LFW ramp glints with designer Lalit's 'Sylvan Swain' charm
Mar '14
Lalit Sengar’s debut collection at Lakmé Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2014 was called “Sylvan Swain” that was inspired by the Art Nouveau era when ornamental style and architecture was prevalent. Combining form, texture, space and colour, the asymmetric lines were perfect with the right touches of style and creativity. When cutting edge construction and perfect tailoring met, then the result had to be great. 
Presenting a predominantly men’s wear collection with just three printed layered silk gowns for women, the construction was unconventional and Avant Garde in nature with Lalit allowing his creativity to push the envelope.
Giving an old world charm to the garments, Lalit used Indian textiles like cotton, Chanderi, linen and added his design sensibilities with block prints, hand embroidery and screen prints. Opting for a palette of pastels like beige, ecru, grey and white; the collection had a variety of flowing and constructed pieces. Solids and prints came in subtle unison to present an interesting result.
One-button sleeveless double breasted jacket with printed lining, voluminous pants, waistcoats with shoulder detailing, sloppy Tees and geometric patchwork added stylish touches to the ensembles. A printed giant flat collar jacket had solid sleeves, while the trouser silhouette was wide.
Ending the show was VJ and actor Purab Kohli who strutted down the ramp sporting a printed jacket with button detailing, worn with baggy salwar pants.
Putting an emphasis on multiple layers and drapes for separates with mix and match options, Lalit Sengar offered a timeless quality for his collection.
