The Monaco Diaries – that’s what Narendra Kumar called his collection presented by Monaco Tourism at Lakmé Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2015 at Palladium Hotel. What you witnessed was a contemporary destination wedding line encompassing resort, sangeet, cocktail and wedding appropriate ensembles. The glamour of style icons like Audrey Hepburn and Grace Kelly along with retro Hollywood touches appeared in the ultra chic line.
Floral femininity dominated the elaborate cocktail gowns, tailored day-dresses and structured jackets. The colours moved from coral and then onto pastels like lavender and mint and darker shades like purple, midnight blue and burgundy. The fusion creations were regal with light and minimal accents on cutwork, lace, crystal, hand/machine resham/cord work and appliqués to present an elegant line.
The designer favoured the peplum jackets or blouses teamed with pants or skirts. Cutwork played a major role on the blouses, trouser hems, gowns and dresses. Giving the ethnic wear a western influence, the long feminine kurtas with ruffles floated down the ramp on elegant models. Draped and rouched evening gowns were the final offering either as willpower slinky numbers or long-sleeved ones with embroidered bodices.
The men’s wear reflected the feel of the Monaco mood as Narendra visualised cool comfortable suits, jacquard jackets and bundgalas in shades of beige, light orange, mint and deeper dark masculine tones. Constructed close to the body, the jackets sported two-button closures teamed with skinny ankle-length trousers.
And one more thing: the music set up the merry Monaco mood.
