5 Things We Loved On Day 5 Lakme Fashion Week Winter Festive 2013
The genius that is Sabyasachi
Sabyasachi Mukherjee has set the bar even higher now for future grand finale designers. His royal collection was the perfect end to the 5-day fashion hoopla. Opulent and how, the style maestro paid tribute to the regal era of queens with transcending silhouettes that blended floral patterns, lace, embellishments, gold tapestry and gorgeous embroidery with breathtaking details, for a magnificently unique line that we could only expect from him. Some things that stood out from his fabulous collection were the half lace sarees paired with cool striped blouses as well his belted anarkalis and lehengas with heavy embellishments and floral prints.
The detailing of Archana Kochhar’s earthy collection
Archana Kochhar presented a spectacular collection in a warm colour palette of copper, red and brown. Loved the styling and the bandanas and nose-to-ear nathnis on the models. Super cute elephant prints were my fave part of her collection. Also, a kurta with adorable moustache buttons, a saree with a sequined belt at the waist and a sheer lehenga with bright chevron print pants underneath were some of the ultra fashionable things that caught our eye.
The goth glamour of House Of Chic
A mix of skulls, crosses, spikes, black ties and lace, the ‘Dark Angel’ collection was a fashionable twist to your dark fantasy. These chic and edgy accessories would be great when paired with something girly or simple to really add some drama. Loved the goth twist of the statement necklaces, the bedazzled skull-shaped clutch and the jewelled body vest on showstopper Pooja Gupta.
The colourful kitschiness of Samor
The sky was the limit for this mother-daughter designer duo as they used their collection as a canvas to sketch, smear and streak a multitude of exotic birds in vibrant, jewelled colours. In modern drapes and cuts, it was a funky line that totally caught our attention. Don’t forget to notice those ultra trendy briefcase bags and colourful pom poms on the shoes.
Perky pastels by Anushree Reddy
Titled ‘Tantrum Bride’, Anushree Reddy’s dazzling collection for a glamorous bride to be was dominated by stunning Indianwear in beautiful pastel shades of blue, pink, green and peach with shiney zardozi work and embellishments. With graceful and flowing silhouettes in luxurious silks and nets, the designs were a dream. For an ethereal wedding wardrobe, you won’t need to look further than this traditionally chic line.
