TREND FILES : SPRING SUMMER 2011 - Stylish Thoughts

Go Flora

Flowers hit the right note when spring is here. They just spell the imagery on the back of our minds. Hence the trend of flower patterns this spring is no surprise and is a welcome change from the dreariness of the winter. Flowers in all sizes but especially the larger prints are in vogue. Whether a maxi dress or a short dress in the floral pattern everything spells right with just the minimal accessories and shoes. Manoviraj Khosla, Rajesh Pratap Singh and Abraham and Thakore inculcate the flora into scarves, kaftans, tops, scarves in deep colours and vivid patterns making them the perfect spring wear.

White Magic

The colour white symbolized for purity and freshness walks back into your wardrobe though it might have never left for some, with a new perspective. Pristine in its appearance it took over the international circuit at Alexander Wang, Marc Jacobs, Moschino and Chloe and now parades the Indian ramps at Abraham & Thakore and Siddartha Tytler as well. Taking the form of long sleeved staples to tuxedo shirts in new silk blends and breathable linens white is refreshing in the night. Check out the new gold on white magnificence by Siddartha Tytler, white and some of the classics like a good old white shirt at Abraham & Thakore and a white structured dress by Manoviraj Khosla.

Experiments Galore

Frills, floral and prints are getting spring back in the game as true to season. Bright colours and earthy tones in deep hues of red, green and rust, fight for space with the latter taking over the former early on in the game. No style is too bold and minimalist takes a back seat in the form of experimentation. Shoulder lines are getting more emphasis with one shoulder tunics, dresses, puff-sleeves and frills getting more than enough attention on the runways both international and Indian. Revivals of classics like Chanderi, Chikankari and tie & dye in contrasting teams aiming at cleaner lines is the now’s great challenge.

Jackets Redefined

Jackets provide just the versatility that one needs to prep up an outfit with. This season structured forms, zippered details, piping in jackets stood the scrutiny of the runway from Balmain to our very own Rajesh Pratap Singh. Sharply tailored blazers highlighting the masculine form in subdued classic tones set the scene at Manoviraj Khosla. Yet experimenting this classic with confused hemlines, fluid silhouettes and embellishment saw a satirical turn this season.
