The collection takes inspiration from the Baroque Era and its majestic artefact: The Chandelier. ‘Capella’ has a lot of motif work, lace details, big tulle skirts, and veils to reflect the opulence of the 17th century.
Eka’s collection combines handcrafted and hand-woven Indian textiles to create a new motif language. It explores block print on handwoven cotton, cotton silk, kota, linen, and blends. And they’ve created brighter colour palettes to match the enthusiasm of the season’s awakening for Lakme Fashion Week Mumbai 2022.
