Lakmé Fashion Week Day 4: The Swagger Effect
Day 4 began with Mrinalini Chandra’s ode to Shakuntala with patterned belts, draped necklaces and fish-link shawls. Anushree Reddy’s flirty, glamorous collection showcased free-flowing garments with age-old floral and newspaper prints. Mixing a line of doodled floral motifs with peasant checks, Sougat Paul created an utterly romantic line.
Dhruv Kapur’s collection displayed an unconventional palette consisting of reds, greys and blacks. His minimalist sharp creations were all about the power look. Playing around with androgynous styling, Pranav Mishra and Shyma Shetty of Huemn set forth a barrier-breaking creation that made quite an impact. Monica Shah and Karishma Swali of JADE showcased clean cut silhouettes all inspired by temple architecture.
With a mix of knits and wovens, Nupur Kanoi merged winter wear with bridal embellishments. Payal Singhal brought to the ramp racer back cholis, trendsetting silhouettes and the very rare Chintz print.
Known for her remarkable jewellery, Suhani Pittie pulled off yet another stunner using eye-catching hair pins, ear buttons, ear cuffs, palm cuffs and earrings. With soft delicate hues and strong floral overtones, Shehla Khan stayed true to her signature use of lace, heavy embroidery and ethereal creations.
Modern silhouettes, voluminous tulle gowns, new-age lehengas and anarkalis were the focal points of Shantanu and Nikhil’s creations. The mohawk like head-gear and facial ornaments rounded up a remarkably-styled collection.
Arjun Khanna combined leather, suede, lightweight wool and corduroy to create a part rebellious, part avant-garde look. Metal additions like zippers, rivets and chains gave it strength. The very dapper Yuvraj Singh ended day 4 with an overdose of drama.
