Shivan & Narresh Cruise Resort'13 at WIFW

Taking inspiration from the Naïve art form of French Post-Impressionist artist, Henri Julien Félix Rousseau’s “Boy on the Rocks”, the designer duo, Shivan & Narresh presented a collection that beautifully echoed Nicholas Pioch’s comments on the painting, “Only a child can so bestride the world with such ease, and only a childlike artist with a simple, naïve vision can understand this elevation and make us see it as dauntingly true."

Keeping the non pretentious (READ: Naïve)  essence of the inspiration alive, Shivan and Narresh’s offering had the simplicity of a child that was artfully presented by merging distorted expressions on clothes, by experimenting with multi layer of undefined vibrant colours with fluorescent and the neon and unconventional cuts , the lines and the quirky prints.

Shift with unconventional ringed sleeves, sketch pen printed bandeau, maillot with quirky prints, pencil skirts, jacket and the signature bikini sari were some of the key pieces of this statement collection. 

The collection was indeed a perspective – that explored the territory of a childlike innocence and naïve vision, shrouded by a bit of mystery.
