Sukriti and Aakriti Grover’s ‘Boheme Bride’ collection at IBFW had a relaxed laidback feel for the unconventional bride who is a wanderer at heart. There was that new-age ambience about ensembles primarily crafted in organic cotton, woven from soya bean and latte fibre. The colours were conventional romantic pink and duck egg blue. Classic festive wear had gorgeous gotta-patti work, while ombré dyes gave a rustic feel to the garments.
Giving the desi wear a contemporary touch, the designer duo went for voluminous silhouettes and gauzy details. While blouses were strappy with plunging necklines, there was a hint of conservative designing. Lehengas, ghararas, shararas and saris were designed with added flare and layers, floor-length creations were often teamed with denim to maintain the theme and inspiration of fun-filled bohemia. An interesting and intriguing accessory was the Mohawk-like comb in the centre of the hair parting that added a further Bohemian touch to the collection.
The showstopper was Aditi Rao Hydari who looked divine in a cream lehenga with gold foil floral print, bikini top, accessorised by a maang teeka, haath phool and finger shield.
