Resort 2015 : Part Two

Resort 2015 : Part Two

The resort collections are pouring in! Here are a few more edited down versions of the collections themselves. You can view the previous post on Resort 2015 here. Missoni It's more than your average "active wear" collection. The Missoni print definitely enhances the appeal. With light knits and lurex, the collection features more comfortable clothing in bright pastel shades. One of the later looks with the indigo blue gown is stunning; perfection in simplicity. I also really like the colourful leopard print. DKNY Preppy and functional. A large portion of this vast collection…Read more

Resort 2015 : Part One

The Resort 2015 collections are starting to trickle in, with the destination cruise collections like Chanel, Louis Vuitton releasing ahead of time. I'm following a new format for my runway fashion posts where I club 10-12 collections in one post. It will be image heavy! If you're looking for specific designers, try the tags. We start off with Dior!   Dior Set upon a cruise over the Hudson river, the collection felt very Dior-esque with its large but soft prints. The minimalism and cuts gave it more edge. I really love the sharp…Read more
Resort 2014 : Elie Tahari, DKNY and Burberry Prorsum

Resort 2014 : Elie Tahari, DKNY and Burberry Prorsum

I'm desperate to catch up on the resort collections but I have no time. I might resort (oh dear, bad pun) to posting only the ones that I really like. For now, I'll review Elie Tahari, DKNY and Burberry Prorsum.   Elie Tahari Elie Tahari has a collection of basics played up and down with edgier and on trend pieces. The sleek tapered pants, waterfall cardigan which falls beautifully and clean cut blazers give a very polished look. More relevant and exciting are the leather skirts and graphic abstract pieces. I adore the…Read more
Resort 2014 : Oscar de la Renta, Just Cavalli and Moschino Cheap and Chic

Resort 2014 : Oscar de la Renta, Just Cavalli and Moschino Cheap and Chic

Many of the resort collections seem like an extension of spring and not all together different. Here, I'll be reviewing collections by Oscar de la Renta, Just Cavalli and Moschino Cheap and Chic. Oscar de la Renta Appliques, florals, volume; Oscar de la Renta's resort collection had all that and then some. The asymmetrical peplum is one distinct piece here and while difficult to pull off, it has certain appeal to it. The chartruese kimono style top and blue mermaid skirt seems a bit much but individually I think they are really great…Read more
Resort 2014 : Christian Dior, Versus Versace and Etro

Resort 2014 : Christian Dior, Versus Versace and Etro

Resort 2014 collections are trickling in very slowly and I just can't find them all in one place. I don't know why some of the sites are holding back on publishing them. Oh well, I have 3 collections to review here - ┬áChristian Dior by Raf Simmons, Versus Versace by J.W. Anderson and Etro! Let's begin! Christian Dior Showcased in Monaco, Dior's collection had that air of elegance and a grandiose location to present it. Placed in a yacht, it was quite the obvious choice for a resort collection. The looks have that…Read more
Resort 2014 : Chanel, Bottega Veneta and Diesel Black Gold

Resort 2014 : Chanel, Bottega Veneta and Diesel Black Gold

Resort 2014 is here! I'm preparing for my next big vacation in June and I'll be travelling a lot. It puts me in the right mood to review resort collections! Granted, I'm travelling to cold countries in Scandanavia, the beachy resort collections are still a treat to view! Chanel Chanel's resort collection as always, took place in another exotic place; this time Singapore. While some silhouettes borrowed from the traditional Singaporean dress, Lagerfeld interprets it in the classic Chanel-esque manner. If you love pearls, clean exhuberance, you'll love this collection. I loved the…Read more

LFW Summer/Resort 2013 RTW : Day 5 : Archana Kochhar, Shantanu & Nikhil and Namrata Joshipura

The final day of Lakme Fashion Week and this post is long overdue. Unfortunately, I was really ill almost the entire week and didn't manage to do much on my blog. But I really missed it and I'm back with a bang! With a stunning finale from Namrata Joshipura and collections from Archana Kochhar and Shantanu & Nikhil. Archana Kochhar Archana Kochhar's collection has a good urban vibe about it. I like the monochrome prints with the neon colours in sheer breezy silhouettes. Definitely feels very spring/summer. I love the bright fuschia dress…Read more

LFW Summer/Resort 2013 RTW : Day 5 : Kaabia & Sasha, Nitya and Vijay Balhara

The final day, day 5 of Lakme fashion Week was held a lot of anticipation. People were really synced to see Namrata Joshipura's collection but till then, collections from Kaabia & Sasha, Nitya and Vijay Balhara proved to be great as well. Kaabia & Sasha The jewellery in this collection had a tribal vibe to it. But all the statement pieces were so gorgeous. My favourites were actually the rings. Enormous and never seen anything like them before.   Nitya This collection featured fun summer separates layered along with chunky jewellery. I didn't…Read more

LFW Summer/Resort 2013 RTW : Day 4 : Purvi Doshi, Soumitra Mondal and Vaishali S

Day 4 at Lakme Fashion Week begin with a bang with gorgeous collections from Purvi Doshi, Soumitra Mondal and Vaishali S. Purvi Doshi Purvi Doshi's collection kept the oufit's simple and comfortable for summers. But the added charm was the not too overpowering colourful embroidery. Everyone own's something vintage in this style but to see it applied to a new silhouette is amazing. All the dresses have a nice casual ease to them. Soumitra Mondal Soumitra Mondal's collection was a treat for women who love pink! The patterns were delicate and the sarees…Read more

Just one more day of Lakme Fashion Week left! On day 4, however, collections from Agnimitra Paul, Farah and Firdos and Vikram Phadnis made a lasting impression. Agnimitra Paul Agnimitra Paul had a collection with a pretty vine and leaf print mashed up in multiple colours. The collection had simpler pieces sa well like the opening black dress with pink lining and an embroidered top. An anarkali with a green hoodie was the best piece.   Farah and Firdos Farah and Firdos presented a collection with mainly statement pieces. Those ranged from a…Read more
