Bring out the Goddess in you this Spring Summer 2020, with drapes and silhouettes like never before!
With a new take on drapes, Spring-Summer 2020 added more power to femininity. The question of the season, what if women were our saviours, was resonated across all ramps and runways. Maria Grazia Chiuri deserves special mention for her Spring 2020 Couture show, that blew everyone away. And bringing the Goddesses down to Earth and walking the ramps. Morphing the ramp in a womb-like shape, Dior was all set to blaze it up. With a wall hanging that said – What If Women Ruled the World, the air called out femininity all across. In draped metallic patterns, cut fringes, braided ropes and Roman sandals, the ramps were clearly all about the Goddesses. And we couldn’t agree more.
Dreamy. Determined. Dauntless
Although drapes have been a constant part of the ramps, this season the focus lies with sculptural drapes. Dating back as far as 3500 BC, the draping technique began with the Mesopotamians and Ancient Egyptians. The style became immortal when the Greeks and Ancient Romans adopted this dressing style. Various sculptures made by Michaelangelo, Raphael and Leonardo da Vinci include life-like drapings that can make anyone gawk!
Spring summer 2020 takes inspiration from the era of drapes, comfort and Goddess-like attires to showcase the saviour of the world. While Oscar de la Renta took the dream route with flowy gowns, drapes and pastel shades, there was Sies Marjan with a more modern take on drapes and silhouettes. Proenza Schouler too included tight pleats in a more fitting format. Meanwhile, Richard Malone’s ramp added patchwork pleats flowing in different directions. And as Vogue called it, J W Anderson was all about showcasing the sibyls of the future in a draped format.
While Burberry took the drapes to the sleeves, Hussein Chalayan added drapes as a feature to more practical silhouettes. Another highlight of the season was Elie Saab’s collection. Adding metal bands that remind us of all things Roman, he created a range in pastels with scrunched cloth belts and floor-sweeping gowns, that was nothing short of mesmerizing.
Celebs & Greek Drapes
Think Sparta Goddess or even the Daenerys kind, it’s all about the saviour savoir-faire this season. With the red carpet lying out for the Awards season, there was a complete washout with dreamy drapes in tow. From Charlize Theron, Michelle Williams to Lili Reinhart, there was a Goddess outfit all set to accept her award. On the homefront too, celebrities of the likes of Priyanka Chopra, Deepika Padukone, Alia Bhatt, Kareena Kapoor and Malaika Arora, were taking the front seat for the show.
