Shimmery beach bags
They’re shiny, they’re bejewelled, and they’re supersized. Check out the beach bags at Pia Pauro!
Wooden carvings from the Renaissance appeared on clutches at Sounia Gohil. Do we need another reason to believe they were romantic, luxurious times?
Urban laptop bags
Bags for the busy working woman are simple, carefully crafted and neutral—as seen at Nishka Lulla (bags by Vitasta).
Fashion week is not just about the fashion shows, trends and celeb showstoppers. It’s also about taking a closer look at my favourite or upcoming designers’ collections in the “stalls” area (it’s called The Source at Lakme Fashion Week). In this season of LFW, a few desginers chose to showcase their collection in creative ways that were in like with the theme of their collection. Here are the best stalls from Lakme Fashion Week Summer Resort 2013 (in no particular order):
Pia Pauro’s Greek boathouse
Check out the wooden slats, sailoring equipment and the hat hung on the wheel.
Anushree Reddy’s charming salon
Cute picture-frames, vintage furniture and the very girly white-and-pink theme!
Arjun Khanna’s men’s tailoring boutique
It’s got the feel of a royal hunting lodge!
Designer Pia Pauro travelled to Greece, fell so deeply in love with the blue sea and white homes, that she made a collection inspired by the country. Pia Pauro’s collection at Lakme Fashion Week Summer Resort 2013 was mostly blue and white with a touch of gold and bright colours. Her prints were “Mykonous” and “Olympia” with fish motifs and gold thread embroidery. The very long and short dresses and tunics had cute turquoise bikinis peeping through, making the ensembles perfect for vacation in Goa, Greece or St. Tropez. Resort wear is always fun, though this collection could have been more fun with a few more interesting pieces. Too bad I’m not going anywhere! I want to carry those large beach bags.
