'La Cosa Nostra' collection will appeal to global buyer
Aug '12
Rajat K Tangri's collection called “La Cosa Nostra” at Lakmé Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2012 had soft silhouettes but with dark overtones of the baroque era and was a veritable feast for the eyes on the ramp.

Rajat presented an elegant stylish men's and women's look for the coming season in rich fabrics especially woven from Italy and Japan. Shades of nude and beige accompanied by tones of teal, verdant green, ink and black were highlighted with touches of metallic gold.
Embroidery was luxurious with 3D metallic and crystal work inspired by the Art Deco jewellery which complemented the clothes perfectly in a tonal form. Fabric options moved from jersey, chiffon, satin, tulle, georgette to leather, and textured materials.  
Women's wear revolved around stately gowns, stylish dresses, well-tailored suits and jumpsuits.
Peplums appeared for dresses, sequin sheeting added intense glitter, while tonal embroidery highlighted shoulders, sides of outfits, waists, lapels or the complete garments.  
The six Men's wear garments ranged from sporty biker jackets and jumpsuits to sharply cut jackets with detailed construction. Colours were vibrant for the strong sex as verdant green was seen for a suit while nude leather added to the crispness of jackets. The black trench coat pants with black lace shirt and the suit with shimmering lapels were aimed at the metro sexual male. The final entry – a glitzy black lace hand-embroidered gown ended a show with great aplomb.  
The very interesting platform shoes with artistic heels, the Art Deco inspired jewellery by Roopa Vohra and bags by Deepa Gurnani gave Rajat’s collection “La Cosa Nostra” the perfect dramatic touches and added to the glam quotient, which will appeal to the global buyer.
