New York Fashion Week S/S ’17

Untitled-1.jpg

TOM FORD
Tom Ford presented a collection that was anything but “spring-y” as this King of Fashion swapped the old fashion show business model for today’s “buy now, wear now” concept. He delivered a fall/winter collection of patchwork leathers, color-blocked furs, tweeds, and velvets perfect for cool weather element dressing. Menswear rounded out the collection giving buyers and customers alike access to what you’ve got to have NOW.

THAKOON
There wasn’t much that wasn’t AWESOME in the collection presented by Thakoon Panichgul last week.  An exciting presentation of rich fabrics in earth tones, there was no mistaking that fall 2016 was on display here. Great knits, strong shirts and jackets were layered over skirts, pants, dresses and jeans to create easy, wearable stylings that reflected his trademark utilitarian aesthetic.  This was sportswear with a bit of street creed at its best.
untitled-design-1

JASON WU
Beautifully tailored and delicately crafted, Jason Wu’s SS17 collection had a spring theme with floral appliqués and fine gauge, dusty colored lace dresses. But the pieces also had a nice transitional feel with merino pants and long sleeves. His sheer tops and dresses were sexy and sophisticated.  Soft draping, architectural cuts and skilled tailoring gave his dresses a thoroughly modern feel with many of the options so striking that you’d hardly be able to wear them twice without people noticing.
untitled-design

PRABAL GURUNG
The right soundtrack is very important for any runway show, and Gurung chose a recital of the poem”Phenomenal Woman” by the late great Maya Angelou. That was the way Prabal Gurung chose to conclude his spring runway show, and it seemed to speak as much to another upcoming collection of his as to his general outlook on the Gurung customer. That spirit was on hand – Gurung’s ladies were strong, confident and have places to go. This showed in the silhouettes her chose – like the luxe cashmere boucle sweater, yanked off one shoulder, trousers fluttering with a cuff of ostrich feathers and some umpteen stunner beaded gowns. The dresses, tops and skirts were slashed to reveal flashes of skin.
prabal-gurung

ALTUZARRA
Time to check Netflix or Hulu for the 1990 David Lynch film “Wild at Heart,” which stars a carefree Laura Dern and Nicolas Cage. Joseph Altuzarra had it on the brain when designing his spring collection. With David Lynch as inspiration, Altuzarra’s collection was all about romantic and kitschy garments with a little darker pulsing just under the surface. “I wanted the collection to feel happy, vibrant and erotically charged,” the designer wrote in his program, and the clothing obliged. A mix of flirty ruffle dresses in cherry prints and the tougher python print, hit the runway. There were Nipped jackets and slit skirts in gingham which seem perfect for lunching with the gals, and those teensy flouncy bralettes in crepe de chine paired with a ruffly skirt should be the uniform for your Bahama vacay.

JENNY PACKHAM
British designer Jenny Packham (she’s a favorite of the Royals) lined up all sorts of glamor in her Sunday afternoon show and within her 31-look collection, there was something for everybody. For rocker girls who party there was a formal gold illusion beaded top with wide-leg embellished trousers, or an uber blinged-out black and gold gown with wide sleeves. A surprising little floral embroidered tulle shorts outfit and a fiery red chiffon mini with a ruffled hem and blousy sleeves, was just the thing for jet-setting hippie girls. Mothers of the bride and maybe queen mothers will swoon for several satiny pale pink jobs along with an elegant, albeit restrained, auburn skirt and shirt ensemble. But we liked the last gown, an off-the-shoulder Calder-inspired print in black and ivory for the Duchess of Cambridge herself!
jenny packham.png

VICTORIA BECKHAM
At Victoria Beckham’s morning show it was all about clothes. Beckham, who is known for her bodycon silhouettes loosened up significantly with garments that skimmed gracefully rather than clung. Stars of the show included crushed summer-weight velvet numbers in lilac and white, and crinkly washed satin dresses that could easily go from day to night. Some ensembles had bra tops and paper bag waists along with matching soft bags that punctuated the ease of this lineup. Beckham herself called it, “a collection with an assured free spirit.”

