Wendell's 'Timeless' ends Day Two of LFW with blue ramp

From Wendell Rodricks, it was an ethereal collection called “Timeless” presented by Himalayan that enthralled the audience during the final show on Day Two at Lakmé Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2012.

Inspired by a variety of ideas, which were unconventional  -  like the zero, the sari, kurta, dhoti, and drapes of Indian garments  - Wendell selected colours that have been his favourite. White, black, grey, gold, skin, cranberry, brown were blended skilfully with bright hues of fuchsia, saffron, deep orange, sun yellow and ice glacial water. 

Seven shimmering abstract shapes hung from the ceiling of the grand Ballroom at the Hotel Grand Hyatt to denote suspended water bodies; while the blue ramp extended amongst the bright ramp lights. Dividing the show into four segments, Wendell displayed his prowess over innovative construction for the 44 garments. Opening the display with the “Circles and Indian Geometry” section, the black crepe silk tunic looped to create pockets, the combo of peacock satin long line tie-up choli, yellow skirt, grey kurta, multi kali waistcoat and striking Dupatta were dramatic entries.

Men’s wear was a black satin silk unisex shirt with a square cut dhoti. Detailing was discreet in its shimmer as felt, pearls and sequins embroidery blended beautifully with the fabrics.

For the “Arcs and Loops” segment, Wendell opened with a white linen kurta, slim trousers and silk organza waistcoat for men. Here the designer was partial only to white linen and silk for some of the interesting entries like the scooped one-shoulder tunic, asymmetrical top teamed with satin sharara trousers and crepe tunic with rose petal organza neckline.

The delicately striking piping on the shawls, square silk organza shrugs and bias tunics, highlighted the beauty of the fluid flowing creations. When it came to the section “Western Neutrals in Kurta Avatars”, Wendell kept the colours muted for grey dolman sleeve kurta, a sailor collar trapeze version and the very imaginative combo of poncho with sari inspired hem, matched with saffron satin trousers. Men’s wear was in berry brown for crepe lungi with a saffron, sunshine yellow and raani border, while the kali long waistcoat and looped shawl edged in satin silk was a dramatic vision of colour, cut
and style.

Finally it was the “Himalayan Red Carpet” collection with stunning colours, combinations and sexy silhouettes that ended the show on a high note. The satin pleated cape gown, backless kaftan in raani pink silk and the very sexy black Lycra choli-sari fusion vision with multi coloured Patti detailing set the pace for the finale section. The crepe silk maxi with peacock blue ribbon trails and the georgette sari-gown with twisted décolleté and sari pallav drape created dramatic magic.

The square cut cowl dhoti worn with a peacock blue edged sherwani on the male model, gave a unique style statement for the masculine wardrobe.
