LAKME FASHION WEEK DAY 4
The fourth day of the Summer/Resort’19 edition of the Lakme Fashion Week left us all starstruck, as everyone from the OG Anil Kapoor and his niece, Janhvi Kapoor, to ‘Gully Boy‘ Ranveer Kapoor, Kangana Ranaut, Kalki Koechlin, Jim Sarbh and Chitrangada Singh lent their larger-than-life presence to the talented designers through the day .
Rathore’s ‘An Ode To The Bandhgala’ in monochrome was tailoring at its’ finest really. With plenty of ruffles, pockets in his and her versions, and lots of shiny embellishments and texturing, the show got a standing ovation when showstopper Anil Kapoor pulled Ranveer Singh out of the #FROW and onto the stage, and they shook a leg together had us all floored.
BODICE X REEBOK
Actors Kalki Koechlin, Jim Sarbh, Sayani Gupta, Sikander Kher, Ira Dubey to noted fashion photographer, Anoushka Menon, actor Ayushmann Khurrana’s wife, Tahira Kashyap, DJ Arman Menzies, and others had the ramp LIT during Ruchika Sachdeva’s realism-inspired collection in collab with Reebok Sole Fury. Also, the debut of her first-ever menswear collection, we saw plenty of trending neutrals and her signature pleats.
ALCIS X NARI powered by R|Elan
Narendra Kumar’s athleisure-inspired collaboration with ALCIS had plenty of bright yellows, tangerines and reds, and gave athletic wear a sustainable twist by using polyester made entirely of recycled plastic PET bottles. The joggers, jackets, leggings, bombers and tees were anti-static, anti-odour and dry tech at its’ finest #AthleisureForDays
THE REAL CUT SHOW
In its bid to give diamond jewellery an impetus, the Diamond Producers Association tied up with Lakme Fashion Week for the first-of-its-kind ‘The Real Cut‘ show, which showcased the 6 winners of a jewellery design contest pair their winning designs with that of 3 celebrated Indian designers #WeWillTakeTheDiamondsToGoPlease
RARA AVIS X BHAVANA JHAKIA of OM JEWELLERS+RAJESHWARY SINGH of SENCO
Sonal Verma’s collection had a very ‘safari-meets-glamping‘ vibe, and beautifully meshed fun textures with monotone camels and browns, and had layered necklaces and chokers worn to perfection.
SAAKSHA AND KINNI X RUPAM SINGHAL of ORRA+SHAZIA MOTIWALA of A.S.MOTIWALA
Saaksha and Kinni’s patterned beauts found the perfect compliment in the sleek diamond jewellery it was paired with. The bright-tastic assortment of plenty of checks, geometric florals, and more in gorj sheer organza was absolutely delish.
VERANDAH x ANJALI PATEL MEHTA & C. RAGHU of KIRTILALS+AKSHITA GARG of CHIRIPAL JEWELLERS
Verandah’s Indian motifs-inspired collection was a sea of pastel maxis, tops and skirts paired with kitschily-embellished denim jackets and high-waisted pants, perfectly accessorised with fun potlis, chappals and oversized diamond hoops and maang-tikkas.
