Paris Fashion Week: Manish Arora Spring 2010

18

It’s nothing but love for Mr. Arora around here!

No birds, animals or circus sets this time around, just sleek geometric patterns.

His rather futuristic Spring 2010 collection marries Indian techniques with geometric lines/design in the most eclectic manner. Swarovski crystals, the now almost signature contoured hips, hint of drama, eighties silhouettes (those exaggerated shoulders!), a nod to sci-fi… this collection had it all.

The stiff bodices, structured silhouettes and an interesting color palette had us hooked. A far more wearable collection than anything we’ve seen from him lately; we can’t wait for these clothes to be spotted off the runway.

And how ‘crazy’ is that Manish chose to show his collection at Paris’ rather infamous ‘Crazy Horse’ cabaret? ;) Love.

    • lol FUNNY!! … hehe yeah except for like 1 or 2 i can’t really imagine how or where i could wear them!

      maybe they mean wearable in comparison some of his other work.. since they don’t have a carousel for a skirt or pointed bra tops to shoot fire out of!!

    • I would wear the two mini-dresses straight off the runway…everywhere ;)
      Haven’t you looked at The Satorialist? I can totally imagine those fiercely stylish beings of awesomeness wearing this collection wihtout a care in the world. It’s all in how seriously you take fashion. I’m sure that when this stuff acutally goes on sale it’ll be completely wearable to the less statuesque folks. I think what P&P were refering to was the fact that there were no animatronic flowers attatched to any of these clothes.

  1. HE SHOWED IT AT THE CRAZY HORSE???? Awwww, I’ve been wanting to stalk Dita Von Teese there for ages, I think she’s done with her show though :(
    Oh yeah, there is nothing but love for MA on this front as well :D

  2. Eccentric genius, but genius nonetheless. The surface ornamentation on the clothes is just amazing! Thank god for this Arora in a world full of Malhotra’s!

  4. Wo wo! Hold on! Genius???? I mean… this looks like… just random “objects” stuck onto fabric (or whatever)…

    Like sometimes we start random free hand drawings n we make something so bizarre, but we think …omg that’s so unique (that no one knows what it is), so I must be a genius!
    According to me, fashion is not about daring to wear rubbish, and pull it off, but wear stuff that becomes the trend and induces the desire of EVERYONE to go get that…and wish! Oh man! I wished I had that outfit!

  5. He is mindblowingly creative and probably very well ahead of his times. However we live in the present and he needs to tone it down a notch ….ok a couple of notches. I think the first two dresses are AMAZING…His work could give Balmain a run for their money..ok maybe not.

    BUT he needs to remember the women he is dressing! I think he sort of has it stuck in his head that every woman is a Von Teese or a Lady Gaga…when really we are all just Zooey Deschanels ;-)
    This is one of his more wearable lines BUT you cannot make a line where half of your clothes are not wearable….

  6. The way the clothes are presented on the runway is not exactly what will be available in stores. As separates, most of his clothes are very wearable. Yes, they are not for everyone, but then nor are JJ Valaya’s carpet lehengas!
