This season of S/R 2017 designers Sailesh Singhania and Vineet-Rahul among others brought along a whole lot of drama in sleeves with ruffles, billows and lacy trims, especially in the GenNext show. From capped to bell-shaped, sleeves are getting in on the action and it’s about time.
Designers KA-SHA and Jayanti Reddy got playful with their clothing line. They introduced fun frills and ruffles to sari borders and blouses.
Add some swish and flicker to your celebration habit in loyal retro style. Beaded borders, draped silhouettes, glittery blouses and cocktail attire were present at this season of LFW SR 17.
Designers like Eleven Eleven, Abraham & Thakore, Chaman Siju from Artisans of Kutch and Rajesh Pratap Singh ensured that some funk was added to the handloom as well. Organic cotton, handwoven, natural-dyed materials in indigo and white stripes were worn with dramatic, creative blouses with stylish fabric detailing and cold-shoulder silhouettes.
At times we like to stick to worldly hues in pleasing fabrics and monotone looks as summer sobers a palette. Roomy trousers, layering and a mix-and-match of opposite shades of neutrals make for a worldly character matter for a boys-to-men brigade. Light trenches and jackets were a favorite for all subtle summer hues this season. (left to right) Tarun Tahiliani, Galang Gabaan, Antar Agni, Eleven Eleven, Anuj Bhutani, Raamz, Gaurav Khanijo.
Designers, Tarun Tahiliani, Anushree Reddy, Poochki used Fauna-inspired prints on sheer, muted fabrics to put a whimsical spin on airy silhouettes. Floral appliqués and stripes poured in by the dozens on trench coats, belted tunics and drawstring dresses.
WHITE AND GOLD LOVE
Summer whites are always a winning combination, but this season they come paired with some gold, striking the right balance between austere and ornate. Perfect for that destination wedding or even a festive brunch, take a cue from these outfits by (left to right) Tarun Tahiliani, Gaurang Shah, Abha Choudhary.
If you've been keeping a tab on the trends, you'd agree that metallic skirts and pants have been in the limelight on the runway. Shweta Kapoor, Ishita Mangal, Amit Aggarwal and others proved that metallic garments could still get the party started!
Embellishments played a major role throughout the showcases at Lakme Fashion Week Summer Resort 2017. Designers also used intricate glass beadwork in vibrant tribal tones and metallic embellishments.
SAREE WITH A TWIST
Saree’s took a centerstage with new drape experimentations along with an unique approach to blouses. Indigene, Divya Sheth, I Was A Sari and GenNext designer Soumodeep Dutta made it possible to wear a saree with a whole new twist.
Cutworks have been popular for decades. A typical Indian wear is incomplete without the cutwork masterpiece. Rara Avis, Divya Sheth and Eka displayed cutworks which beautifully assimilated in modern styles.
Inspired from the tropical beauties, this season designers like Farah Sanjana and Nishka Lulla have made printed jackets. Botanical prints and florals in satin jackets looked flowy and sumptuous on the ramp.
