Closing out LFW was Malini Ramani. Like her last collection, the Gypsy collection inspired by Lakme’s winter color palette was also divided into four themes.
Mirror and shell embroidery on black and tie and dye fabric dominated the first segment, Mystery. Bliss consisted of minis, maxis covered in colorful prints that from far looked like intricate embroidery. Cosmic went more tribal in nature featuring feathers, shell and coin embellishments. The last one, Nirvana, was presented by the Lakme models Lisa, Amrit, Indrani and Shraddha who wore black and red creations that were heavy on shell, mirror and tassel work.
The designer didn’t foray far from her usual offerings of maxis, full-sleeve dresses, sarongs but the fact that Malini sticks to her signature design aesthetic without letting it go stale always stands out. Love the infusion of her inspiration (the world) into this line.
