Kallol Datta makes a great impact on the Lakme ramp
Mar '11
DHL presented the future of fashion with the amazing collections of Kallol Datta for summer/resort 2011 at lakmé fashion week .

Known for his quirky prints and edgy construction Kallol Datta for his label Kallol Datta 1955 went into vibrant colour mode wih hot tones of red, brown and yellow as the base hues for Summer/Resort 2011 at Lakmé Fashion Week.

Carrying forward the “Jailstripes” “Checkered” and “Illustration” themes, Kallol returned with his prints for a predominantly western line having interesting ethnic closures. The fabric choice was varied ranging from Swiss voile, Habutai to net and kora. Kallol, known for his interesting construction techniques, had lean 3D shapes and patterns that merged with prints and layering while unconventional texturing was achieved with fabric cones.

The tie-dye 3D tie-up kurta and matching skinnies that opened the show set the mood of the collection. A pretty orange check top, shorts and a tasseled scarf had Kallol's distinct style. The checkered sari with a 3D pleated mini and underskirt revealed Kallol's sense of style while the cowled pants and tunic in he same series were interesting.

The daring swinging apron with the open back in the illustration series was teamed with skinnies. Last season Kallol was applauded for his straitjacket sari and skirt which he repeated but in a red and black combo. For a slightly more formal look, the tasseled maxi will get the wearer many compliments.

But it was however with the final entry from the Illustration series called Satya Saran dress that revealed Kallol's subtle sene of humor. The female form printed on the red dress had an unusual rear interest – a floor length bunch of yarns plaited from the yoke that paid a tribute to veteran journalist Satya Saran's crowning glory.

For arresting Summer/Resort 2011 creations, Kallol Datta made a great impact on the ramp at Lakmé Fashion Week.
