‘Antar-Agni’ the label by Ujjawal Dubey offered innovations for his men’s and women’s wear collection called “Half-Light” at Lakmé Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2015’s Indian Handloom’s and Textile Day! Ujjawal aimed to create a fashionable balance between contrasts, played with dark and light grey as well as pastel shades of blue and then sprang a surprise with metallic color details. Keeping the silhouettes to relaxed fits, which were oversized and layered, Ujjawal’s fabric options were restricted to handwoven khadi, linen net, linen satin blends, cotton linen and added faux leather and organza for accents.
Detailing gave the men’s wear a New Age feel as wide salwars, one- button collarless jackets, long knee length Sherwani, and cross-over kurta revealed some comfy options. Angular and asymmetric hemlines accentuated the kurta; while the bundgala jacket with an uneven midi kurta was an unconventional semi-formal offering. The five women’s wear looks started with a relaxed panelled anarkali with an organza inset at the sides, moved to a cross-over top worn with slashed and layered pants, a cowl draped toga top and a very innovative pant/skirt. The final kurta with a draped attached dupatta was an amazing two-in-one style.
When men and women want subtle drama or a hint of raw glamour in their wardrobe then they should head for Ujjawal Dubey’s “Half-Light” collection created for his ‘Antar-Agni’ label! We’re loving it!
