Presenting their Fall 2016 line, Pranav Mishra, and Shyma Shetty made a hard hitting fashion declaration with their label Huemn at Lakmé Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2016 (March 30). Creating a stylish rebellion on the ramp, the collection had eccentric touches that included a hint of raw sensuality.
The duo’s clever mix of textures and layers was the highlight of the gangster inspired retro line of mix and match separates with a contemporary feel. Bringing a hint of sporty chic, the 100 percent handmade textures were inspired and resembled animal and reptile skins, as luxe silk, velvet leather, and faux fur gave the ensembles an arresting appeal.
Ultra-fashionable Tees, lots of zippered blousons, biker jackets, shimmering satin shirts, velvet suits for the glam look and sporty coordinates were part of the eye-catching line. The colour palette matched the richness of the fabrics as shades of oxblood, deep rust, glowing emerald, sparkling silver grey, merged artistically with ever popular neutral black. Detailing revolved around floor kissing sleeves, tie-ups and drawstrings, which appeared on the waist, hemlines and assorted parts of the garments.
Motifs that were truly eye-catching were the furry gorilla faces on the sweatshirts and the coiled snake embroidery on tops.
The unisex look of the collection had a marked mix-and-match feel for casual comfort. But the solitary black sequinned ‘V’ neck top and velvet skirt presented a welcome formal look.
When it comes to evoking an old world charm in the fashion that flirts seductively with tough stylish men’s and women’s wear, then Pranav Mishra and Shyma Shetty offered the perfect options with their neo-retro Huemn collection.
