It’s no secret, Kallol Datta is one of our favorite designers and this most recent collection of his has us once again gush in his favor. Taking forward the theme of “illustrations” and “Jailstripes” from his last collection, the designer showed looks that played off of texture, layering and clever styling.
Pants, jackets, saris and dresses in fabric like voile and habutai (a thin silk) made up the collection. My favorite perhaps has to be the ‘Sathya Saran’ dress (extreme left, first row) where the red printed dress had a rather unusual detailing on the back- the fringe/yarns bunched and plaited paying a tribute to the journalist Sathya Saran. You’ve got to love the cheeky take. Styling aside, that fringe dress needs to find it’s way in to our closets!
