Deepak and Fahad’s latest outing METALLISTIC thrived on metallic details. Trending on the spring summer trend of metallics, the clothes were studded with rivets, spikes and studs. A major step up from their last collection DnF, the name their label goes by, has come a long way in terms of putting up a fashion collection.
With a color palette that ranged from beiges, creams and browns to grey and navy, the collection majorly comprised of menswear with a few pieces of womenswear thrown in. Accented with metallic details, what resulted in is a collection that was minimal, well put together albeit safe. What I also liked about the collection was also that footwear was given and thought out particularly as they too were spiked and studded. Accessorized with the gold shutter glasses which drew applause from all ends.
In terms of silhouettes, though I felt the collection lacked variety as well as innovation. Though the silhouettes ranged from classic suits, bandhgala to jumpsuit, I felt it could have been a pushed more. Also, in my personal opinion, as much they improved upon the feedback they got last time, this time around I had problems with constructions of some of the garments including jumpsuits for women. Also in terms of aesthetics I felt the metal accents and their usage could be tweaked a bit more for balanced visual appeal.
