Sriyaa's festive collection is dreamy and romantic
SHADES of red, green, orange, pink and more in soft and warm hues, coupled with trendy cuts, and meticulous thread and zari work, is what Sriyaa’s Winter Festive collection is all about. Sriyaa, a designer apparel brand owned by Manish Sultania, was started in 2015. The in-house designers create stunning pieces of long frock, maxi dress, gowns, long skirts and tops, and kurtis in solid colours with an ethnic touch, making them ideal festive wear. Rohit Bajaj, COO of the 3200 sq ft store in Park Street offers, “Our collection is meant for the festive season. It’s more for the bridesmaids than the brides. It’s muted and classy. The fabrics are comfortable and we customise designs according to size.”
Frills and flair
The bell sleeves, frills and ruffled hems that have been used liberally in the collection add more style and volume to the clothes. The soft and flowy georgette and even chanderi silk work well for the patterns. An asymmetric top in aqua colour, with a sharp high-low cut, teamed with a silk frill skirt in a rich shade of turquoise, stood out for its combination. For those who love voluminous skirts, stylish cancans are a great option. Similar skirt top combinations are also available. The ruffled skirts will enhance your ghoomar moves at any mehendi or sangeet party. Also, the collection of peplum tops looks very smart. A black piece with pink-and-white floral embroidery with a four-inch sachet cum dupatta, in particular, looks exquisite. For an option, a cold shoulder top in chanderi silk is also in tune with the latest style trends.
Some dresses are also available with long jackets in georgette. You also have detachable jackets in smart silhouettes. For instance, an olive green long dress
in chanderi silk, with a 10-inch frill at the hem in georgette and mini polka dots, is quite attractive. The jacket along with the dress has the same frill at the hem, leading to a dual frill feeling. The conical latkans (hangings) attached to the jackets add to the look. What’s more, the detailing is balanced really well throughout. The embroidery or zari work is generally restricted to the upper half of the body, or the top, with miniature motifs of flowers and leaves. Also, the minimal patchworks in some dresses lends a pleasant break from the detailing.
