The Amalgamation Collection is a textile rhapsody of weaving together multiple patterns into one single textile. Treating the Ikat making process like a canvas, our artisans have dived into the freedom which textile weaving offers. The collection integrates varying classic Pochampally motifs in one fabric, giving the simple silhouettes a new freshness. Each garment in the collection endeavours to fit into the field of vision as many different motifs and patterns as possible, making it distinct in its own way.
The silhouettes are uncomplicated and practical while leaving the focus on the intricate weaving process. The cuts involve a balanced asymmetry making every garment tell its own distinct story. Pockets, being a quintessential Translate element, have also been incorporated to make the garments functional and hands-on.
Giving our classic colour palette a slight twist, the collection engages in a beautiful interplay between neutrals of grey, blue and black with fresh pink. The ensembles range from lightweight styles like kaftans, kimono jackets, basic shift dresses to straight-cut kurtasand long jackets.
The Soil Collection : Soil, the secret sublimation of the land. The humming dignity of the gravid ground. Inspired by diverse terrains of the Mother Earth, the ’Soil Collection’ is a pursuit to create pieces that reflect the various characters, textures, colors and grains of the earth. Giving the illusion of being washed in soil, the boldness of the pieces lies in the muddy colors while the Ikat weaves radiate a sense of earthiness.
Giving the simple silhouettes a new freshness, the collection sees for the first time, the ‘cocoon shape’. Keeping comfort as a key element, we revisit our classic styles with basic shift dresses, straight-cut kurtas and open long jackets. Adding to the ensembles are palazzos and culottes in bright solid colours complimenting the rest of the collection.
