No shine look & My Village hit Lakme ramp

Kallol Datta and Rimzim Dadu gave interesting fashion directions for S/S 2010 at Lakme Fashion Week.

Using natural fabrics like kora, cotton, mul, voile, net and crepe, Kallol Datta moved away from conventional fashion as usual and went for the No shine look with his signature prints for Spring/Summer 2010 at Lakme Fashion Week.

Last season it was the stark mannequin motif that appeared on his garments and as jewellery. This time his prints were dragonflies, bees and Him and Her logo prints which appeared for the “Avant Garde F'ck” collection in geometric forms under his label Kallol Datta 1955. The colours were limited to ecru, pink, jade, black and beige but it was the construction of the garments that was characteristic of the designer. Drapes appeared at the hem and at the back, dual tones were used for front wrap dresses and the silhouette was egg shaped with fullness at the midriff graduating down or in front.

The 20 pieces was a thinking person's collection that was starkly simple and elegant, but with a lot of interesting construction elements that Kallol is famous for. It is difficult to single out any of the outfits, since each one will be a great seller with people who want stylish interesting conversation pieces. But the lopsided dress with drapes on the side, the junta wrap overlay, the swinging dress and the winged hem on one side, or the net over solid jade, were part of a great collection.

Although Kallol Datta has followed his silhouette lines of last season, there is a bit of reinvention he added, which will make this collection also a hit with the young trendy dressers for Spring/Summer 2010.

For her label 'My Village' Rimzim Dadu presented a pleasant mix of matte and shine garments for Spring/ Summer 2010 at Lakme Fashion week. The glitter part in her collection was a bit of a surprise from Rimzim who experimented with hand burnt sequins, metallic cutouts and cage like dresses - which are a favourite with Rimzim since she had similar ones last season with intricate cutwork.

Fabrics were sheer or solid – organza, jersey, chiffon in colours that were neutral crème, yellow, black, grey, red and orange.The metallic section had covers which were beautifully made and worn over pleated organza ombre dress, or layered gauze top and short or a sexy draped jersey dress and an asymmetric pleated jersey dress. The cutout segment was teamed with draped jersey top and shorts in a grey, a crème combo of a multi coloured cutout and patch floral top in orange yellow with chiffon maroon top and the floral cutout organza dress.

An interesting striped nude zippered pleated dress was an elegant evening option, while the hand burnt sequins quartet of shimmering dresses and tops had the amazing cage jacket in red with a black top with gauze lining while another interesting item was an asymmetric pleated jersey dress with a metallic cutout grid jacket in gold - all made for dramatic cocktail wear.

Rimzim Dadu is known for intricately crafted clothes and each season she has experimented with different genres to embellish her garments and give them her characteristic creative touches. For the coming season she offers some glittering options.
