    Low Point: Reminded me of some of Gauri and Nainika’s older collection! And that “face” thing!

    Priyanka Says
    High Point: Loved the use of color and print.

    Low Point: Repetitive silhouettes, still hung-over from the last collection, needs to get over the self-image (the face) print!

    High Point: Very wearable! Loved the menswear too!

    Low Point: None really..

    Priyanka Says
    High Point: Could wear those pieces off the runway, into everyday life!

    Low Point: An extremely commercial collection, not necessarily a bad thing but wish there were at least some pieces that showcased the creativity of designer no holds barred.

    High Point: The whole dark color schemes with the burst of color was nice.

    Low Point: Some of the silhouettes I didn’t care for.

    Priyanka Says
    High Point: Loved the harlequin interpretation. Also, it was interesting to finally see menswear that was exciting yet not too over the top.

    Low Point: Women’s wear was boring and unimaginative.

    High Point: What’s not to love! I so want the “ki farak painda” shirt!

    Low Point: None!

    Priyanka Says
    High Point: Loved the use of color and graphics. So street chic!

    Low Point: Camouflage is too red-neck’ey and white trash’ey unless someone is really in the army. Even in its inventive form. No. No. No.

    High Point: Liked the saris and the jackets. The jackets had a very khadi feel to em.

    Low point: The pants..not digging at all..

    Priyanka Says
    High Point: The jackets, love, love, love. Very earthy, organic, and so structured. The day dresses with the red accents were a hit too.

    Payal Says
    High Point: Loved the outfits with the rust colors..

    Low Point: Same old tried and tested designs…

    Priyanka Says
    High Point: The play on Indian print on western silhouette worked.

    Low Point: Was boring and safe, there was nothing new about it and could have been from any season before and not in a ‘classic’, ‘timeless’ way either!

    Payal Says
    High Point: The brass lamps and dancing!

    Low Point: Same as the last collection.

    Priyanka Says
    High Point: Classic Indian design, prints and silhouettes with clean, minimal design that make them timeless. Love the jackets over saris.

    Low Point: Needs to move away from jeweled prints and accents. It’s a signature look and all that, so do a few pieces and move on. Really.

    High Point: Loved the blues and mirrorwork..

    Low Point: While I loved the kali print top, reminds me so much of Manish Arora!

    Priyanka Says
    High Point: Loved the day dresses and skirts in creams, whites and blues. Also, the kali print tops.

    Low Point: The floral print dresses were a big let down as were the kaftans. Even the day wear fared better only in comparison, the collection in itself was disappointing.

    1. Its not the Kali print, its called the Devi Mandala series that she started her entire collection with in the late 80’s. They were her lucky charm….I should know because I have one peice from her collections, and know her personally and she talks about it in all her collections.
