Bibhu Mohapatra SS13: Inspired By The Luna Moth

The Spring 2013 collection acknowledges the prophetic symbolism of the luna moth to celebrate the evolution and transformation of an ever-intiuitive Bibhu woman.

This is what Bibhu Mohapatra described as his inspiration for Spring ’13, included on the handouts at the show Wednesday morning. The first thing I did when I got home…Google luna moth.

Now that I know what a luna moth is, it’s definitely prominent in Bibhu Mohapatra’s Spring collection. However, it feels a little more stained glass than moth to me (but that’s not necessarily a bad thing!)

The colors in this collection were super rich, which was a refreshing sight after seeing so many neutral-focused collections. Silhouettes were powerful, structured and angular which really shows who the Bibhu woman is. Although taken on my iPhone, I love this shot of look 23 (onyx and chartreuse lace gown with draped organza shards) from the back.
