LFW Winter/Festive: Ritu Kumar
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?

am not liking the lehengas much..!! the western ones are quite interesting yet wearable.. but luurrve the grey-green dress – first one in the bottom row..
I don’t even like the lehengas
Meh to all of them. Especially the first row, nothing pops out and says ‘Ritu Kumar’.
I dunno abt the rest but I’m head over heels for the Peach-white-black lehenga and the grey green dress(the head piece is a little weird though) ! Every time i see a Lable dress with polka dots I’m amazed at how beautiful they look!! In spite of not being a big fan of polka dots!!(i mean come on!)
