Versatile handbags

Everything contemporary and unisex, Square Loop by Kanika Sachdeva offered an array of leather backpacks, duffels and laptop bags in neutral colours with a clean design sensibility. Our take: 90’s boxy waist bags to make a statement everyday and oversized laptop bags as clutches to add bold touches.

Dressy practical wear

Armaan Aiman showcased a collection of dressy and delicate functional day and evening wear on light canvases with pink and dreamy floral and alligator appliqués and the dramatic flora and fauna giving their creations an elegant flavour. We could bank upon this dress as our go-to piece for a romantic dinner with beau and for post work soirées.

Wearable weapons

Teresa Laisom and Utsav Pradhan armored the increasing crime rate against women with fun pistol prints on their collection of dresses, jumpsuits and blouses through their label Munkee.See.Munkee.Doo. While assorted pleats gave their garments a hint of feminine flounce we think they nailed it with their fierce prints being the highlight of the season this time.
