Riddhi and Siddhi Mapxencar showcased their latest collection “Waves of Temptation” at India Resort Fashion Week 2012. The theme was a continuation of the previous collection “Dark Temptations”. It focused on the intensities of temptations that a person experienced by exploring love. In the beginning, we experienced the innocent, fragile and purist emotions, then we go to dark emotions of lust, jealousy and hatred, which turns love upside down.
“We were extremely excited to be part of IRFW 2012. Resort collection is not restricted only to swimwear or beach wear. It’s a lifestyle in itself, and we made sure that the entire experience of resort wear was imbibed in our collection.”
“This particular fashion show is very close to our heart, as it was in Goa, the place where we were brought up for nearly 20 years. Our friends and family were equally excited about it. The response was overwhelming. People, who came to see the show, were extremely thrilled and happy about the show. The garments were loved by everyone.”
“As we said before, we are basically from Goa…So it’s our home…We were looking for an opportunity to showcase a show for quite sometime…What better opportunity than India Resort Fashion Week….It is a great platform for both established and upcoming talents too.”
“Resort collection was a bit challenging for us, as we have mostly done structured garments, since the inception of our label, and that is what we are known for. So, this time we made sure that the structure was mixed with fluidity.”
The collection featured mint blues, salmon pink, dull gold shades, and then graduated into darker tones, like black and etc. (represented dark feelings). The garments embraced flowing textures with a lot of wave details used in constructions.
“We do structured garments, but for this line we worked with textures and layering on fluid silhouettes. Yes, we know it’s Resort, but there will be no bikinis! We have day and evening looks that will work year-round. Look out for our signature power sleeves, though it will be a bit relaxed here.”
“We made total of 30 garments, 15 colorful and the rest 15- all black….”Waves of Temptation” is an extension of our last collection “Dark Temptations”, so some of the pieces from the last collection were incorporated into this collection too.”
“The collection emphasizes on different intensities of temptations, which a person explores in love. Right from the innocent, fragile and purist emotions to dark emotions of lust, jealousy and hatred, which is nothing, but love turned upside down.”
“The color story includes mint blues, salmon pink, dull gold, and it graduates into darker tones, including black representing the dark feelings. The garments are incorporated with flowy textures with lots of wave details, coming into the garment constructions.”
MapxencaRS “Waves of Temptation” collection featured beautiful light silhouettes combined with the elements, like power shoulders, texturing on fabric, subtle self embroidery and etc.
