Masaba Gupta @ Satya Paul Wifw A/w 13

14th March 2013

The much anticipated Masaba Gupta for Satya Paul opened Wills Lifestyle Fashion Week A/w 13 yesterday. And what a show?! AMAZINGGGG! Masaba injected her fun, quirky and youthful style to the brand. The stunning prints revolved around pop art style telephone boxes and lipstick motifs as well as a Jackson Pollock-esque splatter print. The base colours were whites, blacks and greys with bursts of neon lime, pink and orange and silhouettes included saris, simple shifts, kaftans and a great range of accessories. This super commercial collection will fly out of stores and bring a younger audience to the great brand which is exactly what they hoped for by appointing Masaba as creative director.

Wills India Fashion Week S/s 13

18th Oct 2012

Forgive me for this snapshot of a post on WIFW S/s 13– I’m suffering from Fashion Week analysis fatigue. I covered Lakme Fashion Week on the blog recently and have been trawling through all the London, Paris, N.Y & Milan coverage for the day job so I am one fashed –out girl!

Here are my fav five collections, they are not posted in any particular order.

Namrata Joshipura collection had a plethora of hot trends- sheer layering, oriental florals, iridescent
embellishment and uber hot 7/8th trousers. My fave pieces of hers are always the jumpsuits or trouser and shirt combos because she always manages to make traditionally masculine shapes ohhh so sexy.

Manish Malhotra collection was beautiful, I love the subdued colour palette of earthy tones with pops of fuchsia and amber. The chikan work pieces were timeless.

Okay all you socialites put down those Herve Leger dresses, here is luxury body con 2013 style- gorgeous textures and placements by
Rohit Gandhi & Rahul Khanna

Kallol Datta 1955 collection was full of beautiful voluminous silhouettes and strong graphic prints.

I love the graphic prints, asymmetric hems and neon pops at Gaurav Gupta

All these collections have interesting textures & silhouettes with only a hint of embellishment in places which to me feels really fresh right now.

I might not have done a comprehensive trend report for WIFW but here’s a mini synopsis of some key crossover trends seen on the S/s 13 catwalks (London, Paris, Milan, N.Y, Lakme & WIFW)

Touch of the Orient (AM: PM, Prada & Arjun Saluja)

Graphic prints (Generally seen in Black & White at Marc Jacobs, Kallol Datta and James Ferreira)

Iridescence (Rajesh Pratap Singh, Balmain & Louis Vuitton)

Sheer (Haider Ackermann, Bodice, Namrata Joshipura)

Volume – fullness seen in sleeve heads through to full hips or in inflated cape shapes. (Ritu Kumar, Miu Miu, Kallol Datta 1955)
