Delhi Couture Week 2012: Anamika Khanna

32

This high priestess of style delivers and how. Anamika Khanna’s latest presentation was every bit exquisite and covetable as most of her collections have come to be. Intricate craftsmanship and skillful use of color was hard to miss. This collection was made of separates to lust after and evening-wear we long to see on the red carpet.

With a sense of luxury that ‘Couture’ evokes, this collection was an easy favorite.

  2. wow! sheer elegance and opulence. love the way anamika plays with colors, her threadwork, styling and the fabrics she uses.. EXQUISITE!! A lot of her pieces are heirloom worthy.

    Just wish I could afford this grandeur…

  3. For the first time in ZILLIONS of collections, I actually gasped at the beauty of it all.
    I don’t know how any people will be able to carry some of the dhoti, but as a collection, right now, I love it.

  4. Drooling. Alot. Wow. LOVE LOVE LOVE the softer colours, but the rich ones are a sight to behold as well! Those mini-capes (what else to call them….anyone know what the right term would be?) remind of me the ones Elie Saab used a few seasons ago. Collection is so interesting, the lehengas are FAB: I am not sure which is my fave as I like them all! The lehenga that looks like a series of leaves is amaaaazing, what a statement! She is super-talented. I met her a few years ago in Bangalore through a friend who is an old customer of hers and not only is she talented, but she was also nice. That blue & beige coat (looks like it has applique/cutwork on it…can’t tell too well from the pic) would also look great with a fitted black dress, or well cut black pants, or even a nice pencil skirt….damn I want that so I can wear it to the office!!

  5. Its like she won’t entirely evolve incase she is forgotton or is still in love with her previous work. Move on… it looks like Sabyasachi and Manish Malhotra had a love child and dipped it in bleach. Just saying. Also there is nothing couture about that blue sari/drape.

  6. Of all the collections seen so far, this one really captivates and compels the viewer, to take in the beauty of each piece.

    There is so much detailing at all levels – structure, craftsmanship, creativity, color and beauty, that one can’t stop from gushing. Wow!

  7. It may just be me, but I think this collection of hers is tasteless. I see a lot of sparkle, though without any aesthetic pleasure. There’s one piece that’s passable to my eye, but overall her collection is nothing short of tawdry!

    • Agree with you! Those pieces in the first row are nothing short of horrendous – the black and gold tights visible through the untidily draped fabric, the shiny ponchos! I grew to LOVE her lehengas – just had to get my hands on one and some of her pieces are ethereal but this collection just doesn’t cut it for me.

  8. um did she just copy the CHANEL show runway idea with the off-white background and the dinning tables? How not original. And honestly, would anyone really wear this out (except sonam of course)? I like the pastels but wish the designs were more wearable and flattering for all body types.

  9. Brilliant collection. Quite frankly, this is the first time I was wowed since LFW and DCW.
    I do feel that these outfits are meant for tall women. Not sure if shorter ones can pull ’em off.

  10. Beautiful, different and couture worthy!! Love the pieces from the second row. These are much more balanced than what Sonam was wearing!

  11. I like the first one, first row and the second piece in the third row. But one needs to be tall like super tall to carry any of these outfits. Some of it also seem inspired by the ones from middle east without the head scarves.

  12. I’m from kashmir and my mom has outfits similar to these like capes n waistcoats with embroidery zardosi etc I don’t see anything innovative about this at all .. Not impressed

  13. I can see that the collection is nice (reminds me of Chanel’s runway show though), but this collection is also very confusing. It will be interesting to see if anyone can pull these outfits off at all.
