Titled, “From Russia, with Love”, the S/R 2015 collection by Neha Agarwal was inspired by the form-fitting fashion of early 1900s Russia, that tells a tale of two cultures, where Russian inspired silhouettes and motifs are fused with Indian fabrics and techniques. Usage of intricate hand-embroidered appliqués on georgette, ahimsa, dupion, pure mal, tussar and pattu silk on Russian inspired artwork are some of the key highlights of this vibrant collection.

Vintage yet modern, global yet ethnic, the designer offered an array of pieces, including dresses and bamboo denim jackets with cape collars, adorned with cross-stitch detailing and floral embroidery; circular dresses with hand block printed motifs, and denim crop tops with printed Russian dolls and flared jumpsuits in pure silk with a denim bodice and embroidered scalloped sleeves.
