Tome takes an Indian Sojourn – Spring/Summer 2015

New York: Ryan Lobo and Ramon Martin blended the old and the new into a collection that was inspired by the work of Indian photographer Dayanita Singh and classical dancer Rukmin Devi. With a riff on Indian saris, one shoulder dresses in fluid pleats, moved with feminine fluidity while wrapped blouses were worn with cropped culottes in fine silk. Cropped jackets in metallic jacquards teamed with tailored skirts for a classic take on this theme. The standout part of the collection were the early silhouettes that included easy to wear pencil skirts, wide leg pants and cropped tops in a palette of lavender and charcoal not to mention belted trench dresses and the chic, oversized white shirts nonchalantly worn tucked into pleated skirts. – Lizzy Bowring
