'Button Masala' & 'The Melting Architecture' delight LFW audience

Anuj Sharma and Arjun Saluja gave trendy directions for Spring/Summer 2010 at Lakme Fashion Week.

With buttons and button holes as a theme can a collection be created? Well, when the designer is Anuj Sharma anything is possible! His “Button Masala” collection gave the audience a lot to think above the next time they fasten their garments in the traditional manner. Allowing the wearer to join in with his creative talents, Anuj felt that the humble button and its opening should be given importance on the ramp; so garments had multiple possibilities as the wearer can change the silhouettes according her whims and fancies.

Working around three colours – red, black and off-white with a touch of nude thrown, in Anuj sprinkled them with multi-coloured buttons in grid pattern keeping the silhouette either tubular, toga like, asymmetric or slightly fluid. Balanced on multiple straps that were buttoned to the body of the garment, the collection was ideal for summer. Allowing the fabric to fall in its natural form over the body and then buttoning the garment at various strategic points Anuj showed a simple but very effective line.

His advice to budding designers is, to take a rectangular fabric, add a square grid of 1-2 inches and attach buttons on intersecting points of the grid, and then fix straps, add button holes and then let your imagination run wild. But can everyone be as imaginative as Anuj Sharma is the question? Once more Anuj Sharma delighted the wearer and the viewer with his strong creative directions.

It was a structured collection that followed its title “The Melting Architecture” for women's and men's wear worked around solids and geometric, smudgy and micro check prints in black, brown, grey and white for crepe, net, georgette and satin. Arjun Saluja for his label Rishta, proved once again that his offering for each season is something quite spectacular and unconventional.The silhouettes moved into a complex scheme as ruffled, tiered, geometric butterfly blouses or long tubes with front ruffles were balanced by men's abstract print dhoti and space age shirts or lungis which were the offering for the season.

A black layered cape cover, a large all-in-one hooded checked grey silk dress, full salwars with black shirt or draped capris for men were silhouettes that were purely part of a very unconventional line of garments. While the theme was very structured, the end result was a very flowing yet complex line for both men's and women's wear which will be a style statement from Arjun Saluja to watch out for during the coming season.