ALEXANDER WANG
After his two fashion shows, Wang had a wall open up revealing a huge party space behind the runway, complete with the guilty pleasures we all share — a 7-Eleven truck filled with candy, chips and other munchies, a McDonald’s truck churning out fresh-cooked cheeseburgers and fries, a graffiti station and a D.J. spinning tunes and more. Prior to this massive party came his eponymous spring line, which featured menswear-inspired fabrics like the blue-striped shirt material used for strappy bralettes, paired with shorts and a pinstripe blazer with the sleeves ripped off. Sport was another key influence here, and some of the best looks were the gray scuba-like dresses with candy-colored trim. Post this the designer released a surprise collection – a special collaboration with Adidas featuring 84 unisex pieces of apparel and footwear which included hoodies, track jackets, shorts, and more.
alexander-wang

TOMMY HILFIGER
The designer’s concept this time was #tommynow – Tommy Hilfiger’s take on the “see now, buy now” phenomenon. The “wow” reaction had to do with the fact that Tommy didn’t just mount a runway show – he created a full carnival, complete with fried food, spinny rides and a Ferris wheel on a pier at South Street Seaport. Debuting the new “Tommy x Gigi” capsule collection was the runway hottie herself – Gigi Hadid. The looks were classic Tommy — midriff sailor shirts, fisherman’s knit sweater dresses, denim cutoffs, oversize satin bombers and a massive furry hoodie emblazoned with an anchor on front — all very nautical and hyper American, which Tommy does oh so well.
tommy hilfiger.jpg

 ZIMMERMANN
Australian designer Nicky Zimmermann’s  runway was set in a space where separate areas were cordoned off by opaque screens (to create an underground effect, we suspect) and was all about a hipster’s take on modern rumpled elegance. There were feminine frills, tiers, ruffles and lace galore in a palate of cream, lilac, steel blue and dusty peach. A fabulous bathrobe coat was done up in washed out florals, there were wide trousers in soft French stripes and patchwork checked silk blouses to suggest “rogue swagger,”. A swashbuckling pirate vibe ran as an undercurrent to all the romance here, heightened by plenty of corsetry. Ahoy!
zimmermann.jpg

ODAY SHAKAR
It was a welcome return for Oday Shakar, who on Friday morning returned to New York Fashion Week after a two-year hiatus. Shakar’s regal collection, meant to reflect his Arab-American heritage by fusing Western and Middle Eastern influences, was v-e-r-y good. From ultra bodycons in feather light micro suede to billowy glam kaftans, flowy chiffon and organza pleated gowns – it was all about Spring meets Fall. Lovely prints conjured ornate mosque windows and details included patterned metallic trims. Shakar used color judiciously — lots of white and pale blush here but when he went for it, he went big, as in the case of a vivid lemony gown and an ethereal number in teal. We’d hardly be surprised to see some starlet wearing Shakar’s work on a red carpet.
oday-shakar

DESIGUAL
Free-spirited global travelers who don’t hold back inspired Desigual’s lineup, which turned out to be, arguably, the most joyous romp of the first official day of New York Fashion Week. There were maxis in flowing textured fabrics, colorful, barely-there bikinis and loads of separates in between. Much of the collection boasted embroidery and embellishment galore, including beaded animals, plant and ethnic motifs. Models wore army green bomber jackets with flowers crawling up the sleeve, butterfly-embroidered rompers, fabulous denim jackets — some encrusted with rhinestones — vividly colored striped knits, peasant skirts and tie-dye looks. Add to the fun mix: sequin-encrusted berets, embroidered army caps, and even one topper that appeared to be a crown of butterflies.

Lakme Fashion Week Winter/Festive ’16

Untitled-1

Craving to know about all the action at the star-studded LFW? No worries, we’ve got you covered! Here’s everything you need to know about of Lakmé Fashion Week winter/festive 2016.

