Komal Sood’s memories of Egypt and the rolling sands of the Sahara Desert were turned into inspirations for her Lakmé Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2013 collection called “La Mirage”.

Unleashing a line of ultra-glamorous creations for stylish women and men, the designer highlighted the various garments with clumps of embroidery and sheeting patterns. Komal moved into a trendy mood with prêt silhouettes, which were aimed at the formal wear category.

Tops, shirts, waistcoats, skirts, dresses, gowns, jackets and trousers appeared in quick succession. Staying true to the sandy tones, the colours were a mix of muted hues that moved onto glitter as sandy beige and greyish blue turned into shimmering gold and silver.

Restricting the men’s wear to four entries, Komal had one-button jacket, textured waistcoat, Jodhpuri jacket in ecru and modern tuxedo. When it came to women’s wear, Komal opened with a pair of silver sequin sheeting pants matched to a brown sheer cover. Soon draped gowns in Grecian silhouettes floated down the catwalk.

The blue grey ruffled sheath, a feathered mini with a sequinned bodice and a shaded pink sequin mini moved onto centre stage. Gold metallic discs covered tiny minis and skirts worn with sloppy dolman sleeve blouses.

Glitter was abundant for strappy summer dresses, blousoned minis, shimmering cigarette pants with cascading ruffle blouse, one-shoulder togas and the final silver will-power gown with a sexy high slit.  Like a mirage, Komal Sood’s collection was aimed at the New Age dressers who desire attention wherever they go.
