The Royal Bagh was what Punit Balana called his collection at Lakmé Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2020. It was an ultra-glam picture inspired by Sisodia Rani Palace Garden of Jaipur and the Rajwaras of Rajasthan. On view was an arresting line of hues like buttercup and blue, enhanced with delicate dori work and zardosi. The base fabrics were mulmul and cotton that offered a sense of comfort and ease to the wearer.
Saris appeared with stylish cholis, kalidar kurtas shararas with tassels or latkans, dhoti pants with flared kurtas and crinkled kurta with pants. For the western dressers, there were striped glittering jackets with bikini tops and palazzos, a trendy pinafore over leheriya shirt, a sexy flared skirt teamed with a cute top and jacket.
Ending the show was Tara Sutaria who swirled down the ramp in a pale pink silk luxuriously shimmering lehenga with tantalising latkans, a gleaming choli and delicate dupatta.
Next in line was the perfect print story of label SVA by Sonam and Paras Modi. Called Galeecha, the collection’s fabric choice had staples like silk and also denim that took the ensembles many notches up the fashion ladder. The contemporary resort wear looks merged abstract textures with geometric prints and fluid florals. The horizontal striped sari with a sleeved pallav, angular draped midi, asymmetric skirt with a lean sherwani and the cape over lehenga and choli brought variety to the collection.
An exciting drape over bell bottoms and choli, an angular one-shoulder poncho with pants, the striped looped skirt, choli and cape trio, as well as the layered flowing lehenga with a one-shoulder choli were eye-catching. The menswear was practical but with a lot of colour and prints.
And Alaya F who has made waves on the big screen stole the catwalk as the showstopper, looking like a bohemian princess in a graphic, multicoloured, long-sleeved blouse with intense detailing.
