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.
