Week: Fall/Winter 2013

March 19, 2013Posted in: Editor's PicksThis & That

It’s that time of the year again.

When the arrival of spring also signals the arrival of the country’s most stylish tastemakers, all under one roof!

 

 

 

 

From sleek bobs and pixie cuts to flattering slim silhouettes and cocoon kurtas – the 21stedition of the Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week saw the who’s who of the fashion industry working overtime, succeeding in giving us a series of truly memorable ensembles, on and off the ramp.

At once inspiring and exciting to gaze at – this 5 day long sartorial extravaganza turned into a seamless blend of uptown glamour and downtown chic.

The mere mention of handlooms makes our hearts skip a beat or two. It took a collaboration with the Ministry of Textiles and a few incredibly gorgeous Benarasi sareesto convince veteran designer duo Abraham & Thakore to make a few to-be brides deliriously happy!

Sponsored by the Development Commissioner – Handloom, Ministry of Textiles,Abraham & Thakore’s ‘Shaadi Redux’ was pretty much the stuff modern day bridal dreams are made of!

An obsession with fusion or rather finding a quietly quirky, contemporary counterpart was apparent in this collection that juxtaposed the flirty femininity of a angrakha tunic against the edgy luxury that comes with a pair of silken cropped pants. Subtle use of gold to liven up a black on black ensemble won us over while the vermillion red outfits had the steadfast traditionalists hooked!

And the gorgeous, super gorgeous basket weaves? Well, playing peek-a-boo just got a whole lot exciting!

Overwhelming red bindis, almost edible gold platform heels and glistening, glossy towel dried hair was what the models sported as they sashayed down the ramp, looking every bit royal!

If Abraham & Thakore was all about timeless bridal couture, Rajesh Pratap went aheadandpretty much gave us our winter wardrobe!

 

 

 

From opulent tweeds, decadent herringbone patterns and good old’ plaid – Pratap’sdesigns have had us looking forward to a wonderful winter this year ever since!

 


 

While imaginative use of zippers on classic silhouettes looked absolutely fetching, laser cuts and metallic details on rich overcoats had us planning our bonfire parties’ wardrobe!

Wondering how to survive the unrelenting summer? Well, sip on some martini (or your preferred poison) and begin to day dream.

Fall/Winter would be here soon and so will these stunning clothes!
