Of navys and whites
Staying true to this favourite hue, navy, Manish spinned it in a number of ways and had our jaw drop on each one. Inspired by modern day romanticism, we absolutely devoured the sheer navy dress-style kurtas, zip saris, and summer skirt lehengas with pockets. Adding much contrast, he softened the edge of navy with mirror work and fine embroidery in beige and ivory.
Bandgalas in skin tones
Slim pants in the ‘brown’ spectrum were our next favourite. Manish gave the bandgala a modern-day twist, mixing it up with high front-slit kurtas and slim pants in caramel brown, beige and skin tones. This was overlayed with very feminine mirror work and hand embroidery in ivory. Silk was a predominant fabric for this line.
Pretty pink and florals
Trust Manish to do a somersault in a show that spans twenty minutes. Downplaying the edgy vibe of navy and the simplicity of neutral, he infused a line of pretty pinks and watercolour print florals to take his inspiration of romanticism to a dream-like plane. Floral crop tops matched with flared and billowing skirts that kissed the floor brought much grace and sweetness to the line. High neck floor length dresses in pastel florals flared from the waist down in soft pleats.
