Lecoanet And Hemant: LFW Summer/Resort 2010

Comment image 3

Yes, yes, yes, this is a bit late in coming but better late then never, no? 😉

Didier Lecoanet and Hemant Sagar presented a collection titled ‘Green’ during Lakme Fashion Week, which focussed on ethical fashion, and used fabrics like cotton, handloom silk and poplin in a color palette that was mostly dominated by rusts, greens, creams, beiges and black.

The collection was extensive… an almost exhausting range of bleached denims, jackets, trousers, skirts and shifts, not to mention menswear as well. But we couldn’t help but feel it was a tad repetitive and uninspired. There’s only that many shifts that can excite you. After a point it was a blur of clothes walking by. The womenswear part of the collection seemed all over the place and not too cohesive despite it’s binding “organic” theme.

I’d be remiss though if I didn’t mention the menswear part of the collection. There were some standout pieces that looked really promising.

  1. hey why is it that they do such a bad job herein India???/ did you know that they were a part of the ‘chamber le syndicale’ the one which includes all the great couture houses??? they were actually couture designers in Paris and have even got the ‘golden thimble’ award for best couturiers….and they have designed for the entire saudi royal family….y is it that they dont get much press n they do not so good collections when they have come here???

  2. I agree with Thia ! they actually did a pretty good job & i luv the cut out design patterns on the first picture ! very elegant & cute for summer ! i dont think we should be that critical of them… but its personal opinion so .. but i appreciate their work !
