Sailex stunned all with his sensual and straight, but stylish collection presented by Reliance Footwear at Jabong Stage during Lakmé Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2015. The very interesting sub-range of affordable resort wear created a stir among the audience. The designer focused on both men and women’s resort wear incorporating a relaxed yet tailored feel to each piece.
Inspired by his trademark design and vibe of his previous collections; the silhouettes consisted of flirty skirts, stylish dresses, gowns, shorts, jumpsuits, maxis, jackets and tops. Shades of blush pink, periwinkle blue, olive green and gorgeous grey dominated the color palette and worked to make this range both classy and colorful; while also giving it a versatile edge. The designer also translated his distinct embroidery into a series of prints both geometrical and floral in nature that will appeal to the global buyer.
Versatile fabrics like cotton, linen, organza, chiffon and satin were carefully cut and balanced out with elegant embellishments like fish hook detailing, prints and subtle texturing. Intriguingly placed buttons at unexpected places added an element of surprise and were further accentuated with simple, clean cuts.
High waist bikini bottom shorts paired with low cut tops having floral prints and see through jackets for women were a trademark of the collection; while the men sported casual shorts paired with formal shirts and open coats in a mix of geometry-meets-nature prints.
Hook eye embellishments from his Spring/Summer 2014 collection along with the cherry blossom print from his Autumn/Winter 2013-14 line, made a surprise appearance on the runway in interesting new avatars. Perfect for both evening and day wear, the designer crafted each piece with precision and care with an eye for detail and flair for artistic drama.
The showstopper was Vani Kapoor star of ‘Shuddh Desi Romance‘ who walked the runway in an ethereal strapless pale blue gown adorned by floral prints. Balanced, contemporary and gritty, Sailex’s collection presented by Reliance Footprint will have any fashion God or Goddess feeling ready to take on the world and any runway!
