WLIFW A/W 2011: Day Two

1

Kavita Bhartia, WLIFW Autumn/Winter 2011

The vibe was certainly bohemian over at Kavita Bhartia. Season’s favorite color, burnt orange popped up on this runway as well among the more muted colors. Though not a fan of the prints, loved the embellished dresses.

Payal Jain, WLIFW Autumn/Winter 2011

Payal Jain referenced the five elements of nature (earth, water, fire, air and space) in her collection. Orange for fire, green for earth, blue for water… You get the drift!

Heavy in separates, the collection was among the better ones presented today. Pretty dresses and use of florals stood out… The orange dress and the super wide-legged trousers (palazzos!) were a favorite.

Ashima Leena, WLIFW Autumn/Winter 2011

Heavy in western-wear silhouettes, ombré effect, bandhani techniques and beaded embellishments made for some interesting pieces. Tribal influenced, the necklines were well-utilized. Some pieces did feel more Resort than Autumn, though the point perhaps is moot.

Pink, orange and green broken up with some black was this collection’s color palette. We weren’t really taken with the use of tulle nor with the way the florals were employed.

Komal Sood, WLIFW Autumn/Winter 2011

For her debut collection, Komal Sood presented evening-wear heavy collection. A dash of Archana Kochchar, a smidgen of Swapnil Shinde and a teeny helping of inspiration from international runways… Is it just us, or do you too feel like you’ve seen all this before?

A visual overload, and not really in the best way either. There’s so much going on and, none of it really feels cohesive…

And finally, on to Rajesh Pratap Singh.

This certainly was our favorite from day two. Hands-down. Beautifully structured clothes, impeccable work and so-sophisticated-and-quietly-charming. Love. Can’t wait to see these off-the-runway!
