A little touch of heaven
where imagination flows
the valley in the garden
where the passion flower grows.
Charles M Moore
Look at the gentle fold of her sleeves, see the serenity in the way her anarkali falls. Innocence and maturity, surge and stillness, being and becoming all at once. It is springtime in her heart.
Sue Mue’s Spring-Summer 2018 collection, Shades of Spring, is a poem in thread, an ode to the woman in bloom. Inspired by ancient Chinese wucai or ‘five-coloured’ porcelain, the new collection evokes ancient strokes of artistry, the burst of beautiful flowers, and the assurance of immaculate design.
Springtime casts a spell on poets and painters with its beginning and arriving, its burst of freshness and nature’s ripening – just as it makes its way into the ethereal weaves and embroideries of Sue Mue’s latest collection. With floral motifs and cherry blossom-inspired designs, it features a balance of zari, sequins, aari, gota, metal, dabka and self-detailed work, with the soothing effect of pastel threads.
Sue Mue emphasizes classic silhouettes this season, with lehengas, blouses, kalidar kurtas, anarkalis with shararas, saris, capes and tunics making a graceful presence. Neutral shades of nude, off-white and beige dominate the couture collection, and metallic zardozi, hand paint and little bit of glitter endow a royal elegance. Delicate fabrics such as handloom cotton, linen, sheer organza, georgette, raw silk and tulle give a soft, sensual and potent look.
Like spring, the Sue Mue woman is blossoming. And she is complete.
