Manish Malhotra creates magic at LFW Summer/Resort 2010
Mar '10
Manish Malhotra's love for India was very evident in the beautiful collection that he showed at Lakmé Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2010.

Inspired by the sea side holiday resort of St Tropez, Manish celebrated the beauty of his country, and worked with fabrics and silhouettes but gave them a young peppy stylish twist. Kurtas were one shoulder in shape, and while the dupatta went missing, there was luxurious layering. Leggings with sparkling touches were important to Manish which he teamed with kurtas.

Colours were pastel with a hint of shading, while net as the base fabric, worked for a pair of dhoti pants and sheer floor length covers over sexy bikinis and transparent anarkali kurtas.

With kaleidoscopic geometric jersey additions, the collection moved stylishly as diaphanous kurtas edged with velvet borders or embroidered touches swirled down the ramp. Net and chiffon saris were teamed with churidars and the 'net over prints' concept created a great sexy effect for the garments; while satin and silk worked for micro shorts in shades of old gold.

There was a distinct partiality towards the bundgala around which Manish showered his creativity. Trousers were cowled and comfortable for men's wear in different textures. Casual wear moved from white shirts with billowy sleeves to T-shirts and pastel coloured bundgala jackets with a variety of collars and closures which ranged from one to two buttons and clusters of three. Contrast piping edged collars, pockets and plackets giving the garment a contemporary feel.

It was a fun filled colourful resort line which Manish Malhotra presented and it will definitely create ripples on the fashion scene for the coming season.
