On the second day of Lakme Fashion Week, Sameer Madan revealed his collection titled ‘Untamed: The Wild Thing’.
March 16, 2023: An ingenious and creative designer, Sameer Madan presented his Summer Cruise ’23 collection, called ‘Untamed: The Wild Thing’, at Lakmé Fashion Week. The aesthetics of the brand are deeply rooted in nurturing art with faux leather. Keeping this core intact, the new collection strives to create a stronger bond with its patrons.
About the collection, Mr. Madan said, “I am thrilled to have showcased this season at Lakmé Fashion Week x FDCI! Untamed, as a collection, is more powerful and bold, and it was heartwarming and encouraging to witness the reaction and feedback on it. For us, everything this season was about ‘emotion’ and how you express yourself by means of your attire.”
The Delhi based designer was inspired by the elegance and grandeur of the Italian icon, Monica Bellucci, and was determined to create a fashion line that exudes her innate sense of vigor and style. The influence could be seen as the designer opened the show with a reenacted iconic scene from Ms. Bellucci’s movie, and showed a transition from reel to real on the ramp.
The silhouettes directed to a more modern power dressing with bodycon dresses, bodysuits, jumpsuits, corsets, trousers, miniskirts and pencil skirts. The collection had newer textiles and prints, bountiful interpretation of leopard print as well as solid statement pieces.
Plunge and broad neckline, cinched waist, shoulder pads and formal coats had quite an interesting presence. A splendid synthesis of faux leather with latex, jersey, luxury satin, mesh, luxury cotton, shimmer lycra fabric, sequins, and tulle was also seen. Sophisticated yet bold, more than 60 pieces collection are presented in the range of black, white, red and lighter hues of silver and pink.
Leather applique, hand tossed organza fringes and ruffling are some of the techniques that elevates the grace and elegance of the collection. Through the ensembles, the designer has successfully showcased the glam and sensual appeal of 1980s and 90s.
