Day 3: Lakmé Fashion Week Summer Resort 2017
Falguni Shane Peacock
The design duo showcased a red-carpet worthy collection of gowns, short dresses and jumpsuits that were high on glamour, with elements of edginess. Feathers, sequins and crystals were used as embellishments and the colour palette included nudes, scarlet, plum and black. The sheer organza jackets and cover-ups helped tone down the bling.
Narendra Kumar’s collection aimed at millennials was created primarily in linen, but used cotton and velvet as well. A youthful collection, it went from neutral daytime looks to bright printed looks and ended with well tailored evening wear looks in shades of wine. The bombers and embellished jackets were highlights.
Label Ritu Kumar
A mix of military accents, 90s glam and contemporary trends, Label Ritu Kumar showed easy separates, hot pants, tassled tops and dresses, graphic print separates, off shoulder maxis and bomber jackets. Berets, stylised military hats and chokers punctuated the looks.
Mira by Radhika Jain | Eurumme
Mira by Radhika Jain displayed ornate jewellery inspired by the Garden of Eden. Crafted out of metal and fibre used with multicoloured stones, the collection included pendants, rings, necklaces and bracelets.
Handcrafted jewels made out of real leaves dipped in gold, off kilter designs and geometric accents on beaten gold made Eurrumme‘s line a versatile must have in your chiffonier.
Inspired by dark romanticism, Payal Singhal brought her signature silhouettes in beaded kaftans and jackets, dhotis and camisoles. Metallic embroideries with tasseled fringes in midnight blue, emerald and black were paired side-swept hair. Statement chandeliers and music from La La Land added to the grand mood on the runway.
#Tagfree curated by Kshitij Kankaria
Tagfree curated by Kshitij Kankaria had real women walk down the runway in Rajesh Pratap Singh, Bodice, Dhruv Kapoor, Miuniku, Raw Mango, Sanchita and Suket Dhir. The show focused on real people’s style, eschewing the stereotypical runway presentations. To sum it up, it was about one thing: One size does not fit all!
Divya Sheth | Amoh by Jade | SVA
Checks and a play of colours on flared kurtas and maxi dresses were spotted at Divya Sheth. The puffed sleeve blouse paired with a yellow chequered sari made us reevaluate our style goals.
Whites and silver metallics at Amoh by Jade made a strong case for evening wear with flowing drapes and intricate embroidery,
SVA showcased resplendent festive wear for men and women. Embellished sherwanis and Nehru jackets for men made great wedding wear options. Cold shoulder silhouettes and lehengas had us dreaming of cocktail parties and glam weddings.
Chola | Farah Sanjana
Chola outdid itself with impeccable fluid tailoring and deconstructed, asymmetrical shapes in pristine whites and greys. Chequered overlays added to the drama of the drapes.
Tropical prints in bright mango hues and leafy greens at Farah Sanjana set the mood for a refreshing season ahead.
