Anamika Khanna X Amrapali - ICW2016

Sunday 24 July 2016 / , , ,

Softer Ivories have their own timeless charm , right  ?  Anamika Khanna's offsite show  collection at the Leela Palace, Delhi made me fall in love with lighter tones as never before.
Oyster pink, jade, powder blue and rose, mustard  never looked so charming until Anamika brought them in different flavours of  cuts and silhouettes that left me speechless.
The garments had her signature trails, cape with trails rather a great mix of modern without having to sacrifice on tradition. Long coats with petal detailing were paired with reinvented shararas , sarees re-emerged, and the oversized coats with popping 3D embroidery popped my eyeballs.
The fuller skirts with higher waistlines crossed the thin line between a cocktail dress and a lehenga skirt.

The 3D petals in organza and threadwork inspired by Calico were added to bring out more femininity to the garments . Tiny , difficult to go through the needle pearls ( as Anamika says ) were placed around the garments, and the traditional Kalamkari and zardozi work appealed classic and timeless.
History was repeating itself after going through a great process of what we may call as excellent craftsmanship.
The charismatic charm of Sonam Kapoor in Anamika Khanna was the highlight as she made a guest appearance.
There couldn't have been a better collaboration than Anamika Khanna X Amrapali. Saw some really divine cocktail jewellery in stunning shapes,  worn by the models which added a luxury flair to the whole collection.
