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:

Actor Vaani Kapoor along with designer Rina Dhaka.

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:

Creations by label Huemn on the runway.

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:

Vineet Bahl’s creations on the ramp on Day 2 of fashion week.

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:

Muga Silk was the backbone of designer Samant Chauhan’s collection.

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:

The cape got a makeover at Pankaj and Nidhi.

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:

Creations by Péro at the off-site showcase at the Crafts Museum.

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:

Hemant-Nandita’s collection celebrated autumnal florals.

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:

High-on-print styling at Patine.

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:

Anupama Dayal’s collection was inspired by the forest.

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.
