Abhishek Dutta’s minimalism at Lakme Fashion Week

Mumbai, Mar 15 (Calcutta Tube / IBNS) Unconventional silhouettes and a title that evokes instant interest is the way Abhishek Dutta likes to tell his collection story for Summer/Resort 2011 at Lakmé Fashion Week on Day Five Tuesday.

“The Kite Runner” was a men’s and women’s line that blitzed on to the ramp with kaleidoscopic colours as canary yellow, tangerine orange and grape mingled with neutrals like ivory, beige and steel.

With origami as his inspiration, Abhishek played with folds and created a mélange of hemlines, plackets and seams. Detailing was abundant with striking appliqués, laser cutouts, channel seams and screen prints for cottons linen and knit.

When it came to the silhouettes, the designer gave a nod to comfort and preferred trapeze lines, shifts, yoga pants, cool summer jackets and draped creations.

Some of the great looks were the yellow laser cut knit top with grey folded skirt, the chiffon grey kurta with laser yoke, the mul looped armhole creation, the three button long tunic with churidars, shorts with inverted pleats and side pockets, and even a printed sari with a sexy laser cut halter choli.

Showstopper Nisha Kothari ended the women’s wear section in a laser cut halter and multi folded skirt.

For men, Abhishek created lean jackets, organza shirt with orange pants, and some laser cut sleeveless shirts, a brown tiny lapel jacket and a bundgala with orange zig zag embroidery.

Shayan Munshi stopped the men’s wear section in a sharply cut one lapel grey jacket teamed with a yellow trouser with inverted pleats.

For relaxed summer wear, Abhishek Dutta’s “The Kite Runner” collection may have many buyers chasing it for the sultry months.
