Holiday vibes were the predominant theme on day 3 of Amazon India Fashion Week, however, a new fashion category emerged: ethnic sports luxe, Adidas stripes on a Sari and kaftan? We saw it here first!
Vineet Bahl WIFW AW 2014
My fellow blogging buddies and I had to keep reminding ourselves that we were seeing AW collections as both Anupamaa and Vineet Bahl showed collections that could easily overlap the current Spring/Summer trends. Shame we have to wait for the collections to hit stores!
Vineet Bahl used to be one of my favourite Indian designers due to his Western silhouettes which were gorgeous. Over the last couple of years he has started specialising in India ethnic wear which I guess has more commercial sense for him but he was truly a refreshingly different designer for Western design.
His new AW14 is inspired by the celebration of every moment of life without prejudice and judgement. The collection began with muted earthy handloom silks occasionally peppered with neon embellishment detail and pastel shades slowly crept in and made way for a myriad of vintage inspired colours and delicious combinations such as Prussian blue with peach. Want!!
WIFW Designer: Anupamaa
International Urban Nomads
Internationally acclaimed fashion designer, Anupama Dayaal kicked off Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week Spring/Summer14 with an explosion of colour and bold prints. Some collections could be viewed as transcending seasons, however, Anupamaa’s screamed SUNSHINE. Bright pinks, orange and yellow tones worn with tousled hair and beach foot accessories completed the looks.
