EDITORIAL

SAMODE

Embroider everything! The most fascinating fashionable update for fall is here to stay for a while. I just hope it doesn’t go too early,  as the cold shoulder and off shoulders.

I used to needlepoint in my high school and still remember few artform from that age haha! What a fun to create beautiful tiny roses and flowers all over the handkerchief, spend hours and hours to make a tiny structure ( Nostalgic already) until the finished result, which usually turns out to become a bird, flower or an aeroplane.

Now that we are in 2017 and i am a grown up woman I don’t do needlepoint anymore.
Surely nostalgia is partly to be blamed for my obsession granny chic aesthetic & dreamscapes of organza gowns with delicate thread work pulled through my wordrobe and peek into the embroidered things I’ve acquired over the years, before i was fully awake to my own obsession drawn towards all things everything embroidered.

It’s about a very real desire to wear and own everything with embroidery, i love things – a lot of things – i just don’t want the same as everybody else has! I am absolutely in love and romanticised with the beautiful flowers on my net skirt designed by Rajdeep Ranawat, it’s more like a nostalgic dream coming true. I think a lot of artisanal discipline is coming back again with such beautiful pieces. We tried to put through some images which we did in a bare jungle with an illusion which doesn’t exist for most of us. This is our first editorial which took us over a week planning to find a perfect mirror and two days consecutively to shoot the final images.

Exploring and capturing the surviving motifs and elegant colour schemes from these, Rajdeep Ranawat brings to you a collection with a fresh take on the vintage wall arts of The Palaces. His collection is an amalgamation of the old design with a twist of the very modern applications.

The collection has been split into multiple themes based on the usage of various motifs and colours and named after the six heritage cities of Rajasthan; that are Kota, Ajmer, Udaipur, Jodhpur, Samode and Jaipur.

Rich silk based fabrics, embellished with genuine crystal from Swarovski compliment the design elegance of The Palace and assist each garment in narrating a story of their own, as they mesmerise you into a time where kings, kingdom and a very colourful culture thrived.

Can i just say, that sharing my thoughts and everything about what i love eternally makes leaves me in joy. The internet can be a magical place ❤️.
