Star designer Rohit Bal struck the right 'Balance' between creativity and sensuousness as he lived up to the expectations and presented a very individualistic collection at the Lakme India Fashion Week.

Reflecting a strong influence of history and the tug-of-war between freedom and bondage, Bal's collection of menswear including pure white cable-knitted full length jackets, skirts and pants also had a range of black dhoti inspired wrap-flap pants and elaborately embroidered jackets in brown and burnished red.

Magnificent capes and ponchos, crocheted wraps were used as accessories.

The use of bird motifs as embellishment with strong soaring Navajo eagles and hens embroiedered and printed was outstanding.

The jackets were made of richly coloured pink, orange, blue and multi-hued quilted silk brocades were embroidered to princely perfection with fine silver and gold threads. Teaming of the jackets with massive crinkled skirts balanced out the overtly masculine sexiness with feminine elegance.

The range also included some tribal red and black pants and jackets.

The sense of bondage was created by the regular use of a multitude of long leather straps and silver buckles which was countered by the display of bold bare-chested males who walked the ramp amidst loud rounds of applause.
