Fashion | Harsh Harsh S/S 2014

Founded in 2012 by Harsh Gupta, the label Harsh Harsh speaks of glamour coupled together with sophistication. Born in the city of Lucknow that speaks of grace, Harsh has studied on Delhi and Mumbai while receiving a number of awards including being a finalist on a design reality show.



At his recent preview of his upcoming S/S 2014 collection at a quaint little organic cafe, I was enamoured by some of his pieces from the collection. What struck me instantly was the bright use of colour - the neons, the pinks and the oranges. While brights have been in for the past few seasons, summer will probably revisit them this season too.


The structures were fitted and flowing and a maxi silhouette was the most prominent one that I noticed in his collection. In addition to the bright colours, there was the bold use of colour-blocking in a number of his garments, a trend we've gotten very acquainted to by now. Contrasting and complimentary shades were merged together in a clash.



To juxtapose his usage of neons, he used the achromatic black and white in the form of blocks of colour and stripes. The cuts and definition of the garment are clean and sharp which make for a structured and neat design.




This season's collection of Harsh Harsh is inspired by the work of a French conceptual artist Daniel Buren who is best known for his contrasting stripes and installations. In conversation with Harsh, he mentioned that he was inspired by Buren's work and strives to create a look that is sophisticated and sporty-chic at Harsh Harsh for the modern, fashion loving woman.


How did you like the collection?
