There is always a group of people who’s collections are awaited with bated breath – with a few hits and misses, they hit out the ball park every time and are already and in the process of becoming veterans of the fashion houses they lead. They set trends, bring forth something afresh to the runway with experimenting within their signature aesthetic.
The face of quirkyness and spearheading that in India, Masaba has mastered that art and successfully transitioned it into a business that has likes of people from many facets sporting her designs. International in aesthetic and quirky in language, Masaba presented the usual with the unusual playing up with proportions, scale and silhouette within her collection. Even her conventional is unconventional and she has worked hard to normalize that. jackets and tunics over saris, oversized off shoulders, crops, and the commercial tunics and tops. Paired along with the metallic prints it had a nostalgia of 90s with a modern day twist to it. With solid pieces to printed ones with accents of red shoes were just the pop accents the collection needed.
ROHIT GANDHI AND RAHUL KHANNA
The ever chic Rohit Gandhi & Rahul Khanna played up the metallic trend with a departure from their structured silhouette with draped ones yet still streamlined lines. With glamour in full swing, the duo manages to do metallic just right every time in right amounts. With slinky and draped dresses, fringed and structured separates and a few menswear, Rohit Gandhi & Rahul Khanna worked on a muted color palette with injections of dusty pinks and blues. While their signature dresses did sashay down the runway, it was their draped pieces which certainly showed their mastery of not sitting with a certain mould yet keeping their signature intact.
Oversized, unapologetic and layered, Amit Agarwal’s collection was loud, calm and collected all at the same time. Experimenting within a number of silhouettes and texture treatments, flares and frills made an appearance in oversized collection. Puctuations of pastels, citrus and metallic with white was balanced perefectly within outfits that sashayed down down the runway. Downplaying color with translucency and perforated fabrics, Agarwal layered his garments deftly giving us a boho sporty chic during his presentation.
Pranav Mishra and Shyma Shetty stuck to their sporty guns but this time went into exploring 3d, repoussee like details in their collection. With embroidered motifs of florals and screaming mascots, the designer duo gave us options for bomber jackets, track suits and separates. My favorite has to be the sheer shirt with the Monkey repousse that was just the quirky highlight of the collection.
