Last week saw some truly spectacular Spring/ Summer 2016 collections showcased at Amazon India Fashion Week, New Delhi. Our photographer/stylist friend was in attendance – Abhimanyu Singh Rathore of popular street style blog Ishtailista. We took some time to compile a list of our runway favorites, so scroll down ahead to find out what the stylish community will be wearing come next year!
Hemant & Nandita – The creative duo brought back bold retro florals and strappy gladiator sandals this season with their cheerful collection. Featuring boxy silhouettes, crocheted fabrics and colorful prints, we wouldn’t be too off the mark if we said that this collection brought to ramp summer itself! We just can’t decide what we loved more – the wide belted, wide legged jumpsuit or the breezy shirtdress and shrug outfit! We’ll be giving this collection a decided two thumbs up then.
Not So Serious by Pallavi Mohan – Another one of our runway favorites from AIFW was Pallavi Mohan’s range of summer clothing for her label Not So Serious. Her collection featured fun, quirky pieces with a dash of sporty. The colors were predominantly playful pastels, though darker shades (slate grey specifically) put in a graceful appearance too. Mohan’s play with geometric shapes in glittery textures and her use of see through outerwear totally won us! You can bet we’ll be making some space in our closets for this one.
Frou Frou by Archana Rao – Designer Archana Rao seems to have worked her magic yet again! Sublime fabrics, extremely pretty embroideries, soothing nudes and girly pinks, and elegant figure enhancing silhouettes – these about sum up the entire spring/ summer 2016 collection for Frou Frou. It was all things graceful and charming, with excellent craftsmanship notwithstanding. We love!
Nikhita Tandon – Sizzling body hugging numbers and cut-out dresses were seen on the runway for Nikhita Tandon. White was the dominant color and silhouettes were structured and contoured. We were especially impressed with the strategically placed cuts-outs that gave the outfits a sensual air.
Check back in soon, because we have more AIFW SS16 highlights to dish out! In the meanwhile, you can tell us about your runway favorites in the comments below!
