My feelings for this collection were as mixed as the clothes shown as part of it. Ritu Kumar’s The Label (designed by Amrish Kumar) showcased dresses, separates and Indian-wear (like those lehengas) with a more contemporary twist.
The pieces that had Indian influences worked really well and, those lehengas (second row, right and extreme right images) especially stood out. The rest though were quite humdrum. This prêt line is as commercial as it gets with pieces ready to be worn right off the runway and we have no doubts they’d sell… But as far as the “design” part of it goes, there was nothing new on offer here. Did I already say humdrum?
