LFW Summer/Resort 2018 Highlights

cover_final

We were in absolute awe when the creations of various designers cascaded down the ramps at The Lakme Fashion Week Spring Summer 2018 showcase. It was an avant-garde, star-studded event in every accord. Beautiful creations, unending silhouettes and gorgeous looks were in full display at the 5-day event. Here’s looking at our favourites:

Anaam

Some serious eccentric style came alive at Anaam. The distinct silhouettes and solid colors added to the glam quotient and the state-of-the-art net like hair patterns were everything.

431-88 Shweta Kapur

431-88 by Shweta Kapur had everyday silhouettes making a statement. Just by zinging them a bit, the designer showcased how your usuals can become showstoppers.

Falguni & Shane Peacock rocked the ramp in solid black and floral tapestry designs. Shimmer was used in certain bouts making it a striking element.

Anita Dongre

Anita Dongre’s pastel perfect outfits seemed great to be worn at Mehendis and Sangeets. You won’t have to look much far away to zero down on your summer wedding ensembles now.

Lajjoo C.

Bespoke femininity was rife at Lajjoo C. Variants of rust and moss coloured outfits made us want to embrace them colors simply.

Anamika Khanna_

Anamika Khanna showcased a varied concoction which all came together when the showstopper hit the ramp. A wide array of prints were used and we couldn’t think of better summer options.

Half Full Curve

Half Full Curve silenced the ideal body type argument and graced the ramp with stunner outfits. Subtle hues and pared down colors merged with flowy silhouettes and cowl bottoms to create a Goddess collection, like never before.

CROW

Minimal and breezy was the mantra at CROW. Think classy yet relaxed outfit styles that will keep you on-the-go while still lending a subtle statement.

Ikai Ragini Ahuja

Some easy styles and refreshing silhouettes welcomed us at Ikai by Ragini Ahuja. The designer introduced stripes in a relaxed and casual format.

LFWSR17D5S2aAnushree-ReddyRunway006

Refreshing florals welcomed us at Anushree Reddy’s show. The designer attested our belief of how pastels and florals are perfect for any occasion.

VineetRahul

We could not get over the beautiful florals at Vineet Rahul. The muted tones and pops of color were soothing to the eyes and the floral fascinators were the winner.

LFW Jewellery Trends to Heart On

With every passing Fashion Week we get a whole bunch of upward trends to binge on and the saga continued with the recent Lakme Fashion Week too. It was a great compilation of luxuriant look books that has only left us feeling awed as usual. With spectacular silhouettes, splendid designs and a whole lot of attractiveness being placed in front of us, we still did not fail to marvel at the striking jewellery pieces. We have been invested throughout and sharing the notice worthy trends seemed legit enough.

So yes, here we go:

Septum Rings – Gaurang

Because how else will rad and tradition look good together if not bought together by septum rings? Gaurang’s collection of luminous fabrics and traditional prints give perspective to these rings and channelize a whole new different personality.

Retro Earrings with Head Wraps – Shivan & Narresh

Retrograde because that era was so cool and chic both at the same time. From fish scale embellishments on the garments to sprinkled blings, this collection looked even more dazzling with those twisted head wraps and bulky drops.

Retro Bangles – Ritu Kumar

Yet again, a touch of the bygone era while channelizing the ultimate sporty chic, that’s what Ritu Kumar’s collection spoke about. Colourful headbands and bangles blended well with the garments and we want to include them in our outfits like, right now!

All Out Chokers – Shantanu & Nikhil

Chokers in all colours and many embellishments dominated the ramp for Shantanu and Nikhil’s label. Rigorous experimentation and versatile looks give us a lowdown on maybe the multiple looks of Maleficent if it were to be designed.

Fusion Necklaces – Sabyasachi

He does ornate and extravagance in the best way possible and simply broadens the horizons of the spectators with his wondorous collections. Well known for the grandiose that he creates, this time around the couturier forayed in to the space of western garments and nailed it with fur and blingy fusion necklaces.
