Palam Silks has always been walking the lane of contemporary weaves. True to our motto, we have walked the talk and adorned the reputation of being the most stylish Kanjeevaram brand from South India. This year is no different. Keeping in par with the times, where the future has become largely unpredictable, we have ventured into an unknown territory, yet again with the hope of creating a sensational collection for this season.
We turned into a Seeker as we explore several nooks and corners of the finest design palettes. The collection projects traditional Annam damask, floral Alpana drawings, Mandalas expressing their fierce versatility, metallic filigree motifs inspired from crystal jewellery, Spanish floor art and medieval Victorian ornamental handwork. Unlike taking a grassland with trees paving a way, we have explored roads untraveled and found inspiration in world art
Seeker has been different, way different than what we set out to achieve. We wanted to create a collection with a foundation of world art. We did not intend to stay rooted in one spot and rather wanted to take wild experiments and invent something that the neo-woman could relate to. We wanted to go with the flow and simply create without any boundaries or follow any conventional norms.
We began each day with an empty canvas without any plan or agenda. We wanted to remain fearless through the entire process as we created patterns and designs from scratch. We wanted this collection to largely emulate our renewed vision - taking one day at a time and taking inspiration from everywhere.“ says Jeyasree Ravi, Founder of Palam Silks.
This “Wild & Free” approach is a novel experiment in Kanchipurams, as the designs range from South Asia and touches upon rich cultures across the globe.
Mundanity is unappealing. This collection is for women who wish to see a change in their lives as well - who are willing to stop and rethink. They envision a future that is still taking shape - toying around with raw emotions that are unperturbed by the external noise and dogmas. Even a simple start can turn into something monumental.
Palam Silks presents Seeker - a collection, true to its name, flaunts unique Kanjeevarams with designs taking inspiration from rich cultures across the globe. This emboldened vision of surrendering to the artistic flow of a designer is a bold endeavor that has created a stir in the world of South Indian fashion. The collection spotlights Borderless Kanjeevarams and Zari Jacquard silk sarees in dark and pastel shades.
