ABHISHEK DUTTA AND LINA TIPNIS WERE INSPIRED BY STYLES THAT WILL WORK BEAUTIFULLY FOR SUMMER RESORT 2011 AT LAKMÉ FASHION WEEK









ABHISHEK DUTTA GAVE MINIMALISM A TRENDY FASHION TWIST FOR SUMMER/RESORT 2011 AT LAKMÉ FASHION WEEK

March 15, 2011, Mumbai: Unconventional silhouettes and a title that evokes instant interest is the way Abhishek Dutta likes to tell his collection story for Summer/Resort 2011 at Lakmé Fashion Week.

“The Kite Runner” was a men’s and women’s line that blitzed on to the ramp with kaleidoscopic colours as canary yellow, tangerine orange and grape mingled with neutrals like ivory, beige and steel. With origami as his inspiration, Abhishek played with folds and created a mélange of hemlines, plackets and seams. Detailing was abundant with striking appliqués, laser cutouts, channel seams and screen prints for cottons linen and knit.

When it came to the silhouettes, the designer gave a nod to comfort and preferred trapeze lines, shifts, yoga pants, cool summer jackets and draped creations.

Some of the great looks were the yellow laser cut knit top with grey folded skirt, the chiffon grey kurta with laser yoke, the mul looped armhole creation, the three button long tunic with churidars, shorts with inverted pleats and side pockets, and even a printed sari with a sexy laser cut halter choli.

Showstopper Nisha Kothari ended the women’s wear section in a laser cut halter and multi folded skirt.

For men, Abhishek created lean jackets, organza shirt with orange pants, and some laser cut sleeveless shirts, a brown tiny lapel jacket and a bundgala with orange zig zag embroidery.

Shayan Munshi stopped the men’s wear section in a sharply cut one lapel grey jacket teamed with a yellow trouser with inverted pleats.

For relaxed summer wear, Abhishek Dutta’s “The Kite Runner” collection will have many buyers chasing it for the sultry months.

LINA TIPNIS MOVED INTO THE FUTURE WITH HER STYLISH FANTASTICAL LAND COLLECTION FOR SUMMER/RESORT 2011 AT LAKMÉ FASHION WEEK

Shades of burnt sienna and coal, skin and egg and the frothy blue clouds – these were the colours that sailed down the runway as Lina Tipnis unveiled her “Fantastical Land” Summer/Resort 2011 collection at Lakmé Fashion Week.

Giving a strong emphasis to cocktail and club wear the sharply cut minis, were tailored in basic shapes that moved from sheaths to shifts and trapeze silhouettes, with a few blouses and Jodhpuri trousers completing the look. Displaying a distinct shoulder emphasis for many of the garments, Lina added on interesting sleeves that moved from pegged to cowl.

Using her signature Trompe L’oeil technique featuring the chandelier and coin print for the creations, the collection was a mix of style, practicality and colour coordination.

Introducing her line of specially designed jewellery - earrings and rings - Lina matched them beautifully with every garment.

Giving a galactic title to each ensemble, Lina started with a dupion skirt in midnight blue with satin tank top, the stylish palazzos with black one-shoulder top, peg dress in ochre with star brooch, elegant sienna dress with circular sleeves and jewelled shoulder patch, another shift with diamond harness around the armholes and an hour glass dress in midnight blue with jewelled shoulders. 

The shimmering embroidery was often added to act as necklaces or pendants on the dresses. The final trench in black with pewter coin print had shimmering collar and epaulettes that ended the perfect summer ready-to-wear collection.   

Lina Tipnis’s offering of the “Fantastical Land” will surely fly off the racks this season with the international as well as the Indian buyers.
