URVASHI JONEJA’S ‘CONCRETE’’ COLLECTION GAVE A STRONG FASHION MESSAGE AT LAKMÉ FASHION WEEK WINTER/FESTIVE 2017
There was a strong, social, cultural and environmental message from Urvashi Joneja’s ‘Concrete’ collection at Lakmé Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2017.
Varying aspects of progress inspired the prints and textures. The building blocks, staircases and wrecking of the environment were adequately highlighted through the garments. These prints and embellishments appeared on Urvashi’s feminine contemporary silhouettes that have always been the hallmark of the brand.
The silhouettes ranged from off-shoulder tops, long jackets, asymmetrical peplum blouses, long flowing dresses and midis with plunging necklines and ruffle detailing. The outfits had 3D embellished flowers surfaced innovatively and vibrant prints depicted fun and modernity.
The colour palette was playful and pleasant; it had shades of magenta, military green, teal, tangerine, Marsala and a hint of monochrome.
Actor/Singer Sarah Jane Dias glided down the runway vivaciously in a floor-length printed gown with criss-cross-back straps and pocket detailing that looked strikingly free spirited and lively.
The look created by Lakmé Makeup Expert, Donald Simrock, had a bold metallic purple that was created almost as a new interpretation of the coloured graphic liner.
When it comes to fashion that is not only stylish but presents a lasting social message Urvashi Joneja’s ‘Concrete’ collection was an ideal offering for the environmentally aware dressers.
SAHIL ANEJA DISPLAYED HIS COLLECTION ‘RESTRICTED 2.0’ INSPIRED BY EDGY STREET SIGNS AT LAKMÉ FASHION WEEK WINTER/FESTIVE 2017
Sahil Aneja, a bespoke men’s wear designer, has carved a niche for himself by reinventing fashion norms for Indian men. His collection ‘Restricted 2.0’, showcased at Lakmé Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2017 was what the modern Indian dresser needs for the coming season.
The designer presented a minimal, chic line influenced by street signs that were intelligently projected on the garments. The ensembles varied from classic suits to well-tailored outfits. Jackets, leather vests with metallic zipper detailing, over-coats and long shirts with cowls had slogans printed creatively. This complete package of creativity definitely upgraded the style quotient of this collection.
Interesting fabrics such as flannel, leather, felt wool and knits were used to create variations with textures to show a different dimension. Charcoal black, smoke grey, maroon, olive and mint green, scarlet and violet created the perfect palette that blended instantly with the modernized theme and made it an instant success. The audacious silhouettes were an attempt to show the unconventional side of the generally worn mundane apparels.
The designer’s vision was to bridge the gap and construct globally acknowledged attires that were impactful and identified with the masses.
Sahil Aneja’s latest collection ‘Restricted 2.0’ delivered a well-balanced presentation, which raised the bar for men’s wear in terms of precision and originality and left a lasting impression.
