siyāh, the Fall/ Winter 2015 Collection by AM:PM delves into the spellbinding world of Islamic crafts and architechture. Be it the exquisite carvings that once framed a poetic mehfil, or the intricate jaalis that held the secret embrace of lovers, Ankur & Priyanka Modi found surreal beauty in the expansive heart of India.
Intricate motifs and patterns have been painstakingly distilledfrom the elegant ivory inlay handcrafted on beautiful black sheesham, the collection elaborately embibes this fascinating art found in the remote Hoshiarpur of Punjab.
Luxurious fabrics such as silk, organza and satin meet Mughal romance through fluidic silhouettes of draped long tunics, anarkali jackets, layered skirts and nazakat dhotis. The heritage embroidery craft form of mukaish has also been delicately entwined through this Black & White collection.
Even upon evoking a rich silver seduction from that era, AM:PM continues to let its women remain discreet yet establish their presence through inherent elegance and mystique.
