Bag Spotting


Neither fond of the bag nor the clutch, but especially dislike the bag. The way Ms Khan has worn it doesn’t help it’s cause much either.

Lakme Fashion Week Spring 2010: Day Four


In case you are wondering what happened to day three, it was a menswear-centric day and we’ll be coming back to it after we finish womenswear.

Imcha Imchen, Spring Summer 2010, Lakme Fashion Week


Taking inspiration from his home state’s attire, Nagaland born Imcha Imchen presented a collection of men and women’s wear in organic cotton and silk with vegetable dyes. ‘How Many Stories Can You See On My Face’ comprised of block print/double layered tops, draped dresses for women with pleated shirts and wrap around skirts for men.

On day two, we saw the innovative ‘Button Masala’ collection by Anuj Sharma. Day four also presented another innovation collection by Neha Agarwal. ‘I Stole From Him’ was rooted in two basic pieces: a long shift dress and an oversized net jacket. Neha combined several different fabrics like voile, silk, chiffon and net and came up with multiple creations that all stuck to the root theme of the one dress and one jacket. I, for one, loved the whole collection.

Myoho By Kiran and Megha Spring Summer 2010, Lakme Fashion Week

‘Breathe’, the collection by Kiran and Megha, consisted of smock dresses and pinafores in beige, white and black. Most of the dresses had a contrasting gold hemline or an underlying layer in a different print to form a contrast with the top one. The flowy silhouettes will appeal to a lot especially when you think of the hot summers that we sometimes go through.

Virtues by Ashish, Viral and Vikrant, Spring Summer 2010, Lakme Fashion Week


Virtues also presented a Bridal collection, ‘Forever’, but instead of using bold colors that we normally associate marriage festivites with, the designers went with a more muted color palette that consisted of sea green, beige and soft pinks. What I liked about this collection was the use of gold without it feeling blingy but what I didn’t like about this collection was the tailoring on some of the cholis, very ill-fitted on the models.

Lakme Fashion Week Spring 2010: Day Four

Anupama Dayal Spring 2010, Lakme Fashion Week

Anupama Dayal’s collection “Joie” was joyful indeed with all the colors that she used….electric blue, cobalt, light green, chocolate brown, red and oranges in fabrics like silks, voiles, tissues and satins. There were some playful dresses, colorful tunics and interesting prints. The ones that stood out for me though were the colorful embellished dresses.

Gauri And Nainika Spring 2010, Lakme Fashion Week

A pinch of Giambattista Valli, a bit of Dolce & Gabanna and smattering of Valentino is what immediately came to mind when I saw this latest offering from Gauri and Nainika. Sticking to their niche, the ladies served up more evening-wear albeit with shorter hemlines and more corseted silhouettes in a palette that comprised solely of red, black and white. The bows and roses were dramatic and the gowns and their styling begged to be tagged ‘old-world’ with that unmistakable vintage charm…all of which that I would’ve whole-heartedly appreciated had I been blind to the International runways. It’s a losing battle I know because it’s only a matter of time before we see these gowns on the red carpet and on many, many tinsel town ladies.

Mandira Wirk Spring 2010, Lakme Fashion Week

Mandira Wirk’s collection called “Humble Luxe” had a color palette of light browns, faded rust and fabrics like linen, silk and jersey and the pieces seemed very summery and easy. She quite liberally used ‘zippers’ in her clothes that just weren’t functional but also added visual interest to the clothes, quite on the trend! We are thankful that the collection wasn’t just about draped dresses because while they look interesting for about a minute, they get ‘tired’ mighty quick. The sheer tea-stained dresses with smudged coral/rust print had me looking forward to Spring. Even if it has to be the next one.

Rehane Spring 2010, Lakme Fashion Week

Rehane’s collection was, and I hate myself for using the word, ‘cute’. Girly-girl dresses, shorts, feminine tops in fabrics like silk, organza and chiffon and colors like yellow, cream and red all made up her collection. The use of rose motif was interesting, am glad she didn’t overwhelm the garments with all that print and embroidery. A collection that was definitely sweet without being sickly so.

Ditto


Who do you think wore this dress better, Anushka who kept her look rather simple or Queenie who added some bling and a belt to her’s…?

In Swapnil Shinde


After walking Swapnil Shinde’s Spring 2010 runway, Urvashi must’ve really fallen in love with the collection and absolutely had to have one of the gowns for herself, well before anyone else… just guessing here! :)

Like her look from the party or wish she had worn the gold gown she wore on the runway instead?
