The only way to look great in sweat pants. Alexander Wang for Interview magazie April 2010 issue.
Wang has brought back the sweat shirt and the gray-gym wardrobe from the recent past to the present. It is almost as if he was meant to be named after Alex from the film Flashdance who started the gray-sweatshirt look.
Designer: Rehane (pronounced like a plural for Rihanna)
Do they make them kooky in Chennai: Yes
Kooky sure, but the collection was a reflection of her love for out of the box thinking and uncommon mix of color and embroidery. What caught our attention was the velvet mini dresses with intrinsic bead work and accentuated hips. Rihane was a … interesting host to her stall (never could see the show). She spoke comically and generously gave one of the head accessories from her collection to a friend. Craftsmanship mixed with a little zaniness, Rehane created some precious seperate pieces and some pieces that could have been left back at Chennai.The models looked like the Indian shepherd girls. A look that could catch on by next winter…?
Hardly got time to post this Delhi Fashion Week. Its a pity because CANCELLING of the entire Day 1 of Fashion Week because of lack of fire safety and then on Day 4 witnessing a wobbly security guard try to hose off a smoke-fire from the “art” installation would have made an inneresting read.
Still, glad to have worked for it and met some interesting folks (Hello Morphe – Amit Aggarwal)
But I do not want to miss on posting a few great moments witnessed, so will do it now.
Guess which designer showcased his FW collection at Delhi FW with models(fighters) walking out with torn layered tights, bandaged heads and garments with ‘reptilian’ embroidery..
High end online store Luisa Via Roma is doing a limited edition promotion collaborating with brands one of them being Manish Arora.
The page says Manish has created these leggings exclusively for Luisa Via Roma, but I cant help comparing its resemblance to the one from his Spring Summer 2007 collection.
One of my favorite things about Giles is the use of fun colors like Pink, Yellow and Blue in his collections. The Clouds clips being in similar shade convinced me to do this post.
To me the silhouette grabbed attention when one of the Olsen sisters wore one of their label skirts( Elizabeth and James or was it The Row) at one of the red carpet dressing. The skirt was not a ‘one-of’ at the Autumn Winter 2010-11 fashion week. Marc Jacobs did the sari-esque skirt with his grunge-ey sweater top, Phillip Lim did a punk-ish black one matched with a 80’s leather jacket, Naeem Khan was the sophisticated best with a fitting skirt in opulent materials and Ashish Gupta of course did a few in sequins.
