Decoding the Runway: Top 2 Picks from Lakme Fashion Week Day 2

Was a slow day for fashion yesterday, with some very high highs and some insipid lows. The pinacle was obviously Nupur Kanoi’s collection, which I reviewed last night. In the same time slot at Kanoi, Nishka Lulla and Nikhil Thampi also brought on their breezy summer collections.

Nishka is stepping into her own with collections that represent a small section of our generation that truly love no frill dressing. The collection was understated, casual and made for the sweltering Indian summer. Minimalist and earthy, these looks can be dressed up with some interesting jewellery to make them ultra urban.

Thampi loves to show off a woman’s body in the most sensual way possible, his draped off shoulder dresses and backless garments are sought after by many young fashionistas. Yet it was this one pant suit, smart and sultry with it’s open back, that really stood out. The designer does have an eye for more structured outfits, and that’s where his real personality shines.
