While the entire world is dripping in red and pinks this Valentine’s, break away from the cliched mould with Amit Aggarwal’s Morphe, a range of cocktail dresses.

The collection explores forms constricted in space over a period of time and the possibilities that surface when they are released from their confines. They disperse to mould themselves into new shapes, creating patterns where they collide, intersect and radiate in a style that is distinctive to the brand. The ensembles take shape as they rise from the tension between opposing contrasts. The look, emphasising the underlying architecture found in nature, blends structure with fluidity.

Textures are created with intersecting geometrical patterns and progressions using silk-wool blends, ribbed silks, leather, mesh and tapes. Browns, blacks and dark muted greys form the base colours with red and blue acting as accents is the colour palette used in the collection. Speaking about his brand, designer Amit Aggarwal states, “Morphe is about the metamorphosis of raw influences, both fantastical and mundane, into clothes that are modern, eclectic and that transcend singular fads. Blending forms, shapes, materials and details they make a woman feel beautiful regardless of where she is or the role she is playing,” he says.

He further added, “The products are designed and manufactured with a lot of thought, care and precision. Utilising the best of skilled labour and techniques available locally and merging them with the most progressive of aesthetics, they tend to have a timeless appeal. Making the entire process of making clothes an enjoyable experience and providing a dignified and pleasant environment, for each and every one of the people involved, is one of the core principles of the brand,” he informs. The collection is available at Collage.
