Lakme Fashion Week Spring 2010: Day Two


Anamika Khanna Spring 2010, Lakme Fashion Week

Anamika Khanna’s collection embraced simplicity and feminity by keeping the silhouettes free-flowing and easy, and the color palette quite minimal with mostly black and white interspersed with colors like red, corals and fuschia used more as an accent. ‘Yay’ for the fact that she mostly used cottons, especially muslin for her collection, something that I needed to see after all the velvet on runways. Loved the restrained use of appliqués, smocking, lace, cutouts, sequins and those zardozi motifs. It was understated and minimal without being bleak.


Anuj Sharma Spring 2010, Lakme Fashion Week

I can’t wait to see pieces from this collection ‘off-the-runway’! Anuj Sharma’s ‘Button Masala’ collection on the runway seems pretty alrite but wait till you read this… with buttons and button holes as the principal theme of his collection, he created garments that can be worn in multiple ways just by fastening the buttons in a different manner each time. A color palette of red, black, off-white and nude was the perfect backdrop to the rather easy silhouettes used on the runway; makes for a perfect foil for the wearer to bring her own to the clothes. And the endless possibilities with those buttons has me excited to see this collection in person.


Aneeth Arora Spring 2010, Lakme Fashion Week

Aneeth Arora’s ‘Pero’ was bit of a disappointment. While I appreciate the fact, and I really do appreciate it that it was a collection that predominantly used handloom fabrics like ikats, natural dyed khadi, bandhani and gamochas, the feeling that none of these elements were used to their full potential was hard to shake-off. The extremely wearable separates and the earthy cotton clothes with discreet floral embroidery and prints were applaud-worthy and yet can’t help but feel let-down over the fact that the designer didn’t take full advantage of what she was working with. Seemed like it was off to a great start and then just missed the homerun by that much.

Don’t know if the theme of the show had anything to do with it, but it was really refreshing to see Ms. Chopra in an Anamika Khanna outfit instead of yet another mini.

Now, if only we saw her wearing more offbeat stuff in real life. Here’s hoping!

Spotted on Sr. Vice President of IMG Fashion, Fern Mallis, an Anamika Khanna jacket from the designer’s Autumn/Winter 2009 collection. We quite hated the way Ms. Mallis wore this jacket. Instead of of the ill-flattering midi dress she had on, we wished she had picked a more fitted dress and left the jacket unbuttoned for a more casual but chic look.

Tina Tahiliani (sister of designer Tarun Tahiliani) was spotted wearing the same Anamika Khanna kurta seen first on Madhoo (see here ). Two appearances off the runway and both times I have been disappointed. I hated the way Madhoo wore it and although Tina does better by wearing a churidaar, there is just too much beige going on for my taste. Black leggings/churidaars and I probably would have loved it on her.

What say you?

Sonam went Grecian at the green carpet of the main awards ceremony in this one-shouldered Anamika Khanna dress that she paired with heavy Kundan necklaces, a Choo clutch and gold gladiator sandals. The end result, we have to say, was gorgeous and we loved it!

P.S. Can someone buy me that choker necklace!
