Love makes us travel all universes, Love makes the cosmos go around, Love is all.
While living in the middle of a pandemic the only emotion that drives us is love. Gaurav Gupta Couture 2021/22 is a film presentation titled ‘Universal Love’, that expands on the movement that ‘Name is Love’, our previous couture show started - where love transcends beyond definitions and identities; where love is just pure love.
With this couture presentation we strive to bring perception to the dialogue surrounding sexualities, gender fluidity, boundaries and identities because there is always a reason to keep celebrating love in all its forms, ages, sizes, shapes and colours.
Gaurav Gupta Couture 2021/22 is inspired by the Universe. The expanse of the cosmos, the millions of stars, the axis and the movement of all planets; sprinkling and spiralling in infinite loops of time, meteoric showers and racing comets inspire abstract galactic embroideries and silhouettes. The garments exude a sense of expanse and grandeur of the cosmos. All done to strive -perfect harmony and love.
The collection is shamelessly glittering and glamorously star like.
A gown in neptune blue with embroidery strokes that look like comets flying, and the structure having an endless rhythmic quality. A concept lehenga sculpted in cosmic grey, embellished with sprinkles of shaded glass in blue and gunmetal. A hybrid Indian gown in asteroid pink with a large multi layered skirt and rainshower patterned embroidery. A cosmic violet gown with fan-like structures giving a sense of movement and rhythm for a futuristic princess.
The film shot at the ‘Mirror of the Sky’- Taj Faluknama, merges a modern lifestyle with ancient heritage. This architectural gem reflects the passion it was built with, where each element exudes obsession with various global cultures.
Gaurav Gupta Man - even bolder and sexier this year comes in stark black & white, night teal and neptune blue. Lines run across jackets forming new constellations. Sharp metallic accents meticulously sculpted on velvet tuxedos and exaggerated flared trousers give flight to the edit.
