Thursday, 2 July 2015

Hey Peeps, the birthday month of the blog turned out to be full of adventures and mishaps. Lots to do, Lets get cracking. My sincere apologies; continuing with the last leg of the LIFW.

AARTIVIJAY GUPTA WAS INSPIRED BY THE ART OF MOSAIC GLASS FOR HER COLLECTION AT LAKMÉ FASHION WEEK SUMMER/RESORT 2015

Mumbai, 22 March, 2015: She has always created amazing prints whether it was doodles, legendary Indian heroes or French couture images. For Lakmé Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2015 Aartivijay Gupta brought a colourful dimension to her creations with “My World of Glass” inspired by mosaic.
Her story of mosaic art revolved around nature with images of parrots, fish, birds, houses, trees and peacocks prancing on her basic silhouettes in all their vibrant finery. Bringing in a touch of Moroccan mosaic tea glasses with teal and gold art, Aarti used it for her soft organza ensembles.
To match the beauty of her inspiration, Aarti’s silhouettes were quaint. Garments were shaped like porcelain jars, rectangular wall hangings, cylindrical bottles or just lean and long shapes.
The designer showcased five key looks that were utterly feminine with stylish mass appeal. The sheath dress emblazoned with a parrot mosaic, skirt and Tee, cape tops with pencil skirts, cute ‘A’ line dresses and the glamorous glass organza maxi with gold nakshi work.

A combination of silk and glass organza was a constant for the collection as the sheer fragile fabric either covered the dresses or peeped cutely from under the hemlines. The printed pencil skirt looked sleek with a pure white blouse; while the long sleeve top and matching pants were a colourful addition. A long coat with an organza skirt/dress, bustier with pencil skirt, shorts matched with peplum jacket and a maxi with bird mosaic added to the look. Sack dresses had organza insets, and the empire line dress with a sheer fabric for the skirt was a feminine addition.
The solitary men’s wear entry further established the mood of the show with a sharply cut jacket and Bermudas with a floral print.
Each garment was an eye-catcher, which made Aartivijay Gupta’s “My World of Glass” a collection that every trend setter would want to be part of.

Bringing a Japanese flavour to men’s and women’s wear Kunal Anil Tanna’s “Ume Matsuri” (plum blossoms) collection at Lakmé Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2015 was like a breath of fresh summer breeze.
Based on traditional Japanese festivals when the plum and cherry blossoms come to life, Kunal used the techniques from that country for the tie and dye effects, which featured Hajime, Arasi Kumo etc. for airy summer voiles and textured cottons.
The silhouettes followed the Japanese inspirations for men’s wear as Kimono wrap tunics and pleated Hakkama pants revealed a comfy relaxed line. Detailing started with ornamentation by Kanzashi – the Japanese way of making fabric flowers for lapel pins, brooches, and boutonnieres etc.

Couching and mesh textures appeared regularly with wrap around belts replacing the Obe. Trousers were ankle length with double pleats on the hem, while a waist coat kurta with pleated ankle pants, collarless jacket, and fake waistcoat-shirt, double layered jacket, were interesting innovations.
Kimono overlaps gave tunics a dashing appearance; while wooden buttons were constant through the collection. The laser cut layered, quilting and pocket detailing were high points of the collection. Extended fold over lapels; graded Hajime touches, calf length gathered or box pleated Hakkama pants and cuff detailing completed the look.
For the women’s wear it was the bell sleeves top with sumo skirt, draped kurta in chiffon and silk, the high waist wide pants and blouse, maroon kimono top with pants, jumpsuit in net/silk and the pleated comfy wide pants teamed with a cropped bell sleeves top, followed the theme perfectly.
The colours matched the mood with plum, burgundy, and grape, teamed with shades of beige and soft blue.

With unconventional graphics like tigers or flying birds, Kunal added a new dimension to his style statements. For some out-of-the-box detailing there were panels and pleats employed as stitch techniques to highlight the texture of the garments.
From the Lakmé Fashion Week Gen Next show of 2006, Kunal has moved rapidly up the fashion ladder having worked in over 150 ad films, Bollywood films and is the couturier for several stars of the big screen.

Back zippered kurtas and dhoti pants were ideal fashion options. Slogans like "Home is where your clothes are" livened up the print scene on Tees; while the blousons and cropped jackets were in varied prints.
For western wear Kunal also had the Kadi jacket and then introduced the T-shirt kurta besides some trendy shirts, blousons, light weight summer overcoats and stylish aviation hoodies.
Draped pants, baggy gathered breeches, one button jackets, printed sarongs with Tees, tonal embroidery for kurtas, Sherwani and bundgala with metallic embellishments completed the look. The reflective fabrics added to the military styled kurtas with epaulets and patch pockets; while muscle sleeve shirts were worn over kurtas.
The group of sherwanis with metallic detailing down the front, or sides, gave men's wear a festive feel.

