Hotly anticipated; Uttam London, renowned for its distinctive prints and unique designs, does not disappoint with its Autumn/Winter collection. Four Key trends emerge triumphant this season, utilising in-house designed prints of brushstrokes, butterflies, and distinct creations using floral paisley and geometric elements cleverly combined across the trends.
1940’s Nostalgia is re-ignited with a collection of timeless dresses all intricately finished with traditional and understated hand embellishments, which denote Uttam’s signature style. Re-interpreting the silhouettes of this forgotten era, dresses and coats with neat waist proportions become statement items in this stylish nod to pre-war fashions.
Focusing on ancient Greece for inspiration, ‘Grecian Goddess’ combines draped knitwear with more structured and intricate pieces to dramatic effect. These modern neo-classic interpretations feature multiple layering accentuated with antique gold embroidery and accessories. Set against a contemporary background incorporating shades of gunmetal grey, onyx black and winter berry; this Grecian goddess leaps forward to the 21st Century.
‘Eastern Promise’ brings elements of the Orient to this range through its use of cerulean jade silk crepe, delicate floral and butterfly prints and modern interpretations of antique kimono shapes. Texture is utilised throughout the collection to add depth and subtle interest whilst the considered use of print combined with modern silhouettes create truly original garments.
Concluding the stories is ‘Art Deco’, a true homage to the 1920’s. The juxtaposition of beautiful and simple clean lines against the architectural inspired structured detailing add a modern twist to this evening inspired collection. Geometric prints add definite interest whilst the vintage inspired accessories provoke an individual look.
