No shine look & My Village hit Lakme ramp

 

 
 

 


 

 


 

 

 
  Kallol Datta and Rimzim Dadu gave interesting fashion directions for S/S 2010   at Lakme Fashion Week.
 
  Using natural fabrics like kora, cotton, mul, voile, net and crepe, Kallol   Datta moved away from conventional fashion as usual and went for the No shine   look with his signature prints for Spring/Summer 2010 at Lakme Fashion Week.
 
  Last season it was the stark mannequin motif that appeared on his garments and   as jewellery. This time his prints were dragonflies, bees and Him and Her logo   prints which appeared for the �Avant Garde F�ck� collection in geometric forms   under his label Kallol Datta 1955. The colours were limited to ecru, pink,   jade, black and beige but it was the construction of the garments that was   characteristic of the designer. Drapes appeared at the hem and at the back,   dual tones were used for front wrap dresses and the silhouette was egg shaped   with fullness at the midriff graduating down or in front.
 
  The 20 pieces was a thinking person�s collection that was starkly simple and   elegant, but with a lot of interesting construction elements that Kallol is   famous for. It is difficult to single out any of the outfits, since each one   will be a great seller with people who want stylish interesting conversation   pieces. But the lopsided dress with drapes on the side, the junta wrap   overlay, the swinging dress and the winged hem on one side, or the net over   solid jade, were part of a great collection.
 

 

Although Kallol Datta has   followed his silhouette lines of last season, there is a bit of reinvention he   added, which will make this collection also a hit with the young trendy   dressers for Spring/Summer 2010.
 
  For her label �My Village� Rimzim Dadu presented a pleasant mix of matte and   shine garments for Spring/ Summer 2010 at Lakme Fashion week. The glitter part   in her collection was a bit of a surprise from Rimzim who experimented with   hand burnt sequins, metallic cutouts and cage like dresses – which are a   favourite with Rimzim since she had similar ones last season with intricate   cutwork.
 
  Fabrics were sheer or solid � organza, jersey, chiffon in colours that were   neutral cr�me, yellow, black, grey, red and orange.The metallic section had   covers which were beautifully made and worn over pleated organza ombre dress,   or layered gauze top and short or a sexy draped jersey dress and an asymmetric   pleated jersey dress. The cutout segment was teamed with draped jersey top and   shorts in a grey, a cr�me combo of a multi coloured cutout and patch floral   top in orange yellow with chiffon maroon top and the floral cutout organza   dress.
 
  An interesting striped nude zippered pleated dress was an elegant evening   option, while the hand burnt sequins quartet of shimmering dresses and tops   had the amazing cage jacket in red with a black top with gauze lining while   another interesting item was an asymmetric pleated jersey dress with a   metallic cutout grid jacket in gold – all made for dramatic cocktail wear.
