'And the Mirror Crack'd' to set an upbeat vibe to the season
Mar '09
Trust Anand Kabra to be inspired by the unconventional and out of the ordinary. Chaos and disintegration brought together a collection called …”And the Mirror Crack'd” from the studios of this very talented designer for Fall/Winter 2009 at Lakme Fashion Week.

Using his theme in the most creative manner to present an utterly feminine elegant line, Anand made magic by blending the dark with the light hues. Using black as the base for the garments he gave brief touches of grey, golden yellow, teal and orange for silhouettes gracefully moulded to the body without being too overtly figure hugging in delicate fabrics like organic silk and stretch jersey, that were gently draped around the figure or perfectly finished.

Mirror work was used imaginatively but Anand preferred to cut and file the mirrors and beadwork in circular motifs to add discreet glitter to the geometric designs on leggings, blouses, saris and dresses.

Stunners were the opening black jacket with asymmetric collar and closure, the capped shoulder sheaths, sarong draped jodhpur pants, the grey beaded extended shoulder collar sheath, the black all over mirror work pant and one shoulder tunic and the saris which reflected the same theme but with more drama and elegance.

From using fluid shapes that floated around the body in his past collections, this time it was a starkly tailored and sharply cut ensembles with a touch of retro. Once again it was a winning creative story from Anand Kabra which will appeal to women in India and around the globe.
