Shamaeel Ansari is well-known not only for its luxurious and elegant designs, but also keeping abreast with the stylistic needs of her customers with time. With Eid ul Azha just around the corner and summer heat on its peak, fashionistas won’t back down from looking ravishing on the festive occasion but they would want to pick designs that are summer-friendly and regal at the same time.
Keeping in mind the spirit of the occasion as well as the festivities that ensue Eid, Shamaeel has launched its new Eid Collection that’s further divided into three categories. We’ve reviewed these three ranges and and picked out our favourites that are definitely must-haves in your wardrobe.
Beat the heat with Light Weight Luxury
Who doesn’t love pure cotton nets? To add more charisma to the look, Shamaeel has weaved these with beautiful embroideries inspired by suzzani colours and motifs. The knee-length flared shirt has multiple hand-worked pattis to create a visually appealing shirt.
Another powder blue pure chiffon number stand out from the rest. This one looks more regal with a fully hand-embroidered floral pattern over the floor-length front open coat. Hand embellishments are spread in zardozi with pearls, sequins, stones and 3D flowers. The pleating and pearl details over the sleeves are an additional ornamentation.
Celebrate the Festive Season
Coat style pretty much rules Shamaeel’s collection for this Eid but the designer has added different elements to distinguish the ranges. The assortment for Festive Season has a beautiful gold work shalwar to complement each design. The overall look of this range is very regal with jewel tones and attention to cinch on the waist. Some of the pieces are stitched as loose kaftans, but prints are either oriental or Mughal-art inspired.
We particularly loved this digitally printed pure raw silk dress in magenta over muted gold. The tones are pleasant on the eyes. Hand-worked colored aar floral motifs on neck, front and sleeves with gold tilla outlines on front border enhancing the print. The dress is paired with a pure silk shawl and beautiful belt.
Cosmopolitan Chiffon Collection for the urbane women
In 2019, you cannot forget a contemporary woman and her style. Shamaeel has also delivered fashion-wise on that ground by making a line dedicated to the refined aesthetics of modern times. The fabrics are digitally printed in bold picasso styled designs. This lime green poncho with fringe details is enhanced by a multicolored print and a hint of hand-embroiderey over the neck with pearls, stones, zardozi and resham work.
This blue pure chiffon number with colour blocking patterns and sequins finishing is styled as a long tunic with box cut sleeves. With a slight cinch on the waist, the loose shirt is paired with straight pants and pointed toe heels for maximum impact.
