Bohemian Travellers Spin The Fashion World Around

Anita Dongre WIFW AW 2014

A few designers at Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week were inspired by the concept of a free spirited bohemian, vintage loving traveller.

Anita Dongre’s Jaipur bride muse made Europe her playground for AW 2014.  Gorgeous tousled hair, peacock eyes and tassels were the continuing thread in an altogether beautiful collection.  The European reference didn’t come across as strong as the designer may have wanted as the prints and overall styling as very Indian ethnic.  Perhaps the Jaipur bride decided to park herself in Andalucia?

Anita Dongre’s selection of vibrant and technically brilliant ikat weaves are excellent, reminding me of Missoni knits only with more lustre.  The indigo and chocolate tones were also delicious and in tune with trends.

Tanvi Kedia WIFW AW 2014

Designer Tanvi’s collection was inspired by folklore, all things vintage and travel with particular references to Afghanistan, Pakistan and India. The fantasy free spirited woman carries a ‘hippy deluxe’ look with flowing dresses and intricately layered separates.

Virtues by Viral & Vikrant was a bohemian take on fifty shades of grey representing the many roles of modern Indian women and scarlet to express their emotions.  I particularly liked the menswear in this collection which had a more contemporary and sharp look compared to the women’s collection which, again, had a rather bohemian folk feel.
