Sneak Preview : “The Artistic Sojourn” by Babita Malkani: Lakme Fashion Week S/R’16

Titled the "The Artistic Sojourn", mystical divinity plays muse to this collection. In the unique genre of Past Modern, Babita tries to break the sartorial stereotypes and juxtaposes it with modern iconography.

Utilitarian fashion pieces find centre stage with breathable fabrics like georgette, chiffon, organza, satin and net, resulting in a collection that resonates with sophisticated femininity. Cut-out lace is interspersed with immaculately crafted palazzo pants, skirts, and military pruned tops detailed with draped sarees, taut pants and cloque dresses. 

Shades of peach, lilac, echo, serenity blue and hints of café au lait form the lucid colour wheel highlighting the brands affinity with spiritual renditions and it’s kinship to soul stirring influences. Appliqués and fervent mosaic cuts revisit the humble “Tree of Life” metaphor in design and aesthetic, enhancing the illusionary fantasy of the collection. The identity is being reshaped to reflect the zeitgeist as fashion and spirituality collide.
