Nandita & Samsonite presents a journey of glamour n style
Apr '08
When an international luggage brand and a famous fashion designer join together, the result is an elegant combination of glamour and style.

Samsonite's Black Label line had earlier teamed with ace designer Alexander McQueen in Milan and now with Nandita Mahtani of Ananya at the Lakme Fashion Week for the Autumn/Winter 2008 collection.

The show opened with Bollywood actor, anchor and top model Kelly Dorjee introducing Nandita's men's wear line.

To match the beauty of the Samsonite Black Label luggage, Nandita's creations were an international mix of colour and themes as she wove red, indigo, black, white and beige with tribal braiding, riveting and beading for a nostalgic collection with the 60s and 70s look to match the SBL Trunk, Vintage and Signat lines.

The collection titled 'Life is a Journey' was of the fashionable kind with a combination of African, French, Moroccan and Turkish touches in georgette, chiffon, wool, knit, drill, tweed with hints of crochet.

Feminine layered dresses, flowing minis, sexy gowns, high waist skirts; and luxuriously flared trousers recreated the retro look.

For men's wear Nandita kept it simple and stylish with blazers, pants, jackets, shirts and sweaters in stretch denim, suede, drill and silk with ethnic touches like tie and dye effect and Indian embroidery.

Keeping a restrained hold on embellishments, Nandita preferred toned down metallics for a trendy look. The Samsonite Black Label luggage was a visual treat and a traveller's delight as holiday luggage, handbags, and structured business bags were the ideal accessories for the garments.

With her knowledge of selling at the top stores in the west Nandita Mahtani's 'Life is a Journey' collection inspired by the Samsonite Black Label range was an elegant offering to men and women who appreciate luxury in fashion.
