Swapnil Shinde unveiled his power-packed women’s wear line at Lakmé Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2020
When Swapnil Shinde designs for women, he has always ensured that it is a power-packed look that he offers his buyers. For Lakmé Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2020 Swapnil’s “Not – the Cool Girl” collection was for global women belonging to any religion, region, caste, color, nationality, and sexuality. With such a broad buyer base, Swapnil’s inspirations were derived from the past and present with real and fictional women like Queen Elizabeth, Wonder Woman, Vivian Ward, and Swapnil’s favorite Sunny Leone. Working around a color story comprising yellow, ice blue, nude along with neutrals black and white, Swapnil added a custom-designed print inspired by lightening to highlight the fabrics.
Opening the show was a black/white oversized jacket over an asymmetric dress, the collection then moved to a Cinderella print sack with a latticework back interest. The oversized silhouettes were seen for ballooning power sleeves and extended shoulders. Jumpsuits were sexy with will-power bodices, micro-minis were topped with jackets, bralettes and shorts were teamed with pouchy ballooning covers. Corsets and layered playsuits appeared in quick succession. Pearl and diamond-studded pants, minis, harnesses and sheaths looked stunning, while the white asymmetric gown with textured bodice was an eye-catcher. At times the garments sported striking wordplay on various parts of the outfits.
Swapnil’s collection has always created the complete look, so his custom-made bags, shoes, accessories, and broaches ensured that the buyer got the head to toes image. During this summer, for the buyer who is “Not – the Cool Girl”, Swapnil Shinde offered clothes that will add to her electrifying personality.
