Lakme Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2017: Top 5 Looks

3

Having sifted through the usual winter party cocktail mix of faux fur, sequins, leather and big earrings, here are five new looks/trends that stood out from the recently concluded Lakme Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2017.

Volume With A Side Of More Volume
Cocktail dresses are fine, but something has to be said to said about a woman in high waist graphic pants and a high shine metallic blouse. 431-88 sent out their ‘Studio 5’4 top tucked into a 70s style pant. The tuck in did the trick. And here I have spent so many days trying to ‘balance’ a voluminous bottom with a fitted top.

The Sculpted Sari
A contemporary style story set in a vintage backdrop, Amit Aggarwal is one of the most lusted labels on these pages. This season, we can’t stop staring at his saris. His signature moulding and cording, architectural/industrial vibe, high sheen and structure in his fortified weaves, now to wait and watch when those saris and bodices make an appearance on the red carpet.

Sheer Bomber + Dress
At a time when your fashion maverick-ness is gauged by the art of layering, and a statement dress just isn’t enough, I am totally stealing Falguni & Shane Peacock’s sheer bomber + dress idea. I may have to replace the sequin on the dress with something less sparkly like a stripe but am definitely prioritizing the hunt for a sheer bomber. This is just the perfect antidote to the times I refused to ‘cover’ the dress with a jacket, and a stole just didn’t make the cut. (TBH I did go through a phase when I thought draping a shawl over dress was genius styling. Feel free to judge me, I am too!)

The Big Mix
Every few months I resolve to be that fashion forward person who effortlessly mixes textures and clashes prints. Then, I just go back to wearing blue jeans with anything and everything. I envy the ease with which Gen Next designers Saaksha & Kinni mixed a sequin spangled skirt with stripes and floral.

Tug Of Tassel
Favored by everyone alike, from emerging labels like Monika Nidhii (in picture) and doyens like Manish Malhotra, what’s Winter/Festive without some tassel or fringe-induced drama? PS: Whether or not I get my hands on a fringed skirt or blouse, am definitely not taking off my tassel earrings this entire season!

The Long And Short Of It

Waluscha and Kriti attended the Falguni and Shane Peacock show on Friday evening wearing creations by the husband wife duo. While the former picked a figure hugging gown that looked great on her, the latter picked a camisole style Zara mini that with its length threw proportions off on her.

Agree?

In Cannes primarily for a luncheon hosted by the British Film Institute, Amy also attended several other events while in the city. Of the looks she sported so far, her Plakinger print on print suit was my favorite. Between the two evening gown looks, preferred the Peacock one just a wee bit more. There was nothing wrong with the ruffled Azzi and Osta gown look, but the really snug fit at the bust just looked a bit awkward.

Which look of hers from the ones you see here was your favorite?

Shilpa visited the sets of Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa Finale to cheer on sis Shamita for the finale. At the taping, she was seen in one of Falguni & Shane Peacock‘s relatively simpler fare with Cartier jewels finising out the look.

Yep, she looked good!

Pooja attended day one of SIIMA wearing a strapless Falguni and Shane Peacock gown with earrings from Curio Cottage. While she looked nice, the length of the gown was a bit of an issue.

Like her red carpet look?
