Inspired by dramatic female characters Electra and Salome, the Bibhu Mohapatra Fall/Winter 2022-23 becomes an ode to women’s superpowers in everyday life. These women deserve fabulousness and glamour, and they are edgy and over-the-top in so many ways, juggling all sorts of responsibilities with grace and dynamism.
The clothes they are wearing are definitely from a new planet. They have a futuristic vibe combined with the old kind of glamour.
Corset-like details on patent leather, statement floral embroidery, billowy sleeves, balloon shapes, velvet lace, metallic fabrics, pleated maxi skirts, draping, and asymmetries give immense variety to a clientele that is ready to go many different directions in the post-pandemic era.
Embellished evening gowns, wrap Grecian details, and artisanal details showcase the craftsmanship of his team, especially those based in India.
Neutrals and bold colors such as orange and turquoise make for eye-catching cocktail dresses and evening gowns. Leather gloves give the collection a retro feel while sneakers, beanies, and rainboots turn some of the looks into everyday options.
This season, Bibhu shows he has a wider range, some more rebellious looks, appealing to the downtown girl as well as options for fashionistas who love to party. Midi hems are styled with high-heel ankle boots for a younger twist.
We loved the inclusive nature of the model lineup and the way that every woman looks charming in his fashions. We are excited to see more of his new-era creativity.
