On Thursday, fashion week in the Capital gave us fall/winter inspiration to take home. From folk prints inspired by travels to sheer necklines and re-imagined capes — there are some takeaways that you need in your wardrobe now. Read on to make sure you are all set for the coming season.
VELVETS CONTINUE TO TREND:
For autumn/winter, Rina Dhaka gave velvet her vote. Her showstopper, actor Vaani Kapoor walked out in a floor-length gown in the fabric, with a sneaky cut-out at the waist. Let next season be all about the luxurious fabric.
A SHOCK OF SHEER FOR THE SEASON, DENIM+DENIM:
Sheer refuses to go off the style radar. Huemn by Pranav Mishra and Shyma Shetty presented a collection high on puffer jackets and sheer dress. For winter, continue to add sheer inputs to your dresses and go for ankle-length boots to top the look. Denim on denim also made a comeback on the runway, and maybe with a jacket, you could triple the trend.
FAUX FUR FOR SOME FALL FUN:
Faux fur has been trending in Milan, Paris and Delhi ramps gave their stamp of approval to the trend too. At Vineet Bahl, fur-trimmed necklines caught our attention. Team leather, faux fur for a grunge-perfect look.
SOME GOLDEN INSPIRATION:
At the National Rail Museum, Samant Chauhan paid a tribute to Assamese Muga Silk, celebrating delicate, luxurious golden threadwork. Men, here are your fashion goals for fall. Pick up handwoven fabrics and go for winter-perfect neutrals in monotones, especially for your suits.
THE FUTURISTIC WINTER CAPE:
Designer duo Pankaj and Nidhi presented a largely monochromatic collection. For the upcoming season, culottes seem to be on trend, along with laser-cut (or intricately hand-carved) statement pieces. We are loving the future-ready cape.
TASSELS, POM-POMS, NATIVE PRINTS:
Souvenirs in the form of travel memories made up Péro by Aneeth Arora’s show at the Crafts Museum. For fall, opt for handcrafted embroideries on cropped toppers and boho midi-skirts with a touch of tassels and colourful pom-poms.
FLORALS ARE NOT JUST A SPRING THING:
At Hemant & Nandita, the designer duo romanced florals in mustards, pastels and monochromes. For autumn, opt for jacquard floral-printed A-line dresses and add that old-school, experimental edge with the socks-and-heels combo to .
PRINT PARTY FOR FALL/WINTER:
Amalgamation of print on print with embroidery added a lot of fun to Patine’s collection. Mish-mash stripes, florals, geometric prints...go for a graphic overload to light up autumn! Cropped boleros are also on-point for the next season.
DITCH FALL GREYS, ADD SOME COLOUR:
She is known for never steering away from bright hues and with her collection, Anupama Dayal’s Mangar-inspired creations gave us #colourgoals for winter. Team scarlets or vermilion red with a leather jacket and you’ll be good to go.