MANISH MALHOTRA
Manish Malhotra’s collection highlighted Indian craftsmanship combined with modern silhouettes for a stylish, young bridal entourage. Also seen, were the designer’s signature resham threadwork, clustered sequins and intricate hand embroidery on dramatic trails and off-shoulder capes, alongside floral motifs.
Manish-Malhotra-2

SABYASACHI CALCUTTA
The designer emphasized on shimmer. The collection comprised a lot of dusty, smoky, shimmery metallics along with strong contrasting jewel tones, like a deep emerald, a rich oxblood, a coffee maroon among others. The showstopper Kareena Kapoor Khan looked ethereal walking down the ramp showing off her oh-so-classy baby bump.

QUIRKBOX
Quirkbox’s collection, aptly titled ‘Madness’ had a clash of prints, colours and metal structures juxtaposed with relaxed silhouettes. We liked the live installation where polychromatic art was projected onto the garments. The attires were fun, youthful and offbeat. Only when the psychedelic projections were dimmed down did we notice that the garments had a whole lot of pop-art on them with metal details adding to the spirit of the collection.
Quirkbox-1

KA-SHA
Inspired by the aerial views of landscapes and by the geometry of organic natural objects, Karishma Shahani Khan’s label featured her trademark layered, soft silhouettes with plenty of tassels and tie and dye patterns. The colour palette included primary and secondary shades like tangerine, indigo, mustard, berry, purple and red. We liked the unusual spin on a sari paired with a blazer. The collection which was replete with cropped jackets and fun casuals was good enough to wear right off the ramp.
Ka-Sha-1.jpg

RAJESH PRATAP SINGH
Known for his minimalistic styling and intense construction, the designer revealed an interesting and innovative look for the coming festive season. Turning to his Indian roots for inspiration, Rajesh called his collection ‘The Punjabi Suit’ and gave it the high tech futuristic treatment. We liked the striped double-breasted jacket with salwars, capri pants, denim-waistcoats and striped dhoti pants.
Rajesh-Pratap-Singh-2

AARTIVIJAY GUPTA
The designer’s collection titled ‘Winter Garden’ was all about vintage florals and garden prints against organic fabrics. We liked the colour palette that moved from bright hues to rustic tones and finally earthy shades, as an ode to the passage of seasons.
Aartivijay-Gupta-2.jpg

ASHISH N SONI
Ashish N Soni offered an interplay of black and white prints on fitted yet boxy silhouettes. The oversized and exaggerated cuts took inspiration from the 70s, 80s, and 90s fashion. A stark contrast to the well-tailored clothes was the volumious hair, in the form of beehive blowouts and overly-done Monroe curls.
ashishnsoni2

SHANTANU AND NIKHIL
Shantanu and Nikhil’s collection that paid homage to India’s freedom fighters was naturally inspired by warriors and had a strong military aesthetic. However, the utilitarian details were balanced by an opulent silhouettes that had a regal air. We loved the short and structured jackets and also the menswear – which included draped kurtas, belted coats and jackets, Patiala pants and fur-lined shoes.
Shantanu-and-Nikhil-1.jpg

THE LABEL by RITU KUMAR
The Label’s vibe this season was sports-inspired fashion, without being athletic. The streetwear staples blended Indian textiles with western sensibilities. Pieces included the brand’s usuals — maxi dresses, skirts, blouses and off-shoulder tunics. Even though we like the athleisure trend that is all over the ramps, we appreciate that The Label went with a more feminine approach to sportswear.
Label-by-Ritu-Kumar-2

SIDDHARTH BANSAL
His colourful collection wove a story of its own through its vintage Indian prints and motifs inspired by folk tales. We like the trendy silhouettes including matching skirt-sets and off-shoulder maxis. We love the busy floral print and the colorful kitschy-er versions.
Siddhartha-Bansal.jpg

PAYAL KHANDWALA
Payal Khandwala’s “The New Emperor” was a fitting collection for the fiercely modern bride. From the power-oozing suits to the full lehengas, the jewel-toned collection had strong metallic accents throughout. We love the powerful lion motif that showed up on the jewellery and brocades used in the collection. It was also refreshing to see the dupatta replaced by her trademark capes.
Payal-Khandwala-1.jpg

SHIVAN AND NARRESH
Shivan and Narresh’s “Honeymoon Story was a beautiful take on resort wear. They used a rare technique called Skein work for their embellishments. Like last season, they found inspiration in Henri Rousseau’s work, and this time the results were oozing with luxe high fashion. We’re digging their 70s glamazon vibes!

