Summer collections at fashion week are always special. The light fabrics, flowing silhouettes, reinvented florals and bright shades leave you wishing the next few months would just fly by, transporting you magically in May. This season at Amazon India Fashion Week felt exactly like that.
While there was no shortage of summer dresses and skirts, lightweight trousers and tops were presented aplenty. It’s always interesting to see how designers infuse a sari for your summer wardrobe. Turns out, this season saw quite a few.
Take a look at our favorites and yes, there are picks for summer weddings too!
You can always count on Rimzim Dadu for a cool, structured saree. This one is as easy to wear as a gown, but with that textured pallu, you can certainly pass it off as traditional formal.
JJ Valaya completed 25 years in the industry with this opulent collection and pretty much every piece was genius. The coming together of this anarkali and saree is definitely something we’re going to try!
Rina Dhaka’s Explorer collection for Spring Summer 2018 came with one pristine white saree that has to be the sexiest piece we’ve seen all week. With a bikini top as a blouse and a white shirt layered on, this one is as effortless and comfortable as it gets.
It seems that capes and jackets over sarees aren’t going anywhere soon. The trend calls for a simple saree layered on with an embellished jacket or cape – making it go from day to night with one simple addition.
Abraham & Thakore
If you had to interpret the formal, business suit into a saree, this is what it would look like. Monochrome with a pinstriped jacket as an addition, this Abraham & Thakore saree means serious business.
Anju Modi’s inspiration for this collection comes from India’s Swadeshi Movement. Organic shades of indigo and mustard were seen through the collection and our favorite has got to be this easy, layered saree.
Immortelle by Charu Parashar was a collection that came full of French blooms. With champagne pink as a base, the collection featured a stitched saree with trousers in the color, instead of a petticoat, which really makes a world of a difference!
