Fash­ion is a funny thing. Trends come and go, and they are of­ten at log­ger­heads with each other. While clash­ing, mis­matched prints have been a hit both on and off the run­way, all-sim­i­lar, match­ing prints are what we are lust­ing af­ter now. Co-ords or co-or­di­nated sep­a­rates in clas­sic pat­terns or prints are not only celeb favourites, but also a fan­tas­tic way to spruce up your safe seper­ates game.

THE POWER OF PRINTS

If you thought you can only pull-off prints in the ca­sual realm, think again. Ex­perts be­lieve that prints have an in­nate, red-car­pet per­fect power, and co-ords are one way to bend the rules. “Prints in the in­ter­na­tional arena have al­ways had the power to add an edge. The In­dian mar­ket on the other hand is still pre-ma­ture and con­sid­ers prints to be very ca­sual and not dressy, be­cause our cul­ture is used to see­ing prints all around, on a daily ba­sis. Maybe in the times to come the sen­si­bil­ity of our con­sumer will change and prints will be con­sid­ered more for­mal,” says de­signer Manav Gang­wani. De­signer Nikhil Mehra also speaks about this print power play, he says, “Now, the print is big­ger than the sil­hou­ette and twin sets or co­or­di­nates are clearly mak­ing a state­ment. If you no­tice, as artists and public fig­ures, peo­ple are far more ex­pres­sive in their clothes rather than their lan­guage. The prints here speak for them­selves.”

TWIN SETS GO VI­RAL

To cre­ate a print match, you need to in­fuse sar­to­rial con­fi­dence. De­signer Nida Mah­mood, who also went the co-ords way when it came to her col­lec­tion last year, says, “Sep­a­rates with co-or­di­nated prints for the top and bot­tom has been a hot trend for the past two sea­sons. It’s a re­fresh­ing change from the usual diet of con­trast­ing sep­a­rates which we have done for don­keys years.”
