5 Colour Palettes That’ll Rule Bridal Couture This Season
At Couture week each one of the designers presented their collections like a charm by pushing forward their own vision over bridal allure. And now the time is ripe to go through all the runway shows with a fine-tooth comb to identify the major shades that are about to make a splash in your traditional wardrobes. Take a closer look at some of our top colours for the festive season that you can now model and go about in looking like a trendsetting star.
The roster of the colour trends this Couture week was led by a plethora of bridal hues, seeing as the shows were aptly dominated by revamped wedding wears. One of the standout hues this season was a sublime sindoor red — the vermillion insignia of marital bliss. The rich red tones were given their due justice through the collections of Rohit Bal, Anita Dongre, Anju Modi and Varun Bahl. Whether you are a bride-to-be or not-yet-to-be, consider this opulent colour to be a mandatory addition to your ethnic wardrobe.
While sindoor reds dominated one end of the bridal spectrum, on the other side, muted yet equally plush mehendi hues made their way onto the runways as well. Whether used on lehenga pieces or some salwar suits, head-turning looks are assured. Many designers took a gamble to include this rich shade in their pieces that seems to be not so easily approachable at first sight, but then we catch Rohit Bal’s and Tarun Tahiliani’s decadently embroidered collection with bursts of lush mehendi green and we can’t help but be inspired.
Pastels were romanticised on the Couture runways this season in a swarm of rose quartz resembling shades — the collections proved that pastels aren’t only meant for the warmer seasons, you can easily wear them during the festive season as well putting those obvious jewel toned to some required resting. Definitely one of the most delicate colour trends; touches of baby pink, light peach and pale pink appeared on the runways in abundance, but we especially liked the way those were translated into festive creations by Rahul Mishra, Varun Bahl, Tarun Tahiliani and Anju Modi.
Bursts of Blue
The Blue dynasty was reigning throughout most of the fashion shows playing with all its possible shades and exploring all the avenues ranging from icy blue to cobalt and midnight blues. The hues had a strong sense of allure along with a shot of sophistication. Among the lot, Reynu Tandon seemed to be head over heels in love with blue hues — her pieces ranged from bluish green hues to cerulean and even some teal. While Manish Malhotra and Anita Dongre explored the regal potential of midnight blue.
Champagne and Ivory
The colour trends had frosted dashes to them with ivory being a prominent starting point with most of the designers that slowly transitioned into an almost iridescent champagne shade. At Anita Dongre the champagne set looked resplendent in the metallic hue. While Manish Malhotra and Rina Dhaka explored the potential of shimmery ivory tones. Black and beige may be the western wear equivalent of neutrals but when it comes to ethnic pieces, ivory and champagne shades are the best palette cleanser your closets could use to include.
