Day one at Lakme India Fashion Week witnessed designers moving away from extravagant bling, eccentric colours and loud embroidery motifs which our local ramps are otherwise celebrated for. In contrary to the popular belief, designers sent out clean and crisp garments with minimal outlook. Simplicity is elegantly juxtaposed with luxury to derive the new pared-down chic. Glamour and clutter paved way for material minimalism without compromising on details. Dhruv Kapur of DRVV showcased series of monochromatic ensembles, predominantly in charcoal tones. This was followed by Huemn who translated subtle sportswear influenced into their creations. Silhouettes at Nikhil Thampi were pristinely tailored while Nishka Lulla’s summery garments looked delicious in subtle undertones of pinks and powder blue. Vaishali’s Indo-western collection primarily featured weaves in block earthy tones. The mantra is simple – less is more!
