Style Spotting with ORRA – Navy Blue Is The New Black!
ORRA’s fine diamond jewellery sparkles against the alluring hue of navy blue.
Navy blue is a color with an illustrious place in modern fashion. While black is a hue that can be flattering, versatile and formal, navy blue breathes elegance and class into everything from hats to shoes. Yes, black is a classic but this latter too carries a timeless quality which makes it the perfect substitute for the former when looking for a touch of colour. What’s better – it beautifully complements a number of color palettes and matches the mood of a variety of events while adding to the intensity and style quotient of the look.
Coco Chanel brought the color into the feminine wardrobe and the deep, distinctive blue should be an essential in every fashion-forward bride’s trousseau. Whether it’s a welcome dinner or a cocktail party, a sangeet or a reception, it is pure glamor and grace and will send the style quotient sky high.
In the latest edition of Style Spotting, we paired the color with something it goes best with – glittering diamond jewellery from ORRA! In perfect contrast with the deeply pigmented fabric, ORRA’s century old legacy manifested in glorious glamor, demonstrating why it is preferred in discerning circles. The brand’s ability to amalgamate unparalleled craftsmanship with innovation makes every piece an exemplar of technical expertise and quality. Crafted using diamonds showcasing unmatched brilliance their pieces appeal to every bride looks to own the spotlight at every wedding function.
Brides-to-be Vishakha, Jahnvi and Janisha’s looks were curated to showcase the finest craftsmanship. The jewellery from ORRA found a canvas in clothing from designers Dolly J, Mishru and Payal Singhal. Transforming each into modern day royalty with a touch of the fairytale, makeup artist Mrudula Thombre maneuvered her deep understanding of industry trends and styles to give each young woman a unique look that enhanced their features. The final touch of sophistication came via hairstylist Bhagyashree Tanwar who enhanced their auras with her teasing of their tresses.
This sort of elegance begs for a resonant backdrop and the team found exactly what they were looking for at the Trident Hotel Bandra Kurla. The most breathtaking vistas and the beautiful brides inspired team Dilliwaale Weddings by Vardaan Malhotra whose instinctive approach and technical expertise resulted in stunning pictures.
A delicate design that holds the attention with its artistry makes for captivating jewellery. The ORRA necklace that Vishakha wore is reminiscent of intricate lace and sits gracefully on her neck. A row of brilliant diamonds fringed by loops on either side adds a touch of flamboyance. Following through on the daintiness, the bracelet evocative of a blooming rose, completes the look.
While designs inspired by nature and those derived from geometry are seen as styles distinctive of each other, Janisha’s necklace by ORRA marries these disparate influences in contemporary perfection. The honeycomb pattern creates the perfect balance between the motifs. Within each cell sits a single drop-shaped diamond, the hollow spacing capturing the eye. The set is matched with rings that align with the theme. On one hand, she wears a cocktail ring shaped like a rose and the other displays a ring that features contemporary liner design encrusted with diamonds.
Tiered necklaces have an intrinsic regal quality making anyone who wears one look like a queen. Jahnvi’s ORRA necklace set follows this design concept with its diamond-encrusted strands. Inspired by the floral decorations that brighten the day of a wedding, as well as jewels that belong to the treasure chests of the Mughals, this piece transforms her into a royal bride. The scintillating petals and leaves of this design work wonderfully with a bracelet whose pattern is evocative of a trellis enveloped in flowers.
