So, we are half way through the iconic Lakme Fashion Week and the third day has been nothing less than amazing, filled with futuristic trends, amazing street style and lots of celebrity spotting.
One of my favourite parts of fashion week is the quirky street style on display, and day three did not disappoint. All of our favourite Indian fashion bloggers were at their stylish best, as expected. I spied a lot of fresh hues like white and mint green, combined with chunky silver jewellery and an occasional red lip – it truly felt like the celebration of summer! It must be mentioned that these lovely ladies had their hair game on point, as they were treated to some super cool hairstyling by TIGI India at the Bed Head event in the Lakme Fashion Week apartment. So jealous!
One of the biggest highlights of the day was the showcasing of Gauri Khan’s collection for Satya Paul. Seriously, is there anything that this woman cannot do?! Aptly named ‘A Tropical Wonder’, the collection featured beautiful prints inspired by palm trees, flowing typography, ombre hues that reminded me of paradise and flowing silhouettes that made me want to take a beach vacation right now. The delicious citrus palette is absolutely perfect for the season, too. Bahamas, here I come!
Another label that hit the sweet spot was Arunima Majhi and Surbhi Shekhar. To my mind, this feminine collection embodies everything that we love about the summertime, and then takes it up a few notches. To be honest, I was sold at the artful use of pastel shades like lavendar purple, sea green, baby blue and subtle cream – a palette that screams summer like nothing else. What really stole my heart away, however, was a stunning dress that transitioned from white to dark blue and featured sheer panelling on the chest. Love, love, LOVE!
When it came to prints, Babita M definitely stole the show. With tribal prints, natural motifs and feather earrings, the collection was a markedly modern take on nature. Several elements came together to make this show a highlight of the day – the eyecatching prints, the classy rendition of tie-dye, the sheer details, the juxtaposition of black with light blue and the bold accessories. Of course, Soha Ali Khan as the showstopper was the icing on the cake and her entire ensemble was downright fierce, from the maang tikka to the beautiful printed skirt and sexy crop top.
In a nutshell, the three major trends that emerged for the summer were pastel colours, gauzy silhouettes and nature-inspired fashion. Ladies, are you feeling as excited about these trends as I am?
