A far cry from what we know know of Mr. Pardesy, Ellipses, was his venture into the bling territory. While some may applaud on Adnan Pardesy’s attempt to try something new, others may frown upon him to abandon his self in an attempt to commercialize. While personally for me, treading on new territories comes with the risk and while the collection was not really upto his usual mark, I would give it to him to experiment rather than falling off into stagnancy.

Using a dark toned palette, Pardey’s collection had gowns and cocktail dresses, boleros and capes in his presentation. While he did use the traditional hand embroidery materials in the contemporary way, case in being the checkerboard optical illusion LBD and the embroidery on the brown jacket, we certainly missed his fine fabric detailing, which he displayed in one of the maroon jackets.

The jewellery done by Maliha Shaikh deserves special mention, because it was bang on according to Pardesy’s tastes and was contemporary and edgy at the same time.  My pick from the collection has to be the checkerboard  LBD. Furthermore from jewellery, I have my eyes set on the cuffs that adorned the model’s hands.
