Lakme Fashion Week’16 Round Up | Day 3
We hope you’re ready for our take on Day 3 of Lakme Fashion Week Summer Resort 2016. So, here are the favorite designers and our whole look from the day.
A pictorial documentation of a love sonnet. Frankenstein’s lover tries to revive him back to life in a run-down nature ridden mad scientist’s lab. Aiman’s well structured blazers, heart embroidered shirt and comfortable bottoms is one of the best creations, we think. An artistic experimentation of symbolic motifs of love and struggle are immaculately embroidered on crisp modern silhouettes.
Nishka Lulla’s Summer Resort collection yells summer in every way. The pastel color palette along with easy breezy fabrics in separates is luxuriously laid back making your summers a lot easier. The collection comprises asymmetrical silhouettes, wrap skirts, crop tops, cold-shoulders, dungarees in lightweight textured denim, palazzo pants and double-breasted jackets.
The ramp was illuminated by the beautiful hues of the couture showcasing Anita Dongre’s signature gotta patti and resham embroidery work. Each ensemble tells its own quiet love story capturing this poignant emotion in ethereal tales. The audience was left mesmerized as Sonakshi Sinha walked down the runway playing the perfect muse, portraying a young princess full of emotions, passion and grace.
Being unconventional with her ideas, Little Shilpa’s show was nothing less than that. It took place at the terrace garden of LFW showcasing something we have never seen before. After an absence of three seasons on the ramp Shilpa brought to centre stage her collections from Autumn/Winter 2015, Spring/Summer 2016 and Autumn/Winter 2016 that were shown in London and Paris. It was an interactive show where the models showcased the three collections as they mingled with the audience during the extreme display.
The ensembles by Dhruv Kapoor symbolized traits of growing feminism. The color palette was lively and energetic. The garments were divergent and intricate in terms of tailoring, the skills of the designer shone through his remarkable and well executed attempt. Created in jersey, leather, satin, cotton, denim and a hint of sheer fabrics gave the collection more depth and design.
Keeping up with the spirit of Verandah by Anjali, the silhouettes this season are bohemian and chic, pairing summer ready staples in strong floral, stripes and solids. Maxis make a comeback with fuss free ease as the perfect travel companion, while the off shoulder dresses, tapered jackets with wide leg pant suits, transports you right back to the 70s.
Nikhil Thampi being the mastermind that he is, created a well-structured luxurious ensemble of panelled skirts and blazers with cut-outs and metal detailing. The designer in collaboration with Lakme Salon went for braided hair, nail art and glitter lips adding to the whole line-up.

What we wore?
We went for the prêt collection by Aashima Behl, which is unusually impressive and fits right into your wardrobe this summer. She works around shirt dresses, plays with the sleeves, minimalistic waist coats and everything is just so rightly priced. The outfits we chose for the Lakme Fashion Week’16 were simple but definitely stylish. The color tones were around white and blues to justify this scorching heat. Himanshi wore this utterly cool color blocked shift shirt dress. She paired it with these cute pineapple socks and mint sandals to experiment a little. To keep up to the minimalism of the look, she carried a blue and off-white bag which went well with the dress. Gona wore this top with a bow at the midriff giving a definition on the waist. The bell sleeves made this top all the more summer-ish and chic. She wore these tan brown gladiators which looked quite edgy. To complete the look she carried a black bag which added to the whole outfit.
