‘SALT’ by Ruchi Mehta Spring / Summer 2009


A subtle palette of textures with unique detailed embellishment is the hallmark of the label ‘salt’.

The look this season is very flirty, more experimental and decidedly holiday. The inspiration of the collection was a beach honeymoon. The shapes, as always, are easy and skim the body with grace, to be worn on their own or over swimwear. From short shifts and dresses to over-long cover ups and tunics, the sense of surprise and excitement is retained. Colours are soft and textured and there is an intimate play of transparency & translucency of silk, layering on chiffons and cut working on opaques to create another dimension on the clothes. It’s a very sea, sun and sand look, a lot of pebble and palm inspired motifs in the embroidery with sparkle details to take it into the evening. The colour palette is soft and feminine, from beige to sand, taupe, silver going to mauve, brown and ocean.

Ruchi Mehta will showcase her collection under her label ‘salt’ at Lakme Fashion Week in Mumbai on Monday, 20th October 2008 (Day I) at 2: 30 p.m.  –(SAMPURN)
