WIFW A/W'12 Vineet Bahl

‘Caravan’, Vineet’s AW 12 collection celebrates the world traveler. Vintage Romanian shawls & antique Sardinian embroideries lend themselves to no-fuss silhouettes of the 60’s.
Perhaps a black canvas was the starting point: Vineet began designing on all black form quite analogous to how an artist would paint on a bare canvas. The effect was profound when he brought together his signature prints and embroidery techniques on such a canvas.
Silhouettes are comprehensible with streamlined tunics, dresses, a lined skirts and wide-leg pants. Neon accents in Kantha form a significant part of the collection while elsewhere, intricate stone work done on brocade brings about bijou-like semblance.
