Think of a beautiful sunset and a dim nightfall, then merge it with opulent glamour and that’s how Élan’s recent luxury prêt formal wear collection titled, Art de Vivre (which means the art of living) has been envisioned. The brand has used clothes as a canvas and painted an exquisite portrait with each exuberant ensemble, oozing subdued elegance in a subtle colour palette.
Élan is one of the few trusted front-runners when it comes to designs that not only explore eclecticism but also idyllic fusion of eastern and western forms. The formal wear range encompasses pastel hues with pearl, crystal and sequin embellishments over intricate thread work.
Here are the seven ensembles that we particularly love from the assortment:
This shade of lavender goes a long way. Styled with a flattering heavily embellished jacket, it is ideal for a formal occasion. With fully encrusted blooms and linear details over the hems, this will definitely make you the center of attention wherever you go. This dreamy look will hold people in a trance. The cool minty hue is refreshing and the cape sleeved jacket accentuated with floral appliqués has a fun play of layers. The jacket is worn over a silk slip and sharara pants to create a serene look.
The capsule has a very vintage feel to it especially this rosy peach number. The glamorously draped gown has an elegant silhouette with embellished bodice and cape sleeves, a style dramatic enough to stand out.
The refined elegance of these two pieces is worth investing it. Lushly embellished with trimmings and details over blush pink and ivory base, these ensembles will surely make a statement. The flowing kalidar frocks rendered on cobweb tulle are high on glam quotient.
If you want to don a quintessential Élan look, then opt for this sublime spring colour palette. With beautiful florals and leaves neatly placed in harmony with delicate threadwork, these flattering jacket designs are paired with trendy harem pants to give a chic and opulent look.
Élan’s luxe formal collection is available online and in stores, so don’t forget to have a look!
