Vivek recreated grandeur past with touches of future at Day 4 LFW
Apr '08
Inspired by the past, Vivek Kumar's collection for Autumn/ Winter 2008 at the Lakme Fashion Week titled 'The Lost King' had women's wear which was not all sugar and spice and every thing nice; but strong, commanding, aggressive, fierce and had shades of an Astro-Gladiator.

From the first entry of a grey knit draped dress, the look moved to a printed pinafore over brown long sleeve Tee, bubble knit blouses, full sleeve pin tuck dresses with printed and quilted yokes, heavy knit jackets and slinky horizontal striped brown dresses.

The colour story was earthy and dull with grey, brown, rust, black, deep green, moss, for knits textures, cottons, and loose weaves.

The silhouettes were simple like the smock empire line with corset blouses thrown in and double bubble skirts, draped Bermudas, cropped harem pants, dhoti pants, pinafores and finally body suits adding to the tough look. Drapes appeared for bottom wear as well as for dresses; and the body belts gave the garments a military look.

When it came to adding glitter it was metallic discs which at times covered the complete smock dresses or for tiny shrugs or on bodices.

In spite of a very unusual inspiration, Vivek Kumar scored with his collection as it was very apt for the season as well as the theme of his choice and although it had an avant garde look for the garments, they were very wearable and perfect for the coming season.
