Ace fashion designer Ritu Kumar unveiled new creations at the ongoing Lakme Fashion Week/Festive 2017. Sweet Surrender, Ritu Kumar's fashion label, was the inspiration from the 18th century fashion era. It added a deliberate dishabille look of the 80’s to bring about an apotheosis of the two eras where modern fashion and refinements were concerned. 

The colour card of ‘Sweet Surrender’ started with soft pastel hues and was contrasted with tropical prints like unconventional fruits and striking bold blossoms. Sorbet tones of peach and Prosecco appeared in perfect unison with canary yellow, as well as minty melons, which interspersed with vibrant splashes of calico blue and red. Adding to the flavour of the collection were the embellished textiles that brought the style quotient to the forefront.

Presenting a melodious fashion symphony, the label Ritu Kumar brought on the ramp an asymmetric cold-shoulder midi with summer blossoms print, mini trapeze outfit, slinky blue leaf printed off-shoulder creation with side cascade and a sexy pale blue tulle full-flared midi skirt over a provocative white body suit. The mustard frilled one-shoulder midi with a striking white crochet cummerbund, the black ruffled will-power jumpsuit with white corset and the black/white foliage printed maxi were just perfect for surrendering to fashion’s latest trends.

The Label Ritu Kumar’s shirtdresses were prominent on the ramp along with stylish asymmetric tops, some with an off-shoulder accent, while the cute trendy minis completed the look. Giving life to the collection was the every apt selection of chambray, schiffly and tulle, which were used as frills and ruffles to project an ultra-glam, feminine look. Mesh stockings and the crochet cummerbunds were the prime accessories.

Bollywood actor Disha Patani turned showstopper for the designer in white shorts under a sheer, white, corset, asymmetric, will-power creation that shimmered with splashes of rose embroidery. (RR)
