Couturier to the stars Manish Malhotra opened Lakme Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2016 with ‘Elements’ – his haute couture collection presented by LYF Smartphones at Mehboob Studio.
Comprising over 70 ensembles for a beautiful summer wedding, ‘Elements’ blossomed on the runway, inspired by nature’s four glories – Earth, Water, Wind and Flame. This season, Manish charmed the audiences with unexpected yet glamorous variations to traditional yet modern Indian couture. Tailored ponchos and overlapped trousers; cocktail dresses with graceful sari drapes, off-shoulder jumpsuits with Victorian trails, all make for playful additions to a bridal wardrobe.
Cascading layers of organza, tussar and crepe in dreamy hues of baby pink, powder blue, mint green and sunset orange, floral motifs on asymmetrical cuts and sharp tailoring added an edge to the collection, enhanced by Manish’s handpicked uncuts, rubies, emerald and diamond accessories from Anmol Jewellers along with handcrafted belts and beaded fringe bags.
‘Elements’ also presented a capsule collection for the modern groom. Sharp jackets and kurtas, tailored pants and churidars in shades of blue and ivory were showcased for the millennial gentleman.
And then there was lovely lady Jacqueline Fernandez in a pastel pink gown and sheer cape and the dapper Arjun Kapoor in a midnight blue kurta and pants who closed the super show.
