It’s

Harper's Bazaar (India) - - SARI SPLENDOUR - By Ak­shita Sekhri

all about ap­pliqué this sea­son. For those who like to leave a last­ing im­pres­sion, em­bel­lish­ments are the go-to de­tail, whether on your sep­a­rates or ex­tras. While de­sign­ers Aquilano. Ri­mondi played with mother-of-pearl and cre­ated crafty yet wear­able pieces, Marni on the other hand charmed us with their sor­bet-coloured dresses that flaunt flo­ral mo­tifs. Prada went sporty with be­daz­zled var­sity jack­ets and airy coats, but it was Domenico Dolce and Ste­fano Gab­bana whose lust-wor­thy, pin-up-in­spired multi-hued sparklers took the cake. Closer home, San­chita ex­per­i­mented with feathers—both printed and ap­pliquéd—for her Spring 2012 line, while de­sign­ers Ro­hit Gandhi and Rahul Khanna went all out with sheeted se­quin de­tails on sheer jack­ets and tiny play­suits. For the min­i­mal­ist, stand-out ex­tras should do the trick—our pick: a Lan­vin neck­piece or a Fendi beaded clutch. Whether it be bright citrine, burnt or­anges, or deep navys, one thing is for sure—strips, beads, se­quins, and pearls bling the sea­son for­ward.
