ARMAAN AIMAN CREATED A FASHIONABLE ECLIPSE AT LAKMÉ FASHION WEEK WINTER/FESTIVE 2015
Their collection was called “Eclipse”, no doubt a very unconventional title indeed. But Aiman Agha and Armaan Randhawa ensured that there was no partial obscuring of the ensembles. Instead the duo used the inspiration as the focal point of their collection’s embellishments at Lakmé Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2015.

The silhouettes were rather minimal, primitive and brutal, the designers declared. There was a mix of hard and soft drapes, with visuals of dark and light. The colours worked around midnight blue, moss green, beige, white, and ox blood with the eclipse as the central motif. The eye-catchers were the blue embroidered dress teamed with white shirt and navy track pants.

Giving a slight semi-formal sporty touch, there was a maroon sweat shirt with fox and jelly fish embroidery worn with a draped beige dhoti skirt. The moon’s surface appeared on a white bomber teamed with olive deconstructed draped dress. Taking the inspiration further a deconstructed biker jacket looked great with a draped skirt, while a midnight blue string dress was splashed with jelly fish/moon embroidery and Kantha detailing on sleeves. For casual wear it was the totem shirt with jelly fish/moon embellishments matched with high waist ox blood pleated trousers.

The drawstring dress with minute machining, layered over dress, belted ox blood trench coat dress and the embroidered white shirt with a prominent pleated skirt were some of the more interesting options. The solitary men’s wear entry was restricted to a brown jacket with discreet detailing on sleeves and torso.

Sticking to a one colour palette and for visual ease interspersed with beige tones and stripes, the designer focused on black and ascertained the magic with a bucket load of patent surprises for his men’s and women’s wear range. The colour was selected so as to depict depth, silence and surrender to the dark of the night, which gave access to a wider horizon of elements.  Keeping the construction sharp with draped silhouettes along with eye-catching stripes and prints, Ujjawal gave the collection a clear vision.

The contrast of light and weight was the core of the line, which was seen in the harmony of sharper cuts and skilfully draped silhouettes. The delicate yet strong contrast of the sheer tunic worn over a shiny leather pencil skirt and a tunic with strategically placed stripes paired with black pants with grey cuff detailing.

The ensembles differentiated in terms of lengths and cuts, inspired by the army dress code. A variety of contemporary silhouettes compiled for the wardrobe consisted of essentials like pencil skirts, cropped double faced scuba jackets and sweatshirt along with ankle length felt coats. Cropped top with the word ‘SNOB’ embellished like a metallic tag was smartly paired with striped black trousers. The line also had a few men’s wear pieces including a knee length charcoal coat over basic formals, accessorised with a formal bag. Another white scuba hooded jacket with leather facing was a great variation for men’s formal.

SONAL VERMA’S REAL LIFE INSPIRED WOMEN’S WEAR COLLECTION “CONSCIOUS CHAOS” AT JABONG STAGE DURING LAKMÉ FASHION WEEK WINTER/FESTIVE 2015
The fusion of reality and myth was well conceptualized by Sonal Verma in her collection “Conscious Chaos” for her label ‘Rara Avis’ at Jabong Stage during Lakmé Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2015.

The ensembles were an array of straight and boxy garments emoting comfort with style. The palette summarized classic winter tones such as violet, deep grey and charcoal black defining the regularity and consistency of life. Fabrics were basic, yet statement making, as heavy cotton and leather; the brand’s favourites played the lead role in this fascinating line and were well amalgamated through embroidery and also as the main medium. Shearling fur for accessories and geometric shapes was quite an uptown urban hit, just fine for the mood of the weather.

A few attention grabbing garments were the little black embellished dress and brown pencil skirt highlighted with minimal embellishment paired with a loose black kaftan top. A metallic pink floor length jacket with a long slit skirt and basic cropped top, were all enhanced with statement neck pieces.

The designer portrayed a distinct side of the urban woman, which is dark, enigmatic and is a lot more than she is willing to show. The mind-boggling theme with perfect execution made a great impact and left the crowd wanting more. Sonal Verma’s “Conscious Chaos” for her label ‘Rara Avis’ brought to life her experiences, in the form of a unique futuristic collection.

ARJUN SALUJA’S LABEL ‘RISHTA’ PRESENTED AN EMOTIONALLY CHARGED COLLECTION CALLED “ABANDONED” AT LAKMÉ FASHION WEEK WINTER/FESTIVE 2015
Mumbai, 28 August, 2015: An emotionally charged collection called “Abandoned” by Arjun Saluja for his label ‘Rishta’ kept the audience engrossed at Lakmé Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2015.
Inspired by the word abandonment, Arjun brought it skilfully on the ramp as an inspiration for his collection. Looking at experiences to further highlight his apparel, it was rough edges, splatter of paint, broken blocks, grim and dust that was worked creatively into the line.

Using wool and leather as the prime canvas of communication for the collection, Arjun ensured they were turned into closely structured garments that reflected the theme of cocooning in a stylish manner. Since it was the aggression and transgression of street life that inspired Arjun, the creative chaos in the apparel reflected the “Abandoned” theme perfectly through the smudgy abstract prints on a grim grey, beige and black background.

With zip as the prime detailing, which appeared functional as well as decorative, the show opened with black leather zipped tunic and grey pants. Soon the mood was set for rouched zip cape dress, beige kurta with salwars, asymmetric zipped leather jacket with wide divided skirt and a grey shift with beaded detailing.  Overlapping pants, asymmetric zipped frock coat, an ox blood cascading lapel cape shirt, drop crotch pant and a double breast printed trench coat added to the drama of the collection. For a discreet shimmer, a gold patch added glitter to an off- centre coat dress, a metallic tail coat with draped pants and a floor length long sleeve gold chevron design androgynous gown. The solitary off-white stitched sari and zipped choli followed the theme of the collection.

Men’s wear was as per Arjun’s creative norms, when a pleated skirt, pant, waistcoat and jacket made a sedate entry, while a black double lapel biker hoodie was teamed with a low crotch trouser. Long coats appeared with leather pants and leather blousons gave wrap pants an interesting touch.

When it’s a conversation stopping and visually arresting line of clothes that one longs for; then Arjun Saluja’s “Abandoned” collection for his label ‘Rishta’ is something the fashion conscious will want to hang onto.
