KARACHI: The acclaimed couturier Adnan Pardesy showcased his eponymous label’s latest collection “Labyrinth” on November 26 at Fashion Pakistan Week 2014, says a press release issued on Thursday.
The collection came across as a display of weaving techniques dominated by monochromatic whites, ivories and blacks.
For “Labyrinth”, Adnan Pardesy took inspiration from psychedelic patterns and weaves along with Japanese weave structures, Chinese floral patterns, forest abstracts, Kalamkaari, Japanese Geisha, Greek temple landscape imagery, African tribal motifs, stencil technique tattoos, contemporary art with abstract imagery and Islamic pattern compositions.
“Labyrinth” featured well-structured tapered jackets, simple clean lines, graphic details, intricate hand embroidery with fabric manipulation and labyrinthine fabric twists and drapes. The collection is based on luxe fabrics including silks, crepes, chiffons, charmeuse silk and net. Footwear for the brand showcase was provided by Nine West. Going forward the brand also plans to launch a diffusion line range from within the Labyrinth collection, which will allow patrons of the brand the opportunity to wear a more practical version of the collection seen on the runway, materializing the concept of “From Ramp to Racks”.
