    …draws inspiration from 18th century Indian mogul jewelry…

    Mogul Shmogul,… I dont see it either!
    It looks more oriental inspired to me… with the Chinese knot pattern and the chain loops.

    These days, its a fashion statement to use Indian names…whether it makes sense or not… another story!

      agree with all you said.

    well it seems that the inspiration started and ended at the name ‘Sutra’..which actually seems to be inspired from ‘Kamasutra’ which again sounds so juvenile..am sure a big fashion house could have done way better with just a tiny bit of research.

    the inspiration seems to be frm the south indian rangolis (called kolam) – the dollars are typical motifs of this form of rangolis.

      You’re right and the charms also remind me of moghul caligraphy. I guess its subtle… not always a bad thing.x

    Well…Sutra in sanskrit means ” a strand that connects things” or ” a chain” and the designs depict this very clearly and they were right in naming the line as such. Mugal inspiration…i don’t see….

      Amen. this is what it means. it is sad that the peeps at DvF got the meaning right while naming the collection but the people of the country that inspired it , have no clue.
      As much as i love mughal inspirations i dotn see it here also these chain forms can be seen very widely in filigiri silver works..which go way back in history.

    Hideously ugly crap with minimal craftsmanship. Why does Mrs. Furstenberg think she can meander into Cartier territory?
