WLIFW Spring 09: The Round-Up (Part One)

The theme of Anjana Bhargav’s collection was ‘Structured Deconstruction’ and was evident throughout the collection. She played with drapes, cuts, silhouettes, hem-lines… The color palette was too somber for a spring collection (for us anyway) but there were certain pieces with metallic influences that were very well crafted.

Barring a few pieces, this collection wasn’t very memorable.

High-waisted wide-leg pants, very feminine blouses, sharp pencil skirts and grecian dresses made up the collection. The color palette stayed mostly muted with a burst of orange or blue here and there. The more abstract and busy prints weren’t so impressive. And while florals continued to make their presence felt, the duo did use them well!

The separates were well crafted but it is their evening wear that no doubt will end up on many a celebrity in the coming days. Sure, its nothing that we haven’t seen before but perhaps thats where their forte lies, in safe, classic evening wear silhouettes…

WLIFW: Manoviraj Khosla


There was dressed up denim and multi-color palette, there were embellishments, prints and interesting cuts, and then there were boots. Boots with tassles, cowboy boots! There was a hint of shimmer here and there and structured jackets were the norm.

Manoviraj Khosla’s collection wasn’t for the straitjacketed-banker-men-dress-in-black demographic for sure!


Day 1: Manoviraj Khosla


Two words sum up Manoviraj’s collection- Neon, Fun. Oh, so fun!

I never know what to expect from a menswear collection, much less review it! But this collection just made it so easy! It was every metrosexual man’s dream come true. Greens, pinks, reds, peaches, yellows, hints of neon, were what made up the color palette of this collection. There were structured jackets in print and color, there were capris and cropped pants accented, again, with color! And then there were these shirts with prints and appliqués..

Ok, so some pieces were outlandish, but they were statement making creative pieces that every designer does for his collection.

Some of those shirts and jackets were very good and I totally see hip, confident men making a beeline for them!
