'Back to the Hourglass' flirty yet delicate range
Mar '12
The romantic style of the 1950s and 60s came alive in the collection by Arpan Vohra called “Back to the Hourglass” at Lakmé Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2012. Working around his inspiration which was the hourglass, Arpan brought in the form fitting, body hugging, seductive, sexy, silhouettes with an emphasis on the waistline.

The corset made a prominent appearance for many garments giving the creations a sensuous, flirty yet delicate and pretty look. Colour blocking was cleverly used, while subtle detailing on luxuriously layered chiffon gowns or scintillating pencil skirts and cute minis projected the style of the two eras.

Embellishments were discreet as they were used sparingly for the very feminine Summer/Resort line. The show opened with a stunning halter worn with embroidered high waist pencil skirt and then Arpan showed his creativity with a colour blocked white and black one shoulder ruffle dress. The stylized tasselled beige dress, the 20s black fringed mini and the sexy black glass bead evening ruffle gown, were all true to the theme of the show.

The black skinny pants with tulle detail at the back gave a new take on design. The moulded bodice maxi with shoulder detail over a body suit, the halter one sleeve print maxi and the form fitting top with skinny pants gave the models a truly form fitted silhouette.

A mention has to be made of the multi coloured abstract design neckpieces which added to the beauty of the creations. When a woman wants to make that tantalising, flamboyant fashion statement then she will go to Arpan Vohra's collection “Back to the Hourglass” for those compliments.
