Outhouse Jewellery showcases eccentric designs at Lakme Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2014

Known for their unconventional jewellery designs, Kaabia and Sasha Grewal for their label “Outhouse” presented their stunning collection called “The Column” at Lakme Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2014. Lustrous gold was entwined into magical pieces that were influenced by the regal look of Greece and Rome. Playing imaginatively with gold, the designer duo proved that the precious metal was versatile enough to be draped like liquid silk or moulded firmly.

They were inspired by Proto-geometric art and linear meanders to present a more basic but bold collection. Adding to the beauty of the jewellery were semi-precious stones like amber, turquoise, pearls, garnets and lapis lazuli to create glitz and glamour.

They gave the Maang Tikka a New Age feel but with  a Mohawk- like design that rose in curves on the heads of the models, while the earrings flared up to reach the hair turning into large lacy covers. Chokers cascaded down the necks of the models with a line of interlinked pendants or were clasped around the necks with multiple layers.  Belt-cum-shoulder or body harnesses, ornate cropped gloves, windmill inspired ear cuffs, leather/tassel shoulder dusters, cross body leather/gold belt, and spikes erupted from neckpieces. Towering looped Maang Tikka, Haath Phool, facial décor garter-cum- harness and finger cuffs turned ordinary jewellery categories into conversation stoppers.

Opulence was the apt word to describe the jewellery as spiked bangles, looped and tasselled necklaces, shoulder ornaments and neckpieces had intricate attachments while armlets as well as enticing danglers for the ears stole the limelight. The striking ensembles were courtesy JV by Jatin Varma who added his geometric touches to balance the grand ornaments.

I liked their eccentric designs and a warrior goddess look. Single statement pieces can be worn to create furore at any event. Did you like it? Leave a comment below.
