Suneet Varma’s world is set in motion, once he starts to work with simplistic sophistication enclosed in an universe of sexy glamazons. The minaudières he designed for Judith Lieber, one of the foremost names in bejewelled handbags are available at Harrods for you to shop in.
It’s all a little bit Swan Lake but how Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky potrayed it in the mid-19th Century. Inspired by Russian folklore, the story goes as such that, a beautiful young princess, Odette, is turned into a swan because of an evil magician’s curse.
There is a royal ball, wherein a prince with a formerly lavish lifestyle, is forced to find a wife soon to compensate for his mannerisms of living. Upset at the sudden problems of having to marry for something other than love, he tries to drown his sorrows in a swan hunt in the nearby magical forest.
At the pond’s clearing, during the dark starry night, the prince meets Odette and falls in love with her, and after a lot of adventure and just as much magical spells, the pair are reunited to live happily ever after.
The essence of the story resembles Suneet’s notion of keepsakes from friendly encounters, travel journals, memoirs and the transformation that his designs have gone through the eyes of a very versatile narrative.
