Honest opinion about the Indian Fashion Scenario

Lakme India Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2010 – Day 2

Posted by Indian Fashion Police on September 19, 2010

Day 2 began with the display of emerging designer’s creations and ended with Ritu Kumar’s ‘Label’ creations.

Amalraj Sengupta

Amalraj Sengupta’s collection titled ‘From the ruins of World War 2’ was an interesting combination of tie & dye with gloomy colours. Aimed at being perfect for winter wear, the collection consisted of dresses both long & short ones, skirts, corset, formal shirts, trousers, vests for men………………..apart from tie & dye there was a hint of crochets. The designs were unique but I felt it to be a bit incomplete. Maybe it could use some bling and accessories to bring out the best in those clothes. Overall the clothes were wearable but they were very plain. My verdict :  people who prefer understated styling might go in for his clothes………………but the collection needed some jazz.

Harangad Singh

Harangad Singh’s Collection titled ‘Khumor’ which means deep ecstasy in Persian had loads of warm colours and aimed at cocktail wear outfits. Harangad played with loads of drapes and the detail work were minimal…………….but I wished he would have added some more glitter……………………come on, cocktail dresses are meant t be a bit of glitter. I loved the fabric and the colours used by him………………but some pieces were too, too plain……………..how about styling it in a great manner with some jewellery and clutch purses to complete the entire look. I think that might have helped. My verdict : Nice but with more sequin detailing to be included.

Shrivan Bhatia & Naresh Kukreja

The duo presented their Resort 2011 collection ‘Gynoid’ which consisted of swimwear, beachwear, jackets, casual clothes……………….the assymetrical cuts and lines made an impact with excellent styling. Loved the head gear………..that went well with the outfits plus the jewellery, bags and shoes. The colours were more towards cool shades. But did not like the saree at all…………..maybe due to improper styling. My say about this collection : Smart, original and different, need more of shorts and pants. But did not find some pieces wearable.

Babita Malkani

Ms. Malkani’s new collection titled as ‘Ravishing Earth’ has been inspired by mountainous province of Turkey and Bhutan. The styling seemed like Greek inspired with the one shoulder dresses and hair tied up loosely into a bun. The focus was drapes, cool colours like blue was blended with brown…………….short dresses, long dresses, harem pants, tops were in the collection. Pooja Batra walked down the runway as show-stopper for Babita. My verdict :  Some outfits were well fit and beautiful………………but others needed more definition. Few outfits had too much of mix & matched fabrics…….end result was too much of hotchpotch.

 

Vivek Karunakaran

Vivek Karunakaran’s new collection named ‘ Urban Vagabond’ had loads of greys in silk fabric…………….the outfits were fit for winter wear. Ballerina dresses, skirts, corset, pants, tops………….the collection had clothes for men as well as women. Crimson and purple colours were also included, but some outfits were loose fits and needed so more finishing. Found some pieces too dull and plain…………….needed more bling and better styling. My verdict : some pieces were creative but few did not seem very wearable. The checks were too loud too……………..blacks were too gloomy.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Ritu Kumar – LABEL

Ritu Kumar’s ‘LABEL’ also brainchild of  her son Amrish Kumar showcased their recent collection ‘Summer Constellations’ dedicated to the upcoming hot Indian summers. Mulmul, silks, Georgette and crepe fabrics were the centre point of the collection with amazing prints……………and loads of colour. It was pleasantly better than their previous for Autumn/Winter. Gowns, funky summer dresses, asymmetrical tunics, pants………..though few pieces in the collection needed more finishing. My Verdict : wearable outfits, lovely colours and newer designs………..though some pieces would look better if worn separately.
