A collection with touches of royalty is always coveted by stylish women. Arpita Mehta’s “The Royal Summer Affair” at Lakmé Fashion Week Summer/Report 2015 was a scintillating presentation of glamor and style. It is an ethereal collection, where ethnic silhouettes were highlighted by the sensuous lines of cream and nude, with splashes of bright pop tones like royal pink, indigo, lime green and peachy coral.
The symphony in nude net was a vision of beauty with the first entry of a lehenga with sequined peplum blouse. What followed were more stunners in the same hue with tulle being the cynosure of the collection. A textured saree was teamed with the tiniest of bikini tops; but ponchos with shorts had embroidered edges.
A will-power net gown was a visual dream and the net kurta with shararas was outstanding. The off-shoulder embroidered mini with drop sleeves, the cape and frocks with net dhotis were interesting accompaniments. With layered sheer fabrics adding to the mood of the collection, Arpita ensured that the appliqued mirror-work flowers as well as the innovative geometric georgettes and gota designs added to the regal appearance of the creations. To complete a further touch of elegance to her collection, Arpita launched her limited edition line of handmade embroidered shoes called “Bedazzle”.
The showstopper was the gorgeous statuesque Esha Gupta who looked breathtaking in a layered flesh colored embroidered gown with a seductive thigh high slit. Formal wear never looked more enticing and inviting than Arpita Mehta’s “The Royal Summer Affair” collection. Check out the pictures below and let us know what you think in the comment section.
