Day 3: Marie Claire presents Gauri and Nainika

Marie Claire, a women-centric fashion footwear brand under the Bata India umbrella, collaborated with the designer duo Gauri & Nainika, to launch their exquisite collection 

 The “Fall 2021” Collection

Inspiration

After spending many months of 2020 in quarantine, Gauri and Nainika were inspired by life in the slow lane, as they enjoyed the many phases of the moon, the setting sun sets, blossoming flowers in their mother’s garden when saplings turned to bud’s and then bloomed into colourful flower beds.

Features

  • Relaxed trapeze silhouettes with stylish frock dresses cinched at the waists with romantic bows. 
  • Floral textures and pretty bows added to the beauty of the creations, while the label’s signature, billowy, ruffles at times angular, big or small.
  • Large rosettes and broad leather belts with giant buckles,to accentuate the waists.

Fabric Story

Wispy organza and sheer chiffon 

Colour Code

Colours of nature came to the forefront, as earthy and sky hues danced in fashionable unison. The cerulean blue was a great combo with grey, while shades of green, intermingled stylishly along with a variety of tones.

Designers’ Take

Commenting on the collaboration, Gauri & Nainika said, “We loved working with the Marie Claire team for the show. Our collaboration has been an integral part of the design process, as both the brands follow a distinctly feminine design philosophy with the inspiration being very Parisienne. You’ll find an abundance of floral prints in the collection- exploding flora on hues of the earth and sky, cerulean blue, grey, green amongst others in our collection. The Marie Claire shoe collection is statement-making and glamorous, yet subtle and timeless, just like the dresses you will find in our line.”
