The lightness of being
Mannat Gupta is a contemporary label born out of the desire to dress inspiring women around the globe who symbolize strength and simplicity.
This exacting ethos extends to everything we do at our studio. From the earnestness with which we select our lush, featherlight fabrics to the minimal silhouettes that are finished with discerning details, each piece at Mannat Gupta is made with the intent to become your second skin and let your personality shine.
Many of our pieces are characterized by a rich, contrasting colour palette and notable textures created with meticulous hand-pleating and manipulation of various fabric weights. A departure from stuffy tailoring, the touch and feel of our materials shape-shift as the wearer moves. Our design philosophy is, thus, a culmination of an aesthetic that is lucid yet luminous; timely yet time-tested; and leisurely yet long-lasting.
A common thread of versatility and functionality ties all our collections together. Naturally, each material, technique, and cut is made with our transcending realities in mind. A careful marriage between opulence and ease, all our creations can be translated and worn for myriad seasons, destinations, and moods. However, more than anything, we want to be a part of a universe that supports, uplifts, and celebrates all kinds of tenacious women; a world where style and substance go hand-in-hand. At Mannat Gupta, we’re on a journey – pertinent, disarming, and omnipresent in each one of our endeavours – that illuminates us time after time.
ABOUT THE COLLECTION
Beyond draws inspiration from Mark Rothko’s paintings, famously known as ‘multiforms’ (large blurred fields of solid color devoid of any figures or symbols). There is a feeling of transcendence and unexplained overwhelm of emotions when a person first looks at his work. The minimal language in Rothko’s artwork is what appealed to us and it is what we try to follow in our philosophy as well. By using solid colors and manipulating the fabric with pleats and ruches, we have tried to create depth and texture in each garment. Through the collection, we hope that people can have an open perspective and that each individual finds their own experiences and ideas to share.
