Mumbai, Mar 17 (Calcutta Tube / IBNS): It was a sumptuous delicious collection almost good enough to eat and with a title like “Gelato” the famous Italian ice-cream, Jatin Varma captured all eyes as his creations glided down the catwalk.
The sorbet colours the light fabric textures, the delightful drapes were the strong points of Jatin’s great Summer/Resort 2011 look at Lakmé Fashion Week.
Staying true to his theme, Jatin worked with four colours in irresistible melon pink, blue, white and dollops of yellow.
To match the mood and taste of the inspiration, Jatin chose soft sensuous silk, organza and taffeta to create the most feminine drapes and discreet volumes for the skirts which ranged from slim to full flare.
One shoulder frilled creations, diagonal pleated minis, dresses with flowing trails and basket weaves for bodices added that extra ‘oomph’ to the collection.
The elegant swirls on the garments inspired by the waves of ice creams in a store gave the ensembles that sumptuous appearance.
Jatin’s collection was an artful study in different interesting stylish pleating, drapes and ruffles techniques for the utterly feminine trendy minis and Red Carpet gowns.
“Gelato” was a collection that was not only mouth-watering to look at but very eye catching and will prove a great seller for Jatin Varma for the summer season.
Vivek Karunakaran showcased some perfect holiday lines for Summer/Resort 2011 at Lakmé Fashion Week.
Soft fluid shapes blended effortlessly with rectangular silhouettes as hemlines overlapped seductively and colour blocking added a new found symmetry.
Tonal and contrast godets were the eye-catching aspect of the collection as Vivek worked expertly with striking textures to highlight the simple cuts.
Aimed at the glamorous beach comber, the stylish sheaths had the right colour blocks while bejewelled necklines added glitter to the dresses. There was a marked 50s touch to the summer dresses while the jumpsuits were given a modern twist with corsets.
Sexy bikinis peeped from under maxis and will be the beach belle’s delight. Colours matched the sunny mood of the collection with bright hues like orange, vermillion, green and ecru giving the right touches to the crepes, chamois satins, chiffons, georgettes and jerseys.
The nearly all women’s wear line with just four men’s wear options was a sunny fun filled offering.
Jumpsuits with circular appliqués on bustiers and flared hems, double layered shirt dress in georgette with contrast flat lock detail, the racer back tent dress in vermillion crepe, the looped hem maxi dress and the jumpsuit zuave dress were some of the eye catchers of the collection.
For men’s wear Vivek stuck to sheer ecru georgette shirts with pin tucks or bib yokes, beach Capris and a single breasted unlined jacket in silk organza.
Here was an ultra-glam collection from Vivek Karunakaran which will thrill the jet setting holiday makers around the world.
