Many of us use our heritage as a defining factor of self, a way to identify with what we are and what we are not. For Sheena Trivedi, that identification enters into her designs, amalgams of her New York self with the cultural influence of her Indian-born mother. Trivedi’s spring 2013 look book displays the blend perfectly: each shot has a different backdrop – Central Park station, the New York Times building, city rooftops – the models standing still as the busy urban scenes carries on behind them. Matched by kohl-dark eyes and bindis, their outfits meld traditional fabrics and drapes with the on-trend elements of tough urban NY life: leather, skinny pants, peplums and zip-up jackets.
There are plenty of cool pieces to be seen in Trivedi’s spring collection, not to mention those that are purely inventive – a one-shoulderd piece that could be a fabric interpretation of the Sydney Opera House…. a futuristic-feeling ensemble in vibrant royal purple that’s part shorts, part skirt, part top and part leather hooded jacket… and plenty of others.
