Nothing seemed so cliché at first glance when Carolina Herrera tried to go-round with floral for spring summer collection as she has done this before. But the task was to sample new fabrics and experiment new materials making the collection edgy while she kept trying to push the boundaries the embroidery on skirt was unusual and simply outstanding. She took a step furtherer by painting those pieces into pink and then piecing them together like tile mosaic. But for those who may want to play safe and mainstream, there are pieces for them as well.
Aimed at bridal wear for spring/summer, Shyamal and Bhumika presented their collection called “A Mystical Garden” which was a floral fantasy at Lakmé Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2014.The Grand Hyatt Ballroom was turned into a fragrant garden with a backdrop of trellised flower bouquets and rows of blossoms that lined either side of the ramp.Inspired by the romantic Edwardian era, there was a marked Gothic influence.The designers chose a variety of lavish fabrics to maintain the bridal look. Raw silks were at the top of the list with net, satin, silk dupioni and sensuous crepe georgette . Colours that blossomed on the runway, created a riot of floral hues as peach, beige, rose, moonlight, dusty aqua, chocolate brown, deep wine and other tones created magic on the ramp. A variety of silhouettes were offered to the resort bride by the designing duo. Classic flared tented voluminous skirts swirled with empire lines, while gentle drapes gave the bias flared maxis and gowns. For more sultry touches, sexy embellished net bodices and corsets added to the glamour of the collections. Looking stunning on the ramp were the silk flared gowns, cowled ankle length satin dress, layered net maxis.
The collection called “Please Have a seat” by Mrinalini Chandra was inspired by the humble chair that is present in every home. The collection was a visual feast for the audience as the models walked the ramp in elegant feminine silhouette that was highly complimented with the gold jewellery. The neck pieces were inspired from geometric chair designs and large brooch from zodiac wheel. Hair ornaments, shoulder dusters and nose rings also formed the part of jewellery presented in the show. Models walking the ramp bare-lagged were what made the collection even more authentic. White sharp blazer and trouser were also present. The model walking in pink plain saree with big nose piece, neck piece, earrings and Bengals was my favourite look. Ms Mrinalini knows what a girl/woman of any age would admire the most and how to get it delivered right. I will give 10 out of 10 for the stricking jewellery collection that every woman in the Grand Hyatt ballroom was insatiably lusting over.! Click here to see the entire collection.
There was the complete male silhouette at Lakme Fashion Week day 1 that everyone was talking about. The guy knows how to steal the show and how to make everyone compliment you and talk about you. NIFT graduate Ujjawal Dubey with his label, “Antar Agni” created a sartorial men silhouette that takes inspiration from Middle and Far East. The collection titled “No longer the Hunted” revealed the rugged look that moved from woven to knits. The trousers were wide and roomy (for which I’d loosely use the term “Harem”) provided the Afghani male’s natural vibes. Natural shades of grey, black, beige and deep electric added excitement to the garments.See more pictures here.
