Soltee: Dark Gives Balance

Soltee by Sulakshana Monga WIFW AW 2014

‘Dark Gives Balance’ was the title of Soltee by Sulakshana Monga’s show for AW 2014.  A collection that was dominated by nudes, browns and golden tones, the looks that were presented were glamorous and bold.  Including floor sweeping gowns, menswear and flatteringly draped separates, the collection had only good times in mind.

Soltee means relationships in Nepalese and the brand likes to amalgamate rich cultural heritage with contemporary art.

I particularly liked the updated vintage mirror embroideries in some of the styles. It had the perfect amount of nostalgic reference with an injection of contemporary styling.  Although not directly referenced, many of the silhouettes had a Tudors look in the hair accessories, pleating and sleeve and neckline detail.

A fun loving brand that celebrates youthful energy, the last looks were showcased on three new Bollywood hotties.
