Taika by Poonam Bhagat
Miro SS 10 is inspired by the Barcelona born Spanish artist, Joan Miro (1893-1983). Miro art is hard to describe. It is characterized by brilliant colors combined with simplified forms that remind me of drawings made by children , playful and naive … at first glance !
Joan Miro’s art integrates elements of Catalan folk art and he liked to compare his visual arts to poetry. The collection is Poonam Bhagat’s interpretation Miro’s Art with a twist and is paired it with a kaleidoscopic palette of abstract designs created at TAIKA and interwoven into the story line.
The canvas is , of course , egg white ! Solid and sheer fabrics in Ivory , like linen , organza , cotton silk and chanderi cleverly combine together to form myriad shapes of cocoon , tulip and sheath dresses , paper bag pants , jumpsuits and tunics. Brightly colored cloth and thread spool accessories lend their own playful charm. The art has been colorfully and artistically rendered through various stitching techniques including embroideries and appliqués. Primary colors take on a vivid and appealing slant against the egg white back drop making the ensembles feisty and fun.
In a nutshell , the Miro collection from Taika by Poonam Bhagat is FASHION ART which is idiosyncratic and sometimes eccentric .
