Abraham & Thakore Have A Sharp, Wearable Spring Collection

David Abraham and Rakesh Thakore, the creative minds behind the Abraham & Thakore label and affectionately hailed as the ‘Masters of Minimalism,’ have consistently ventured into innovative paths within Indian fashion. Their latest endeavor focuses on delving into fashion communication, employing various textile mediums and symbols to convey their artistic vision.

Their latest Spring Summer Collection, ‘Body Language: The Punctuation Edit,’ is sharp, wearable, and in conversation with the larger theme of language that the brand has continually explored. “This is a springboard to explore larger ideas such as the connections between humans and nature, and the multiple forms we use to communicate with each other in an increasingly digitized world,” they say.

The definitive characteristic of the off-runway collection is the natural color palette. Shades such as mocha, peanuts, dusty pinks, indigos, and redwood – the color of natural bark – are abundant.

According to Abraham, “The patterns are inspired by interpretations on visual frames, or how space is organized. The emphasis is directed towards stripes, color blocks, and checks, portraying them as essential elements to the punctuation and structural framework employed by language to enhance legibility and coherence.”

And occasionally there is a break from the structure, and in comes a surprise – sometimes in the delightful form of a voluptuous Ottoman tulip.

Thakore added, “This collection commemorates the enduring art of expressing oneself through fashion. We aspire for it to initiate an essential dialogue and surpass the constraints of language.”

Like any other Abraham & Thakore collection, diverse textiles and crafts are at play here. Chettinad checks, Maheshwari borders, Gingham weaves, and delicate embroideries – that mix the machine and the hand – all make an appearance, while ikat is once again, articulated uniquely.

Uniquely, this edit also presents the building blocks of a wardrobe, or the literal basics of clothing. The brand introduces t-shirts, dresses, pants, and other garments that invite people to lay a strong foundation before they delve deep into the endless possibilities of versatile layering.
