SS’13 : Wills Lifestyle Fashion Week SS 13 Day 1, Part 3

October 9, 2012

I bring to you the exclusive coverage of Wills Lifestyle Fashion Week SS 13.  Day 1, Part 3 Surily SS 2013 FEVER Fever, the latest collection by Surily, marks the label’s return to the trademark style of fringes and flirty movement, but with an electric twist. Fever embraces metallic accents along with a palette ranging from pop colors like fluorescent yellows, tangerine and pinks on nudes and blues. Silhouettes ranging from play suits, asymmetrical dresses, and drapes to the leggy mini-dresses and skirts, feature in the collection. Interesting use of Aztec prints, especially created for the collection and merged with geometric designs, add a modern touch. All these elements come together in the collection, through the recurrent theme of Strong, Sexy, and Edgy. Kiran Uttam Ghosh SS 2013 The KUG woman, with her layering, defies categorization. Kiran Uttam Ghosh’s Spring Summer 2013 collection interprets masculine pieces with underlying femininity, occasionally toying with the boundaries of androgyny and  fosters the concept of transition, transformation and evolution. Leonard Cohen’s poetry underlined the rebellious undercurrents of this collection at the ongoing Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week. Kiran picks shapes, embellishments and motifs from the Middle East, the Orient and India and blends them in a languid yet elegant form of comfort dressing. Metallic components, stark placement embroideries, colour and print blocking met Ghosh’s signature layering, edgy silhouettes and soft geometric shapes in a vivid palette of spice colours and vibrant hues. Innovatively using sheer and opaque plays and experimenting with constructed separates against flow, Kiran Uttam Ghosh presented new layering ideas that go beyond the ‘tunics with trousers’ theory. Credited for creating shapes and styles that are of the moment but not bound by time, Kiran Uttam Ghosh presented a collection of easy to wear pieces that surprisingly skimmed several of this season’s biggest trend …

I bring to you the exclusive coverage of Wills Lifestyle Fashion Week SS 13.  Day 1, Part 2 Atsu Sekhose SS 2013 Bringing to fore his love for North East is Atsu Sekhose’s Spring Summer 2013 collection.  The designer has gravitated towards the tribes of North East as the chief inspiration this season.  Having his roots in Nagaland, he has been chosen by the Ministry of Textiles to present a collection that is evocative of the northeastern culture. His strength as a mixologist comes through in the constructions made of hand woven fabrics moulded into a collection inspired by American sportswear.   Every look emphasizes the honed body through Naga fabrics like cotton and silk, woven by 30 underprivileged women from a women’s weaving organization –  VITOLE  and Assamese Silk exclusively woven by Assamese weavers.   The contemporary collection opens with shorts, parka jackets, trench jackets, trousers and shirts making way for dresses and evening gowns. Having a pulsating sense of color, Atsu has meticulously chosen shades of reds, cobalt blue, off white and beige married to black. Each and every detail has been well examined to go along with the collection, hence rejuvenating the beauty, style, art, craft, music and richness of North East. Primarily known for his chic, feminine and understated clothing Atsu’s line has evolved into a complete ready-to-wear collection, which firmly holds his signature style and modern adaptation to classic silhouettes. Geisha Designs SS 2013 An Edwardian summer This is the mood of the SS’13 line by Shalini and Paras of Geisha Designs. Set in an Edwardian Era with influences of other cultures to create a fresh look. The collection is all about contemporary silhouettes coupled with traditional techniques on luxurious rich fabrics and encapsulates the quaint theatricals of the art, heritage and mystique of Victorian life.
