Bibhu Mohapatra’s fall 2013 collection unveiled at the New York Fashion Week focused on revamping the elegance of the 1930s, however through a more modern approach to style, a vision sparked by the modernistic photographs of Man Ray.
The designer’s signature geometrical patterns and prints didn’t fail to deliver their high visual impact as they were given a leading role in construction of the vintage inspired designs that seemed to target both day and eveningwear and the result was simply beyond our expectations. Vintage yet totally chic, the array of gorgeously constructed garments that made their way down the podium exuded a 30s vibe but with plenty more attitude as the designer admitted that he didn’t want ‘just a straightforward Thirties silhouette’ for his Bibhu Mohaparta fall 2013 collection, but wished to transpose that chicness through a modern eye and he managed to do so seemingly effortlessly!
The fashion label’s New York Fashion Week collection made its debut with daywear designs which included geometrical print and mix fabrics coats, midi dresses, high waist pencil skirt separates, wide leg trousers, fur vests and maxi dresses all mixed and matched to perfection. The structural garments were brought to displayed quite a high level of sexiness through the introduction of plunging decolletages, cuts that exposed the shoulders, draping effects, corsets and belts that cinched the waist to underline the silhouette, details which clearly reveal the lineup’s modern inclination towards style.
Evening designs were brought to the audience’s attention through the use of soft lines and delicate fabrics displaying fringed details, paillette applications, metallic, chiffon and tulle insertions as well as draping details that felt oh-so-romantic. To maintain the elegant tone, soft graphic lines were either printed on the fabrics or created using layering, so if you’re ready to be swept off your feet by the beauty of fashion check out Bibhu Mohapatra’s fall 2013 collection and draw inspiration for your new season iconic style!
