A celebration of the Circle of Style and our creativity. This collection is a symphony of ranges, a fluid flow of melodious creativity. Ultimately this collection is an expression of experimentation. It is in our DNA as artists to always tell many stories through a single show. At the heart of our design expression are multiple dreams brought to a single reality. We are always restless, ever enthused by a desire to break boundaries and make the impossible, reality. This collection sees a new birth as we celebrate our own history and write the future. We are reaching out, challenging ourselves in our continuing mission for beauty. This collection is our creative vision for the future. It is a statement of our commitment to reinvent ourselves, to reach ever higher, to set a new standard of expression,” said Abu & Sandeep.
Since their first show, Abu and Sandeep are renowned for their extraordinary and abundant use of colour.
