“The principle of the design – the harmony, rhythm and balance are all the same.”

Designers Deepak Pavithran and Deva Durga D Thankan’s collection, The Untold has been inspired by the mystic knot, a Chinese decorative knot. The designs have been influenced by the interlocking and repeated patterns of the knot and the collection was a line of occasion wear.
The mystic knot is one of the symbols in Feng Shui. A combination of six infinity knots also referred as the endless knot represents the promise of a long and happy life filled with good fortune. The knots are said to have an auspicious flow of harmony and good vibes flowing through them.
The flow of harmony is not only portrayed through the designs of the collection but is also evident in the fabric used for the garments. Chiffon and crepe have been used to create the garments as they are light weight and give the effect of uninterrupted fall. Red is used for mystic knots and it was the dominant colour in the collection. The interpretation of the mystic knot is endless and this was represented by the use of two-toned red and grey to colour palette of the collection. The designers through their collection have tried to gain insight by studying about the magnificent puzzle, the mystic knot.
