Bon vivant Harpreet is a true connoisseur of historic art and design, collecting ancient textiles through his explorations across the globe and showcasing his appreciation of ‘baroque’ in his creations. Elegant long stitching, Mughal motifs and Jamavar (paisley) patterns adorn dreamy drapes of fine georgettes, sensual velvets, and luxurious brocades occasionally curtained by gauzy nets. While Rimple’s charming regalia lends a clean-cut arrogance to the silhouettes and an armor of embellishments such as Swarovski, gemstones brought from Jaipur, Kha-kha work (seed-pearl stitch) akin to the Parsi or Convent embroidery, Kasab or Tilla work, the age-old Zardozi (gold thread work) and the timeless Gota ensure there’s nothing under-stated about the label.
The ensembles are complimented by made-to-order, extravagant accessories designed by Rimple. Elaborate jewelry pieces set in antique gold-colored metals and embellished with Kundan, beads, crystals and other precious stones take shape in breathtakingly beautiful ethnic designs. Think Kamarbandhs (traditional belts), Bajubandhs (arm bands), Paizebs (anklets), state-of-the-art brooches, and dazzling hairpieces.
- In Rimple’s own words
“The main ingredient of your wedding day, other than of course love, is the fact that it is the grandest day of your life. And we understand grand.”
Rimple and Harpreet’s signature, the Convent or Parsi embroidery and Zardozi are featured extensively across their current collection in women’s and men’s wear. The collection showcases long-stitched jackets and capes worn over Lehengas for the women, and sleek, front-open capes for the men. Also, available on request are ‘Goddess’ gowns with Western cuts and drapes with complete Indian ‘karigari’ or craftsmanship and traditional threadwork.
