experience in inclusive fashion using indigenous art. Made in a size that fits all, every creation is like second skin as it languidly falls over the body.
