Gucci, a luxury
fashion brand of Italy, has launched its new collection of printed, silk, and
linen kaftans inspired by Indian kurtas. The kaftans are designed with a
traditional neckline and tassels. Gucci has also been inspired by different
cultures, like many other brands, but this time it derived its inspiration from
Indian wear. Though it launched kaftans in 1996, its latest kaftan collection
has an element of Indian kurta and patterns of embroidery.
A Kaftan is a
piece of clothing that looks like a robe or tunic and originated in Asia. The
brandâ€™s new collection ranges from $2100 to $3500 which is too expensive for a
Kaftan but this step by the brand has infused Indian heritage with
of the product on the website of the brand, says that the Kaftan is an integral
part of aesthetics but has evolved in new materials and modern designs this
time. The dress is influenced by the 60s and 70s era. The fabric used is
lightweight and the layering is unique.
If the sources
are to be believed, it is not the first time that Indian culture has inspired a high-priced luxury
brand. The Milan fashion week 2018, showcased a model from Gucci walking on the
runway in a Sikh turban.
