Class and elegance being in his genes, designer Lalit Sengar, is all set to astound the Indian fashion industry with his uber chic and eccentric designs with a good dose of Indian textile at Lakme Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2014 with an eclectic collection christened sylvan swain.
The collection draws inspiration from the art nouveau era. The ornamental style of architecture distinguishing each characteristic of Art Nouveau is undulating in this asymmetrical line. Taking cue from the detailed architecture, mega structures, motifs, art installations, home decor, and other delicate and sinuous natural objects keeping the masculinity of forms intact; the line is elegantly and gracefully infused with a powerfully rhythmic and whip like force. In the graphic arts the line subordinates all other pictorial elements – form, texture, space, and color – to its own decorative effect.
The collection is a mystique of Art nouveau era based on Indian textile and sensibilities, keeping the summer trends and details in mind and cutting edge designs and impeccable tailoring to deliver stylish & elegant and comfortable prêt line for men and women. Every single detail is well crafted and carefully observed till finishing. The collection has a very old world charm of its own.
Keenly observing its characteristics Lalit has evoked the grace and beauty of art. Customizing block prints along with hand embroideries and screen prints blended with Indian textiles like cotton, chanderi cotton, and linen, with fine craftsmanship and finishing, the collection will be a distinctive compilation of spectacular flowy yet structured ensembles. A palette of beige, pastels, off white, grey, white transfused this into a glamorous and elegant line.
Focus is kept to the multiform layering and draping in forms of separates which can be teamed up with absolutely anything to make you look quintessential.
With noticeable international aesthetics and style, designer Lalit Sengar says, “I am glad to be a part of LFW, This Summer Resort 2014; my line is very detailed yet understated keeping the spirit of ‘gentlemen dressing’ alive. Approaches towards fusion wear keeping the comfort level high! The line is for someone who wants to experiment beyond usual silhouettes of his everyday clothing (weather its shirt or jacket) and yet remain trendy. Along with men’s wear there are few women’s wear look
This signature collection is synonymous with the label’s principles of comfort and class with just the right touches of style and showmanship.
