LFW: Amalraj Sengupta presents hand stitched bespoke line
Mumbai, Mar 23 : Launching his hand stitched bespoke line called "Tailor" with a collection called "The Tribe" at Lakme Fashion Week (LFW) Summer/Resort 2013 on Friday, Amalraj Sengupta offered a great fashion collection to stylish men and women.
With customised woven, hand spun and hand dyed yarns as the basis of the garments, the fabric story revealed a superb degree of high fashion.
Inspired by the Mauri tribes of New Zealand, Amalraj brought to the ramp; effects of snake skins and tattoos of the warrior tribes. Using blends of khadi linen, silk, khadi and cotton, Amalraj allowed the colours to move from red to yellow, grey, mid blue and then onto off-white and finally jet black. Simple yet androgynous at times in appearance, the garments had a definite fashion direction for the coming season.
Opening the show with a yellow striped/plain bundi and kurta, Amalraj brought in a sheer organza kurta with a pleated yoke and grey striped waistcoat for men's wear.
The sleeveless black jacket, a well tailored maroon striped coat and kurta shirt with double breasted bundi were interesting additions for the masculine wardrobe.
Women's wear too had some edgy cuts, as grey asymmetric peplum jacket/pants, a yellow drop waist maxi, hipster linen pants and kurta gave fusion looks.
The horizontal striped elephant pants with tunic, the maxi pencil skirt, the elegant maroon striped asymmetric coat and the tuxedo style shirt in black organza had a delicate androgynous appeal.
Amalraj Sengupta's bespoke "Tailor" collection "The Tribe" offered stylish options to both sexes with a variety of cuts, construction and colours.
