Rimi Nayak unleashes alphabets & words onto summer wear
Mar '13
Her inspiration was indeed very unique with the Bengali letter forms and alphabets splashed on the fluid silhouettes. Rimi Nayak’s collection called “Letter Flow” unleashed alphabets and words onto stylish summer wear at Lakmé Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2013.

The line of resort wear - dresses, trousers, tops and saris brought a variety of looks for the jet setting holiday makers. Monochromes along with shades of blue were the basis of the colour palette; while sudden highlights with pink, green and yellow created a vibrant relief.

Embellishments revolved around digital and block printing techniques, which were cleverly blended with cutwork and appliqués to present eye catching surface texturing.

The opening of the show was a slinky white satin toga with a black circular print. The look moved to a simple dress, then onto draped maxis, shirt dresses with attached cowls, saris worn with soft kurtas, kaftans, some basic blouses and a jacket with embroidered calligraphy.

Fabrics were very soft and fluid with georgette, fresh crêpe, hand woven handloom cotton along with satin and raw silk that gave the garments a soft sensuous feel.

There was understated beauty about the creations as the prints were very subdued but gave an interesting appeal to the entries. The final deep blue cutwork gown worn with a white embroidered cover was a regal addition.

Paying tribute to the Bengali language, Rimi Nayak’s quirkily titled collection had all the fashionable hot selling directions.

It was sheer glamour that highlighted the natural beauty of nature when Shikha and Vinita offered a bouquet of fashion to the appreciative audience.
