Simply sensuous

Babita Malkani called her collection ‘Talim,’ inspired by the early Kashmiri code for weaving oriental rugs and carpets and rugs. The elegant Indo-western series placed an emphasis on clean lines and graphic geometric patterns, with motifs influenced by Kilim and Kashmiri carpets.

Merging shades of coral, grey, off-white, crimson, blue, ecru and black enhanced the collection, which featured sensually cut gowns, flowing drapes, cropped tops, stylish pants, swimwear and luxuriously layered maxis, with intricate detailing and surface texturing.

Particularly eye-catching at her show at IBFW were the cut-out swimwear dappled with embroidery, togas with interesting Talim prints, and the cowl-draped printed pants. Interesting black-and-white fringed wedges with plastic uppers complemented the collection perfectly.

Making a stunning entry as the showstopper was Divya Khosla Kumar who flaunted a pair of flamboyant culottes and a stylish one-shoulder flared poncho.