Specially developed fabrics and a clever play with embroidery for men's semi-formal wear completed the look. The colour story was summer specific with ox blood, vanilla, mint, dense green, some cool lemon and yellow along with warm purple and brown.
Kunal did not stop at just clothes but completed the collection with specially designed shoes that ranged from comfy monk straps, espadrilles, ideal for the heat and stylish lace-ups along with sharp toed styles, which will go well with Indian, western as well as fusion men's wear.
The show stopper was the very rugged, bearded, Shahid Kapoor who marched down the runway in a 3D fully encrusted shimmering kurta with dhoti salwars.
For the 21st century male who wants to experiment with his sartorial preferences then Kunal Rawal promises to dress him in western and ethnic wear that will make him the talk of the town.

Rimi Nayak, Ken Ferns and Surya Sarkar showcased their stylish visions at Lakmé Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2015

DESIGNER RIMI NAYAK DELVED INTO UNCHARTERED TERRITORY AT LAKMÉ FASHION WEEK SUMMER/RESORT 2015.

Mumbai 21 March, 2015: Universally inspired, Rimi Nayak made travel around the globe more chic with her collection 'Unchartered Land' at Lakmé Fashion Week Summer/ Resort 2015.
Cartography was the main idea reflected on the clothing line as the models strutted their stuff down the runway. Cartography, the art of making maps, is an age-old technique, which was represented in the collection graphically and through a plethora of interwoven webs like intricate surface embellishment techniques, that provided a base for the theme.
RIMI NAYAK
http://aquaintperspective.blogspot.in/,RIMI NAYAK

The print was exclusively designed with a Bengali typeface and designer Rimi Nayak developed the graphical artwork.  The exclusive design pattern and characteristics were combined into bold colour palettes and geometrical shapes to give birth to an abstract collection of maps.
 Classy silhouettes came alive in various hand-crafted techniques like batik, cutwork, thread-texturing and hand-embroidery. Long resort-wear dresses, draped jackets, summer tunics, trousers and tops along with flared gowns formed the necessities of the silhouettes. Fabrics like georgette, crépe, handloom cotton along with satin in shades of blue and green were prominently featured in the collection.
A spectacular drape that impressed was the sky blue suit dress that featured full sleeves and pockets. Apparel that stood out was the boldly coloured sari with a navy blue base and mottled pallav.
'Unchartered Land' by Rimi Nayak made clear yet again as to who runs the world? Girls!

KEN FERNS INDUCED A PSYCHEDELIC TRANCE AT LAKMÉ FASHION WEEK SUMMER/RESORT 2015
One of India's popular young designer, Ken Ferns took the awaiting audience on a journey of hallucinations, visions and broken memories with his collection, poetically called 'The Eternal Sleep'.
Ken's collection was a dream-like interpretation that radiated a psychotropic vibe through the course of the show. He conceptualised the flower, Poppy from colour to cut. Poppies have been used as a symbol of sleep, peace and even death through the ages. In ancient Greek and Roman myths, poppies were used as offerings to the dead and were placed on tombstones to symbolize eternal sleep.
KEN FERNS

Using a combination of flowing textured materials like luxurious crépe, georgette, organza and specially sourced and imported suiting fabrics, the designer breathed life into the flower like qualities of the collection.
Ken incorporated a monochromatic feel to his collection with tones like black, white, poppy red and blue. A particular garment that was interestingly constructed had the cut-out sweetheart corset conjoined with a pencil skirt and a sheer cropped jacket draped over it. Here was contemporary fashion at its best.
KEN FERNS

Chic and contemporary, 'The Eternal Sleep' by Ken Ferns was ideal for any fashion conscious individual who wanted to make a statement that was unique.

SURYA SARKAR OPENED THE GATES TO 'HEAVEN'S GARDEN' AT LAKMÉ FASHION WEEK SUMMER/RESORT 2015.
Designer Surya Sarkar tapped into the illusions of one's mind with his latest collection 'Heaven's Garden' at Lakmé Fashion Week Summer/ Resort 2015.
Surya believed that heaven in reality is the imagination of an extreme illusion and made up differently for different people. His interpretation of heaven included tons of white and flowing garments symbolising a pureness that was unreal.
Graceful and poised, the collection was a symbol of hope and acceptance and gave an angel-like quality to the entire line. The garments had a timeless silhouette that flattered women and their bodies.
SURYA SARKAR
