Anamika Khanna is one of our favourite Indian designers. She creates works of art, with masterful draping and design.
Instead of a runway show in Delhi, Anamika Khanna brought India Couture Week to her hometown in Kolkata, where her new collection, “Luxury 2014” (okay, that’s not a very original name) was presented as an installation at her boutique.
Inspired by vintage and globalized fashion, the installation was a blend of Anamika’s love for everything organic and vintage. “I have always been a lover of vintage pieces, which I have been collecting for many years now,” Anamika said from Kolkata. “They emit a distinctive glamour which leaves you spellbound, in terms of the craft techniques used.”
The fabrics range from silk organza to luxurious muslins, the techniques include everything from English floral patterns to African tribal forms, which are all brought together seamlessly. We’re craving a sheer, floral embroidered cape from this collection.
Trends: Capes, English floral prints, laces, scalloped edges, and embroidered appliques.
Styling: Invest in an embroidered vest, lace cape or kimono, or embroidered jacket to pair over dresses, lehengas, saris, and churidar suits.
