LFW melts into seductive aura of Nupur's 'Noir Jahaan'
Mar '14
Moving into the past when seduction in vintage cinemas of Europe, Hollywood and Bollywood played a major role, Nupur Kanoi’s collection called “Noir Jahaan” for her Lakmé Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2014 was inspired by the feminine femme fatales of yesteryears. 
Referring to boudoir elements along with the hourglass figure and inspirations from hints of men’s wear, Nupur created a mélange of contemporary designs. Drawing ideas also from North Indian dancers and courtesans, the collection was enduringly beautiful in style and structure. 
Opting for sensuous lace, sheer chiffon, satin, crêpe, corsetry, abstract fishnet and scallops prints along with Chikan Kari, the designer worked her magic for separates and wearable ensembles. 
Dividing the collection into three colour stories of black, grey and taupe, Nupur created utterly feminine creations that kept the audience thrilled with the designing touches. Black crushed chiffon and lace embroidered jumpsuit, the egg shaped maxi dress with eyelets, the “U” kurta, printed baby doll top with ultra wide trousers and the sari-shirt dress were impressive. 
The sari-skirt, kurta-dress, angarkha jacket worn over circular skirt/straight trousers and the final embellished plunge “V” blazer-like kalidaar kurta with georgette churidars were superbly crafted.
The crisply, carefully edited collection was ideal summer formal wear with its easy comfortable silhouettes, which will add to the practical requirements of fashion conscious women. Adding a slight risqué touch, Nupur ensured that the line of garments had the perfect blend of exotic sex appeal and effortless ease.
When women want to make that femme fatale impression, wherever they go, the “Noir Jahaan” collection by Nupur Kanoi will turn them into irresistible ladies.
