Looks For The Next Season By Amrich Were A Fashion Experience At Lakmé Fashion Week Summer/resort 2018
Richard Pandav and Amit Vijaya, the designers behind the ‘Amrich’ Label at Lakmé Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2018 once again made a striking impact with their hand crafted Shibori collection. Called “Ties That Bind”, there were separates in hand made, Khadi, silk and silk cotton blends with a metallic feel.
In shades of mustard, brown, black, red, white and blue, the geometric prints were turned into relaxed silhouettes. Fluid bias cut skirts, metallic dolman sleeve cropped jackets, flowing kimono style robes, cropped Bermudas with simple white shirts, wrap covers and flared midis with capes shimmered on the ramp. Dramatic ivory summer trench coats were teamed with delicately printed, long-sleeved, dresses that will make a stylish fashion statement.
Dividing the show in two distinct segments – day and evening – with a lot of glitter for the latter, the show opened with a jacket, self-checked shirt and wide leg trousers, then went on for some racer back midis, checked, pleated, yoke, asymmetric, kaftan, tunic, layered dress and a lovely panelled shirtdress.
“Ties That Bind” by Amrich from Richard Pandav and Amit Vijaya was a perfect fashionable offering that will create a stir on the style charts for Summer/Resort 2018.
Textiles, Prints And Designs By Urvashi Kaur Dazzled At Lakmé Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2018
Calling her collection “Prahara” inspired by the ancient Indian system of division of time within the course of a day, Urvashi worked with monochromes like grey and ecru and then moved to black, as she mingled these with shades of blue. Bringing in interesting engineering techniques, she ensured that hand woven Khadi and the transparent Kota Doriya had linear patterns.
The women’s wear line was in subtle shades for the intricate hand tucked opening entry. The sari with a long-sleeved blouse, the side micro-pleated kurtas, striped pinafore, grey tiered, floor- length cover and the checked cropped top with pleated skirt were great summer offerings.
Men’s wear matched the oversized silhouette with floppy sheer coats, draped cowl pants, baggy drop crotch salwars, patched covers and the relaxed long cover-up over a kurta.
“Prahara” by Urvashi Kaur will be a great addition in Summer/Resort 2018 wardrobes of both men and women when it comes to easy dressing.
