Suede, the newly-launched fashion store offered a sneak peek into its Spring/ Summer 2013 Collection put together by Mohammed Anaikar recently at Taj Coromandel.

From timeless ethnic influences to elegant Western styles, the range presented at the ramp show choreographed by style guru Prasad Bidappa, smacked of variety and versatility. The Classic Collection featured showstopping gowns in lush fabrics embellished with delicate craftsmanship. Dresses and ensembles came in a wide range of fabrics, colours and silhouettes.

The styling was global in its appeal. The Contemporary Ethnic Wear line had experimental garments that worked well when teamed imaginatively — think chic tunics and metallic trousers! The colour palette ranged from pristine whites and pretty pastels to rich turquoise and pleasing pinks.

For men too Suede had some stylish options.

The ramp show featured a slew of ace models including Indrani Das Gupta. Miss India Kanishtha Dhankar grabbed eyeballs in an exquisite lace dress.

Besides its off-the-rack garments, Suede, the highend designer label also offers customised clothing for individuals who wish to restyle or revamp their wardrobe.

The store is located at 3A Rutland Gate, Second Street, Khader Nawaz Khan Road, Nungambakkam.
