Winter is coming but summer is already here. HBO’s Game of Thrones is running its final season are we are all obsessed. To top up our obsession, Masaba Gupta launches a summer wardrobe capsule collection of the official merchandise from Game of Thrones.
Masaba Gupta acquired the official license to create apparel, home products, and jewellery inspired by the show for India, the UK, and Indonesia making ‘House of Masaba’ the only fashion label in India having the rights to do so. She revealed her collaboration with show last year and left us all thrilled with anticipation by not revealing her intentions of launching the collection during the show finale.
The collection features eighteen womenswear and five menswear outfits and twelve jewellery pieces featuring graphics, symbols and quotes from the show. The womenswear collection includes capes, trench coats, corsets, dhoti sarees and a gown saree while the menswear collection includes t shirts and kurtas. The colour palette solely consists of three colours- red, white and black and the fabrics used are sheer, organza, silk and cotton which can easily be used to create the silhouettes of kaftans and dhotis.
The collection is basically a fusion wear line as Masaba focused on bringing the Indian aesthetic touch to the American series. Unlike the extremely dramatic clothes worn by the characters in the series, the clothes from this collection can be easily worn in daily lives.
Though inspired by the entire series, the collection is focused on one particular character as Masaba reveals that “The collection pays homage to Arya Stark. She’s one character who goes through an interesting sartorial evolution.”
The jewellery range includes rings, charm pendants, long dangling earrings, bracelets and layered chokers in a gold and silver texture. The jewellery is designed with motifs like the seven kingdoms, the sigil storm, a dragon caught in the flame, flying raven and more references from the show.
Masaba makes sure that even though the show will be over soon, it will never be forgotten.
