Sailex presents line from 'Dressing Down to Dressing Up'
Mar '13
Sailex presented versatile fashion for glamorous events at Lakmé Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2013. From dressing down to dressing up, Sailex showed a wide spectrum of apparel. His linen day suits looked ideal for a garden safari; while the utterly feminine sheer chiffon dresses, beaded skirts and gowns had that elegant sophisticated evening look.

For women who want statement pieces that create a fashionable chatter at any event, the kaftan-maxis had perfect design directions. When it came to understated separates, Sailex offered T-shirts that could be mixed and matched effortlessly.

Colours were beautifully serene, speaking a summer language with buttercup hues, rose wine and champagne appearing in a pleasant mix. Choosing the rose motif, Sailex allowed it to blossom in varying forms as embellishments and textures. Detailing took a more diverse route with a hint of safari and military as well as masculine touches along with contrasting casual sporty chic.

The first creation down the ramp was a textured jacket and pant, while the sexy shorts, cropped top, tiny mini with slit, the bralet with a high waist embroidered skirt, the midi with a sheer back and flared skirt revealed a line up of very feminine evening wear.

The calf length pencil skirt, a very lean maxi shirt waister, will-power jumpsuit with wrap skirt and pleated pants with sheer/opaque long sleeve top were elegant. The solitary satin sari with a giant sequined pallav was the only Indian offering in the show. The final group of sequinned sheath, the bare shoulder gown with a sensuous slit and the rose jacket with sheer one-shoulder completed the collection.

The detailing that linked the creations was the sheer effect for various parts of the garments like the back, shoulder, neck, sleeves, and bodice that gave the otherwise sober silhouettes, a discreet sensuality.

It was apparent Sailex had his fingers on the pulse of the women’s wear market with his sleek but elegant collection, which was ideal for the Summer/Resort 2013 season.
