Drawing inspiration from the ‘Sailor’ isn’t something new… sadly neither was Rimi Nayak’s execution of it.
Her collection ‘Azure Amour’ that drew upon the theme of the ‘sailor’ and ‘his sweetheart’ saw of lot of blues and whites naturally, with looks that ranged from heavily nautical to Grecian silhouettes. Some of the pieces were interesting but it mostly left us wishing for a fresher take on a ‘done-that’ theme.

With an inspiration like ‘chanachur or Bombay Mix’, a mixture (snack) popular in Kolkatta, our interest in the collection was piqued. But what came out of Debarun Mukherjee’s collection called “Miracle Mix” was one big disappointment. The color palette was mostly a mix of rusts, browns, mustards and burnt oranges and the silhouettes seemed rather uninspired. The embellishments and embroidery just seemed so dated. Perhaps the only thing interesting about this showing was the goody bag with the mixture packet. Yum.