“Ek chutki sindoor” the famous dialogue from the movie “Om Shanti Om” is as famous as the charisma of sindoori ‘the sacred red’, that has led the hue to dominate bridal trousseau wear since the inception of marriage as an institution.

No Hindu wedding is complete without this colour. We have curated shades of this colour in different saree fabrics that we have to offer.

Trends which made come back in 2016.

c.jpg

Trends often reflects the society. Important personalities in history have also had an impact on fashion, but no matter how competitive and innovative the Fashion industry is, it actually has to follow what is called the “Fashion Cycle”, which has no specific measurable time period. Some styles sustain for longer period of time. Some die out soon, and some styles come back years after they were declined.. So we can say that fashion changes with time and has always been evolving to fit the taste, lifestyle and demands of society. It is only natural that the new trends are introduced to the public gradually.

Take a look at these vintage styles from our mom’s generation that is making a comeback this season.

Flared bottoms

To ace this trend, all you need to do is raid your mom’s closet or trunks from years gone by and take out her flared bottoms. This ‘hippie’ style accentuates your figure like no other. You can pair them with high heels and off-shoulder tops and you are good to go. The perfect blend of quirk and bohemia, these vintage bottoms are comfortable and snug, and our moms loved wearing them a lot back in the 70s.flared bottoms

Big geek Glasses

The giant geeky glasses and tinted shades are making a huge comeback and how. Think Zeenat Aman and Dum Maaro Dum and you know what we are talking about. Ask your moms and they will tell you how big a rage they were back in their time. And luckily for us, this retro trend is back in vogue. Myriad shapes and different hues, you can pair these glasses with your wardrobe and look retro-chic.

High Waisted Denims

There is a reason why they are called the ‘mom jean’ because they love you back. The silhouette may be super unflattering but boy oh boy, are they snuggly? Your Pinterest feed is flooded with fashion bloggers giving a big thumbs up to this retro style. These high rise pants were a rage back in our moms’ time and it is here to stay.

high wasited.jpg

Fringes and Tassels

Tassel Fringe is in! Yes there is still plenty of 70s- and Western-inspired suede fringe walking down the runways and on the streets these days. Get your boho-chic on and flaunt your fringe in accessories and clothes.

fringes.jpg

Chokers

Revamp your wardrobe and give it that extra edge with beautifully embellished chokers. This trend has made a huge comeback since the 70’s and many Indian celebs have been sported flauting their necks in style. Your mom in the eighties was definitely donning these beauties and so should you.

chokers.jpg

Big Hoop Earrings

When it came to earrings back in the seventies, the bigger was definitely better. And this decade too, stands by it. Sneak into your mother’s jewellery box and gorge on your mom’s favourite gold hoop earrings.

loops.jpg

Block heels

If you are hunting for big chunky heels, you need to look no further. Prod your mother to take out her old platform heels for you. These may not be super comfortable but hey, who said vanity was easy.

block heels.jpg

Peasant Blouses

The flowy silhouette was everything that the seventies stood for; nonchalance and freedom. Our mothers will tell us that. The peasant blouses have made a huge comeback in 2016 as well. This hippie style is effortless, casual and modern.

peasant.jpg

Winged Liner

Made famous by Sharmila Tagore and Hema Malini, the winged liner was quite the rage back in our mother’s time. Before we even heard of the winged liner, our mothers were casually applying feline flicks on their eyes. Seventies, was the decade when the cat eye look was at its most dramatic. winged liner.jpg

Kaftans

This flowy garb from the seventies has returned to the fashion scene, like never before. You can wear it as a beach cover up or to a date and look flawlessly elegant. Or you can tweak your mother’s old Kaftans and give them a refreshing makeover.

Time to raid your mom’s closet and borrow those enviable pieces now.
