There exists a sense of perception that readily conceives and understands beyond the limitations of the five senses. Harnessing this power is Yavi’s spring summer collection, Second Sight. Indulging in the use of intricate methodology, Second Sight makes use of one thread embroidery, handwork with beads, recycled polyesters, Jamdani, and patchwork thus keeping alive and celebrating some of our traditional techniques.
This season, the brand dabbles with the Jamdani technique incorporating it seamlessly with playful brush strokes, flowers and foliage. They have further introduced statement pleats in vibrant solids from recycled polyester ensuring comfort with style for the wearer. The one thread embroidery technique brings to life the flowers and foliage of spring. Embroidered with overlapping threads to achieve a rich layered texture along with playful patterns, the garments’ playful colour palette soothes the senses. Along with their signature impressionist prints, the Yavi pile technique tells a story of many a loop in vivid colours frolicking on romantic organza. A pile is a raised surface or nap of a fabric consisting of strands of yarn. Also applauding the rich crafts community found in the country, this collection shows off intricate hand embroidery using beads to create three dimension subtle landscapes. Staying true to their core, upcycling remains a vital part of their designs through the patchwork technique.
Shot in a greenhouse with a greenscreen and the visuals represent surreal landscapes and spaces where the room apeears to be afloat. The idea was to focus on the 3D embroidery which was a new take on the 2D prints that Yavi is known for. Talking about the kaleidoscopic collection founder, Yadvi Agarwal, adds "The colours for the season are fresh pastels for a happy and light feeling, the garments provide utmost comfort while lounging in or stepping out. The idea is to re-explore the world with fresh vibes"
