Rajat K Tangri and Sailex NG Presented a Variety of Looks at Lakmé Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2012
Rajat K Tangri Presented a Vintage Inspired Men’s and Women’s Collection at Lakmé Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2012
Mumbai, Tuesday, August 07, 2012: Rajat K Tangri’s collection called “La Cosa Nostra” at Lakmé Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2012 had soft silhouettes but with dark overtones of the baroque era and was a veritable feast for the eyes on the ramp.
Rajat presented an elegant stylish men’s and women’s look for the coming season in rich fabrics especially woven from Italy and Japan. Shades of nude and beige accompanied by tones of teal, verdant green, ink and black were highlighted with touches of metallic gold.
Embroidery was luxurious with 3D metallic and crystal work inspired by the Art Deco jewellery which complemented the clothes perfectly in a tonal form. Fabric options moved from jersey, chiffon, satin, tulle, georgette to leather, and textured materials.
Women’s wear revolved around stately gowns, stylish dresses, well-tailored suits and jumpsuits. Peplums appeared for dresses, sequin sheeting added intense glitter, while tonal embroidery highlighted shoulders, sides of outfits, waists, lapels or the complete garments.
The six Men’s wear garments ranged from sporty biker jackets and jumpsuits to sharply cut jackets with detailed construction. Colours were vibrant for the strong sex as verdant green was seen for a suit while nude leather added to the crispness of jackets. The black trench coat pants with black lace shirt and the suit with shimmering lapels were aimed at the metro sexual male. The final entry – a glitzy black lace hand-embroidered gown ended a show with great aplomb.
The very interesting platform shoes with artistic heels, the Art Deco inspired jewellery by Roopa Vohra and bags by Deepa Gurnani gave Rajat’s collection “La Cosa Nostra” the perfect dramatic touches and added to the glam quotient, which will appeal to the global buyer.
Sailex NG Reinterpreted the Glamour of the 50’s at Lakmé Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2012
It was the return to the era of glamour and beauty when Sailex NG reinterpreted the look of the 1950’s at Lakmé Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2012.
Inspired by the pin-up girls of that age and their sartorial preferences, Sailex NG showed a line of feminine creations featuring sexy nipped waists, décolletage, cute sweetheart necks, swirling full skirts and a profusion of peplums.
The silhouettes were elegant while the rich embellishments, colours and texturing combined with sensuous fabrics followed by sharp construction gave the outfits a classic, contemporary touch.
Giving the modern woman a choice of great fashion, Sailex had gowns, pea coats, skirt sets, satin blazer suits and even added saris for the ethnic dresser.
Starting with a sexy silver swimsuit and matching jacket, the show continued with the same colour story for a peplum coat. This was followed by the shaded silver double-breast coat dress, skirt and yellow long sleeve satin blouse. The yellow theme continued further for a ribbed playsuit, chiffon midi, long sleeve dress and long sleeve bikini top with high waist satin trousers.
The green story had a draped gown, pleated skirt and a Peter Pan collar top. The net maxi skirt with ribbon detailing set the pace for the gowns. The silhouettes ranged from mermaid to slim and finally a silver sheeting beauty with a peplum ended the show.
The two saris will thrill the traditional buyer as Sailex NG kept them elegantly simple but had two options – silver choli and one with long sleeves and a Peter Pan collar.
Here was a very stylish formal wear collection with large doses of retro chic from Sailex NG, which will thrill the trendsetting buyers.
