March 13, 2011, Mumbai: Making his debut collection for Summer/Resort 2011 at Lakmé Fashion Week, Siddartha Tytler presented a truly innovative line called “Metalosophy”. Here was a collection that reveals Siddartha’s flawless signature touch using metallic brilliance either in the elements or colours of each creation.

Sensuous jersey, French chiffon, embellished georgette, sexy silk spandex, beautiful lengths of lamé and luxurious Duchess satin were transformed into stunning dresses, gowns, tops, jackets, kaftans, minis and shirts. His colour story matched the dazzle of the garments as grey, black, white, silver and gold added to the distinct style statement of the creator.

Detailing has been Siddartha’s forté with sheeting, negative sheeting, crystals and appliqués which created a beautiful mélange. Metal Mosaic which was a fusion of metallic shaped crystals, chain mail, crystal mesh and embroidery formed intriguing patterns to resemble parts of a machine on the garments.

Siddartha unleashed the full blast of bling in a show divided into white and black. Opening with a sexy white front cowl sheath, followed by leggings with a metallic blouse; Siddartha added on the white, grey, yellow floral design for cocktail dresses, ponchos and micro mini draped jersey dress with rhinestone shoulder interest. Tiny gold lamé shorts, and batwing white self- design blouse preceded the gold brocade will-power dress, the metallic gold shift, dazzling crystal corsets and wide lapel belted metallic coat dress. The dramatic end to the white section was a shimmering halter gown.

For midnight drama, Siddartha started the black line with a tiny mini skirt, stretch body suit, chiffon beach kaftan swimsuit, one shoulder jersey mini, and sensational crystal corset. Digital prints on grey chiffon appeared for gowns and draped cocktail dresses. With a collection of gold/silver metallic abstract design batwing poncho, dress, sheath and sack, Siddartha ended his Summer/Resort 2011 showing.

With the eternally popular black and white splashed with metallic dazzle, Siddartha Tytler offered one of the most glamorous collections for the global cocktail circuit.
