Couture meets classy elegance as Anjalee and Arjun Kapoor in association with Elizabeth Arden set the tone for the forthcoming festive and bridal season by showcasing their Festive and Bridal Couture collection with actor Pooja Batra and model Lalit Tehlan at a select gathering in the New Delhi.
Commenting on the collection, designer Anjalee and Arjun Kapoor elucidated, “Wedding trousseau is fast shaping up to catch up with the cosmopolitan brides. Keeping this in mind, we have used the silhouettes and fabrics that best flatter the Indian brides. Our couture collection includes bridal lehangas, drape sarees and Victorian sensibilities in very vibrant colours of the season.”
Cultured pearls, dazzling rhinestones, faceted tourmalines, citrines and lapis lazulis follow jewel motifs on their bridal trousseau. Vibrant colours beckon the eye. Crystals and very well cut diamonettes add glitzy chic to every garment. Three dimensional influences add that extra chutzpah. Embroidery with satin lace, crinkled tissue and silk stands add voluminous appeal.
Their haute couture creations for men and women stand out for fine detailing and exquisite craftsmanship. The self-taught designers have an enviable clientele that includes Bollywood stars and social movers and shakers. They have studios in New Delhi, Mumbai, New York and Hong Kong, where they have a studio space at the high-end store Sanskrit. “We had a brilliant response for our couture from the fashionistas in Hong Kong and New York that made us think seriously about expanding internationally.”
Anjalee and Arjun Kapoor also have the distinction of being the only Indian designers to be invited to the prestigious Malibu Foundation for Youth & Families Gala Dinner where they donated their most exquisite creation, a diamond and emerald couture bracelet, for auction. Guests present at the auction included Kenny G, Cindy Crawford, Janet and Martin Sheen, Mark Burnett with actress wife Roma Downey, among others.
They have design headquarters in Noida, spread over 10,000 square feet.
