SUNNY SIDE UP
United Colors of Benetton evokes the spirit of summer with chic, contemporary and playful silhouettes. The collection is marked by a warm colour palette, from shades of bordeaux reds and oxide yellows, to tonal inky blues and pops of water-colour blues of the sea. Summer white and pastels set the mood for mid-season occasion wear; while buttercup yellow, tropical blue and neon shades dominate high summer. The womenswear collection includes playful stripes ranging from classic nautical to variegated stripes, and floral, flowy summer dresses. Mix and match the contemporary prints; polka, clear linear florals, water-coloured blooms, colour blocking with quirky tees and distressed denims; all bathed in summer colours with pops of red and fresh yellow. The menswear line embraces classic and contemporary prints with chequered shirts, stripes or bold floral shorts to the iconic colour block polos and the spiffy military green printed shorts. Additional designs include textured fabrics in tie and dye, and denims with pocket detailing.
Infuse some vibrancy and fun into your wardrobe with Global Desi’s Summer 2018 collection. Titled ‘Puppets & Camels’ – this collection seeks to transcribe the cultural and colourful experience of Rajasthan into bohemian styles. The vibrant hues combined with peculiar motifs are reminiscent of Rajasthan, making their way into the design language with the collection’s hashtag #PuppetsNCamels. The collection embraces both familiarity and modernity of our Indian folkloric roots, with elements synonymous of Rajasthan, mainly Puppets and Camels. The prints are interpreted to create a new season-signature in a colour palette of sunset yellows, bright reds, orange, deep blues, whites along with soft pastels. The range includes dresses, crop tops, rompers, tunics, jackets, cover-ups and more in soft cotton. Cut the puppet strings and let loose; set yourself free and experience the new summer vibe with the coolest humpback friends.
‘The Mythical Moors’ by Prarena Grover is a collection inspired by the wild, whimsical and dramatic legends of the old forest. The clothes are made with the intricacy of Indian embroidery techniques, and out of the box cuts and drapes, creating exciting outfits that reflect the drama of fairytales and legends, while looking chic and classy. The designs incorporate trees and various elements found in the forest by embellishing the different motifs. The colour palette of the collection is inspired by wild flowers and greenery, leading to a range of brightly-coloured garments. The collection shows the diverse sides of a forest: both calm and chaotic.
