Mention the name Anand Kabra and visions of elegant and sensuous collections are conjured up. At Lakmé Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2015, the Anand Kabra collection presented by DHL was a great melding of effortless style and modernism. As the ramp lights came on, the models glided down wearing ensembles that revealed Anand’s distinct creative accents. It was a trendy line of separates that will please the stylish urban woman whose days are packed from dawn to dusk with multiple events.
The predominantly oriental inspired range had clever juxtaposition of prints, textures and embroidery. For Anand, colour was the basis of his collection, which he chose with utmost care. An earthy palette unfolded on the runway where pristine white, pink, sand, chartreuse, forest, stripes and neutral black were the background for the garments. Bringing embellishments in a controlled manner, Anand restricted them to hand painting, handmade lace and some very opulent 3D embroidery.
