Day 3: Gauri And Nainika

0

Gauri And Nainika’s collection was called ‘A Closet Full of Dresses’ and was really quirky and full of bright contrasting colors! The voluminous, balloon dresses had to be the most fun! Almost makes you want to go swing dancing…

The cuts were simple, prints were uncomplicated and the design was no-fuss!

Spotlight: Circa Ceramics

0

Nothing makes me happier than drinking well made coffee in a cheery mug first thing in the morning and then proceed to properly wake up! And I have had favorite mugs, right since, forever! What can I say, they make me happy!

When I was just looking around today, Circa Ceramics caught my eye. The designers behind Circa Ceramics, Andy Witt & Nancy Pizarro, know exactly how to lace color, fun and pop-culture onto functional pieces! I absolutely adore the pop images of skulls, bikes, hands, typewriters, chairs and more on their bowls, mugs etc!

Just take a look at some of my picks from their collection below. They are super fun!

NY Fashion Week: Sabyasachi

6

So you all know that while Fashion Week is on in India, there’s Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week happening in New York, right at the same time. And today Sabyasachi was showing! Oh, I was so excited, thats one designer I was absolutely looking forward to seeing, so imagine my surprise when I acually saw the collection!

I am devastated. It felt as if all that is trademark Sabyasachi was missing and that might have been a good thing if he was trying to move away from the cliché but instead, it just felt lacking! I know am being harsh, but from a designer with his calibre, expectations always tend to run impossibly high.

Not all was bad though. Some pieces were exceptional.

But all in all, was left wondering, is this it? This can’t be it! Is it?

Day 3: Risa By Abhijeet Khanna

0

Risa by Abhijeet Khanna, a collection, which was dominated by rich technicolor palette and a play on the flower motifs as well as jazzing up the classic argyle patterns! Some individual pieces worked really well, like, day dresses in deep reds, a dress in olive with metallic sheen to it, a simple dress with little floral detailing and short cropped jackets!

As for the others, not as much. The collection overall wasn’t just as impressive as other contendors had been. It seemed as if the designer got a little carried away with the whole ‘theme’ in its entirety, instead of interpretting it!

Am I being too tough? I think not.

Day 3: Rabani And Rakha

0

The collection put forth by Rabani and Rakha was exquisite and quite timeless. The color palette stayed dominated by creams, whites and beiges though they did have a sequence in black and another one with more metallic mauve’ish hues. My favorite in this collection had to be the saris. The intricate and often elaborate detailing and craftsmanship on those saris just pops at you. And the best part is, they are quite timeless in their appeal, so you know, when you buy something like this, its going to be around for a long, long time! Forget the saris, they even managed to pull of some long evening gowns with just the right amount of work, to give it, its healthy dose of chic! And that doesn’t happen everyday!
