Lina Tipnis, Payal Singhal: LFW Summer/Resort 2010

Lina Tipnis’ collection drew it’s inspiration from Turkey and while she could’ve floored us, left us instead with a mellow “But haven’t we seen this before?” feeling.

The jeweled dresses were signature Tipnis; we’ve seen it before in her previous collections. The map print dresses with the jewelled detail didn’t really work for us visually. Boring and busy. What I did like though were the prints inspired from the blue Iznik tiles. So summer.

I do have a feeling we’ll be seeing many of these jeweled shifts off the runway.

Oh baby, bling it on. This collection from Payal Singhal almost had us reaching for our shades. The crystal embroidery/the jeweled necklines under the bright runway lights were positively blinding. (We saw this collection in the store later and it still was jarring up close.)

In theory it sounds great… lots of separates, neutral colors like ecru in simple silhouettes paired with statement making jewel/crystal encrusted necklines but in reality, it was just so jarring. Loud and overwhelming, it was hard to look past the shimmer.

Considering though that these dresses photograph better than they look in person and the fact that many love their ‘bling’, I have a feeling we’ll be doing ‘spottings’ of this collection soon.

Match Much?

At first glance I hated the neck detail on this (Lina Tipnis?) dress on Gauhar. That combined with the red accessories made me not like the whole look. But, am still on the fence, because irrespective of the ‘match-much’ and the neck frill, Gauhar still looks pretty great in red. I wish she had worn white t-straps instead of the red ones. It might have helped in pushing me onto the ‘like’ side of the fence. What say you about Ms. Khan’s outfit.

In Lina Tipnis

At a recent Signature Golf event, Neha Dhupia walked for Lina Tipnis in the same embellished LBD that the designer had previously shown during the Lakme Fashion Week as well. It’s to Neha’s credit that she actually made a dress that looked quite ‘meh’ on the runway really shine on her. We like.

LFW Autumn 09: Lina Tipnis

Lina Tipnis showed an extremely commercial and wearable collection with a lot of rich colors (other than the usual fall suspects-blacks and browns) and embellishments either in the neckline or at the waist. Our favorites have to be the sheath dresses in rich deep hues with tasteful embellishments on the necklines!
