Meher & Riddhima: Old Hollywood glamour
Just months ago, Gossip Girl reigned over television as the it show to watch. But for taking its Summer break, GG may have lost its haute status as Mad Men took over the sartorial radar. If you take an overall look at the fashion horizon these days, all you’re going to see is Mad Men this, classic that. Everyone wants a good trek down memory lane, it seems.
But if Mad Men is all about the 60s, then UAE-based Meher & Riddhima are taking us further back in time with their soon-to-be-unveiled Autumn/Winter 2010-2011 collection in September.
The GCC’s most commercially successful luxury womenswear label recaptures a bygone era of elegant dressing, with a 1920s inspired collection aptly titled ‘Hollywood Princess’.
Impressing upon the wearer a renewed sense of occasion, ‘Hollywood Princess’ features flowing chiffons, opulent silks and graceful georgettes, fashioned into evening dresses, cocktail dresses, tops and jalabiyas.
A usually flamboyant Meher & Riddhima palette is, this season, replaced by sultry hues of mauve, burgundy and crimson offset by shades of bottle-green, deep ocean blues and concentrated purples – the intensity of which are only further enhanced through extensive use of black and gold.
In signature style, drapery prevails throughout Meher & Riddhima’s ‘Hollywood Princess’ collection, adding drama to an otherwise elegant silhouette. And, as has come to be expected of the brand, Meher & Riddhima’s Autumn/Winter 2010 collection is laden with detailing, from dramatic bows and tassels to traditional Meenakari beads, embedded with Swarovski crystals.
The new collection will debut at an exclusive event at Boutique 1, Mirdiff City Centre on September 22nd. Work your networking finesse now to get your own invite to the show!
Meher & Riddhima is stocked at Boutique 1 and Bloomingdales.
