Dev r Nil’s "Breaking Free" Collection sets new trends at WIFW SS 2014

It was high time for designer Dev r Nil, when he proudly presented his latest collection on the second day of ongoing Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2014 leaving the spectators stunned.

The collection entitled  ‘Breaking Free’ was created by the designers especially for women who loves a sense of freedom in their wearing. The collection included - silhouettes, saris, jackets and palazzos.

Ikkats weaves were constructed inspired from the Emperor butterfly colour scheme and embroidered doilies which were converted to prints where the flow of print to embroidery became fluid to create the  interesting mesh of textures.

In keeping with the classics the silhouettes were an interesting mix of fluid and structures. Cropped tops  or jackets with fluid printed skirts or palazzos, sarees with bolero jackets and classic cut jackets and bandhgala waistcoats for men.  

The colour palette in the collection moved away from the obvious serene to the unpredictable. The collection threw up pop colours like coral, burnt yellows, mints and nudes underplayed by black, slate and greys.


“The collection is an ode to the vintage. The power of 60s n 70s that still hypnotizes us as we want to break free from the clichés and the censorship of the modern times.  Flower power and the art movement inspired us to create a textured neo feminine mod collection. The power of the mind and the vulnerability of the heart get reflected in this bold yet feminine line,” said Dev r Nil.
