Noted designer duo Shivan Bhatiya and Narresh Kukreja who are designing Anushka Sharma’s swimwear dresses in her upcoming film ‘Bombay Velvet’ says they enjoyed the whole experience.
According to Narresh the actress’ swimwear wardrobe in the Anurag Kashyap directed film shows the bold Parsi women in Bombay of the 1960s. We have designed Anushka’s swimsuit for the film. It was fun designing for her because it is a vintage collection as we love doing such range. It will show the bold Parsi women of Bombay in the 1960s, Narresh told media.
Bombay Velvet based on historian Gyan Prakash’s book Mumbai Fables stars Ranbir Kapoor opposite Anushka. The film is scheduled to release next May.
“We did an extensive research on Calder’s works before coming up with this collection. We reinterpreted his kinetic sculptures to the human form with precarious crafting and adaption,” Narresh said. Models sashayed down the ramp in bikinis, trikinis, sarees, jumpsuits in hues of black, moss, yellow and red. The designers said that Indian women should wear swimmers more often and should not go away from it. The collection saw prints inspired by Calder’s eye and his color blocks. “Indian women are shorter as compared to the West. So if they will wear high slit beach wears they will look tall. Being conservative is not the mantra of looking good,” Narresh told media.
