Metallic Print Trend Fall + Winter 2012 – Indian Foil Work

Ever since Chanel, Yves Saint Laurent, Dolce & Gabbana and Marchesa gave their Fall/Winter collections the Midas Touch, the fashion world has been enamored with metallic prints. Here’s the good news for all the Indian fashion enthusiasts out there: Indian foil work sarees are an easy and chic way to incorporate a little metallic into your wardrobe. (And did we mention foil detailing is great for festive season?)

When you wear a foil work saree, you’ll radiate confidence from every detail in the foil work patterning. To create those gorgeous designs, artists infuse gold and silver foils directly into a saree’s fabric, placing and stitching the shimmering materials carefully to shape form patterns and motifs. The result? A festive, fun (and light as a feather) way to make a unique fashion statement.

Luxemi loves how foil work patterns add dimension to a saree and catch the light in a gorgeous way. And they’ll definitely put you in a mood for celebrating this festive season!

We’re dying to wear all the foil work looks in the Luxemi collection, but there are definitely a few worth highlighting for festive season. One of our favorites is this Gold Foil Stamp Saree, which features Egyptian-influenced foil work and a stunning gold border that pop against this saree’s lush Kelly green fabric.

If you want to show off your artistic side, our Tonal Saree with Foil Printing by Satya Paul has tons of movement and super precise foil work patterning against blue ombré georgette. And if you’re in the mood to feel elegant and sophisticated, this Foil Printed “Club” Pallu Saree by Satya Paul is an absolute stunner. Just look at it for yourself and you’ll see what we mean!
