URBAN SHIKAR

editorial@stylekandy.com| Posted On: 26-March-2014

This season Abraham & Thakore looks at sleek uniform dressing for the city. A collection based on the urban shikar, where the streets of a city are the terrain, a smartphone the defense. Shaped by a palette based on the golden hues of wild silk, the collection evokes the many shades of khaki with its references to safari, uniforms and combat.
 

Wild silk provides the canvas for the Autumn Winter 2014 collection. Along with the classic fabrics and textures of tussar, muga and eri silk, we have taken tussar and other wild silk yarns to weavers all over India in the past few months to explore different techniques from different regions.

Wild silk: In India, Muga, Tussar and Eri are fabrics woven from wild silk. Unlike cultivated silks, here the silkworm lives wild in the forest and produces a yarn which creates the characteristic texture and golden sheen. In the case of Eri silk, the silkworm is not killed but allowed to escape the cocoon, creating the enchanting concept of “Ahimsa silk”.
 

Twinings, a favorite of tea connoisseurs, chose to partner with A&T given their strive for perfection, quality and evolved craftsmanship. The designer duo are renowned for having a strong respect for material, form and craft used to create designers that are rich in traditional vocabulary.
 

One of the pioneering companies to introduce tea drinking to the British when Thomas Twinings began selling tea from his first premises at the Strand, London in 1706. Twinings equity and heritage has retained the tea connoisseurs’ loyalty for more than 300 years and continues to enjoy the reputation of setting cult standards in the art of tea blending.
