Sue Mue’s Autumn-Winter 2017 Collection Ariella – The Fearless One

As for the moon, so for the sun: from both

She draws her power; moon pearls grace her mouth,

Solar fire crimsons her lips, and yet

She’s unambiguous when her heart is set

The 11th century was a time of glory for the Al-Andalus region in Spain, a time when the stunning monument Alhambra was built, a time when the legendary poet Ibn Quzman wrote this ode to the Andalusian heroine. A woman like no other. A woman who lives on today.

She is noble and fierce. Her spirit roars with pride. She is Ariella – the fearless one.

Inspired by the majestic Alhambra in Granada, Spain, Sue Mue’s Autumn-Winter 2017/18 collection Ariella is steeped in art and history. The silhouettes are exquisitely Indian at heart and yet have a cosmopolitan spirit.

The collection includes lehengas, saris, anarkalis, kaftans and kurtas paired with shararas, slim-fit pants and palazzos. Materials such as raw silk, velvet, georgette, handloom cotton and crepe are highlighted with zardozi, aari work, dabka, mukaish and French knots.

The ensembles are designed to bring together feminine grace with an intrepid streak of adventure.

Mohita Gujral, director of Sue Mue, conceptualized the collection after her visit to the Alhambra. “Its imposing structure and intricate details were the inspiration behind the Ariella collection, which is designed for the woman who is proud of her heritage, and undaunted in the face of challenges,” she says.

Mahima Gujral, brand head for Sue Mue, adds, “Today’s globe-trotter needs something that is true to her traditional sensibilities while also fitting in with an international lifestyle and modern worldview. The Ariella collection appeals to both those sides of the contemporary Indian woman.”

With floral patterns inspired by the gardens of Generalife and prints that evoke medieval mosaics, the hues of deep mustard, royal blue, pearly white and sandy beige reflect the Spanish landscape and the fascination of Granada.

Confident, vibrant and full of character, the Ariella Autumn-Winter 2017 collection is for the woman who knows her mind and is unafraid to explore new worlds. Her adventures begin in her own heart.
