Nikasha & Nachiket present diverse fashion stories at Lakme ramp

Nikasha and Nachiket Barve presented diverse fashion stories at Lakme Fashion Week spring/summer 2010.

From the Land of the Rising Sun the soft delicate shades of lotus pink, lilac, peach, terracotta, lavender and vibrant tones of fuchsia and finally coral gave the utterly feminine collection called “In Full Bloom” from Nikasha an ethereal look. Created entirely in the softest of silk, chiffon and georgette the comfortable easy lines of the garments resembled the oriental beauty of the kimono but in a more contemporary mode.

Softly draped layered blouses, fluid sharara pants, draped tops, sheer petal pants, cross over draped tunic, wrap around trousers and skirts, flowing culottes or pleated panelled skirts, shirts, tunics and capris floated down the ramp. Asymmetry played an important role in most of the garments as hemlines swirled around the models often interspersed with contrasting godets. The absolutely stunning kimono embroidery of cherry blossom trees and blooming peonies was so fine; it could be mistaken for a print and appeared on shoulders, down the side of a pretty blouse or on the back and sleeves of the ensembles.

The fine piping in white satin glistened on the edges, giving the garments and almost dream-like quality. Nikasha once again scored with a stunning collection for the coming season that every woman will desire.

While it was a collection of opposites not only in its unconventional title, “Toxin” which is far removed from fashion; in its colours, silhouettes, embellishments and structures the line was a great summer offering. Nachiket Barve moved away from his forte, which is construction, for Lakme Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2010 and instead, married fluidity with rigidity, the long with the short and played with colours and graphic patterns.

There was an air of transparency in the layering of chiffon, georgette, crepe, shot silk, organza, Lurex and tabby for dresses, tunics, layered separates and finally a solitary trouser (which has never been attempted by Nachiket). A riot of colours from black, white, red, green, turquoise, blue, navy to silver and metallic white, purple and green dazzled down the ramp in striking contrasts. Motifs like octopus tentacles, coral polyps, appliqué 3D folds, Shibori and resist dyeing added to the glamour of the creations.

The show opened with a mosaic appliqué Mexican peplum jacket in multi-coloured shades with a Shibori dyed cascade skirt with organza hem. Using the theme beautifully, the sea anemone dress with raised sequin straps, the flutter organza appliqué short strappy dress with sequin straps, lovely layered flared Shibori cascade back dress and the patched organza layered dress with colour blocked silk lining and double neck detailing were some of the eye catchers in a splendid collection.

It was a refreshing intricately crafted summer line from Nachiket Barve that will appeal to fashionistas for Spring/Summer 2010.
