The Game of Chess-
The theme for this Summer Resort collection erupts from a black and white checkered floorboard essentially referring to the ‘game of chess’. Hence, there will be a collection of garments displaying the veracity behind this world renowned game - its rolling up’s and downs and the quintessential requirement of spontaneity to be able to play it.
As each player begins the game with sixteen pieces in the gradation of pawns, bishops, knights, rooks and the king and queen respectively. There would be a sequential display of 32 garments with two sets of eight ensembles each as ready-to-wear prêt depicting pawns; one set in tints of whites and the other being in black.
There will be merging hue of black and white while climbing the hierarchy and going towards the kings and queens lending the garments an avant-garde feel and making them look more and more creative with maximum ingenuity accorded to the two sets of ‘kings’ and ‘queens’ in relatively black and white tints and tones.
The fabrics range would thus vary from cottons, and silks, organza to satins and chiffons.
