Paras & Shalini show sea-inspired collection on WIFW
Oct '13
Moving into a new space, The Geisha girl from Paras & Shalini is now Younger and Bolder. Her spirit remains rooted in romance but now with a new carefree attitude. Cuts are cooler, silhouettes are younger, with the introduction of more separates. The unpredictability in the flow of the show is its unique factor.

Silhouettes: Clean, sporty cuts, shift dresses contrasted with romantic flowing ballerina skirt and dhoti inspired drapes & peg skirts are prominent in the collection.

Embellishments & Colours:  Pastels play a big part in this collection, blush pink, sky blue and dusty lavender speak the loudest against deep oranges and reds. Soft aqua, Sand, Chalky corals, morning blush punctuated with bright neons is intent on having fun. Coral like lacy patterns, Spray of neon, play of transparencies and opacities and shadow like Applique work & Embroidery.

Paras and Shalini have taken their direct inspiration from the sea. Lagoons, populated with an expanse of chalky white corals. The rush of fish flying past leaving sparks of colour. Gardens of big bright anemones flowering below the sea.  Frothy water rushing to engulf the sand on the shore, and pulling back just as quickly. Against the backdrop of

Key Fabrics are Silk Tulle, Lycra jerseys, chiffons, georgettes, Dentelle/ Chantilly and Organzas. Bold earrings, complementing and contrasting colours of shoes, metallic shades for a hint of cool.  The Hair and makeup is Light and fresh, the barely there look, accented by hot lip stains. Champagne gold Nails complete the look. Romantic country side vocals fused with pop contemporary (Nicholas Jaar, Daft Punk..) set the mood.
