Rohit Bal is all set to launch his label ‘Balance’, a first-of -its-kind prêt offering from the designer. Defining a fine symmetry between haute couture and prêt a porter, this new line of easy to wear silhouettes is a perfect testimony of his signature designs, at not-to-be missed prices. This ready-to-wear collection, catering to both men and women will be available only on Exclusively.com.
Recognized for his meticulous attention to detail, Bal draws influences from the obvious as well as the esoteric – sometimes it’s the village crafts and traditional Indian handlooms, other times it’s the ephemeral influence of history merged with fantasy. Renowned for his flamboyant flair both on the runway as well as off it, Bal has increasingly adopted a simpler, more elegant aesthetic in all his work and this is evident in the chic minimalism one sees in ‘Balance’.
Drawing inspiration from history, fantasy and folklore, Rohit Bal’s designs emphasize on the marriage of traditional Indian crafts and contemporary silhouettes. Crafted on the canvas of fine handlooms and scripted with thread embroideries, with hints of fine block prints, these silhouettes creatively reflect the timeless heritage of India. The color palette spans from richer hues of orange, fuchsia, blue, brick reds to softer shades of ivory. With this line, he continues to explore his fascination for ivory. Saying that, one can’t miss the beautiful interpretation of Mughal inspired motifs and floral prints that will certainly add air of freshness to your closet.
One of the first Indian designers to use traditional craftsmanship not just for aesthetic appeal, but also to add glamour to his designs, Bal has always been ahead of his times. ‘Balance’ is yet another forward-looking move by the designer.
