A GYPSY LIFE
This collection was inspired by the carefree lifestyle of a gypsy woman that paid homage to the GYPSET, a term coined by Julia Chaplin to celebrate the neo-hippie. The collection effortlessly weaves modern designs with traditional techniques, while underlining the beauty of the feminine form, making every outfit a timeless addition to one’s wardrobe.
Whoa! What’s not to love?

After showcasing at fashion weeks across the country, AM:PM Ankur & Priyanka Modi returned to the runway with a collection inspired by their travels around the world. The dynamic detailing on the designs was brought to life by texture, print, and embroidery, that was reminiscent of the Gypset lifestyle epitomized by style-icons Veruschka, Brigitte Bardot, and Talitha Getty.

With an eye on innovation the designer duo rustle up magic through a palette where tunics are reimagined as shirt-dresses, salwars as flared pants and classic long coats are given a modern twist by adding lapels.
Folklore with served with a dash of urban legends, ethnic inspiration with float-y lightweight fabrics and an unexpected combination of styles. Imagine a scalloped blouson paired with a long skirt, dhoti pants worn with their classic A-line coats.

The palette is reminiscent of deep desert hues and stays true to the central theme. From forest green and sand to wine and chili red, every hue is a cue to the simple pleasures that the Gypset finds joy in. The artisanal motifs of adorned horses are whimsically placed amidst rich, intricate patterns that effortlessly blend to create seamless surfaces interspersed with rich embroideries, stone embellishments and leather detailing against the canvas of silks, wools, and organza.
