The collection features Élan’s signature craftsmanship with innovative new techniques, embellishments, motifs, embroideries and unique colour palettes. Intricate, feminine and modern all at the same time, Palais Indochine has something for everyone be it an engagement, wedding or a personal ensemble for one’ trousseau.
Further inspired by Chinoiserie and the Subcontinental vista, Élan’s take on the classic red bridal was embellished with gold tilla and threadwork with an emphasis on subverting traditional motifs and reinterpreting them in a manner that is contemporary yet classic.
The collection takes its inspiration from geometric shapes and textured surfaces interspersed with detailed floral patterns and the ateliers signature bird and nature inspired motifs, incorporating detailed compositions worked in zardozi and resham.
True to the ateliers revivalist ethos of using traditional craft in a contemporary narrative, Alankara introduces modern textures mixed with classic traditional zardozi work across experimental pieces such as intricately worked trench coats, shorter structured jackets and tops and high waited gharara’s.
The collection will also reveal intricately hand crafted shawls or chaddars.
