Cosmo India Got The Inside Scoop On Designer Kiran Uttam Ghosh's Upcoming Collection

It's definitely worth waiting for!

So, tell us about your latest collection for AIFW Autumn/Winter 2016.

Well, the collection is called Silver. I've always been inspired by silver, and it appears through the collection in different avatars—from silver filigree work to pieces of silver mirror to opulently rustic, junk-y pieces inspired by Tibetan and central Asian jewelry. So silver appears all through the collection as a versatile metal. And the tone is sometimes white and shiny or high glossy and sleek, even tarnished and rustic silver, where it almost looks like bronze.

What is the colour palette you've worked with?

Obviously we've used silver and silver greys. But we've also ombre yellows along with the teals, blue greens, indigo blues, deep reds, oxblood, and deep charcoal.

You love working with handloom. How have you used it in this collection?

It appears throughout my collection. There are hand-woven kaftans and mini kaftans. But, what works for me is the duality in shape—fluidity juxtaposed with structure. And there's also sheer juxtaposed with opaque fabrics. That's a strong trend for me!

Most Popular

Tell us some key pieces from this collection.

The circular one-sleeved short kaftan in its varied avatars—in net, handloom, Dhakai, and even as a sari blouse. The short angrakha wrap again in sheer vs. opaque and fluidity vs. structured. And of course, accessories like palm bracelets, chokers, and ear-cuffs.

What's your favorite trend this season?

I'm not much of a trend person. But I think we're celebrating excess maximalism all the way. For me that's the essence, we are done with minimalism.

And what are the 'It' colours of the season?

For me it's silver with deep yellows.
