Designers Falguni Shane Peacock made everyone sit up and take note when they announced their collaboration with renowned stylist Law Roach for their New York Fashion Week (NYFW) showcase. And the new power team did not disappoint!
Falguni Shane Peacock presented their latest collection ‘2.0’ at the NYFW runway on September 11, 2023, returning to the esteemed runway after a decade. Law Roach, who had come on board as the creative director for the showcase, pronounced it as “Mumbai meets NYC” on his Instagram. The designer duo couldn’t have been more thrilled to have him on the team as his “meticulous approach to fashion” and fearless ability to “think outside the box” aligns perfectly with the Falguni Shane Peacock brand ethos.
According to the designers, the collection is all about dichotomy. This time around, they’ve blended their characteristic maximalist design approach with a rough street-style aesthetic.
The models walked down the runway in shimmering silver and black latex outfits, with glittery bomber jackets, oversized tops, slouchy pants and of course, their signature feature detailing making an appearance.
In an older interview with HELLO!, the designers had said, “We have always loved our future-forward silhouettes, textures, faceted beads, bold shoulders, futuristic detailing, feathers and doing them in every possible way on different silhouettes, bright colours, you name it.” This is why ‘2.0’ is a stunning exploration of contemporary, pared-down silhouettes and grand, maximalist embellishments. For the latest showcase, the designers have chosen to highlight the work of artisans and craftsmen from villages in West Bengal.
This NYFW runway has marked another milestone in Falguni Shane Peacock’s growing global presence. The brand has become a favourite with international celebrities like Jennifer Lopez and Beyoncé. One of their lehengas was also worn by Sarah Jessica Parker in the first season of And Just Like That.
