Designers Rixi Bhatia and Jayesh Sachdev from Quirk Box took the audience on the ride of a lifetime with their collection “Wanderlust” at Lakmé Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2015.
Originally an art print collection, inspired by the postcards of the world, the dynamic duo turned it into a clothing line that had the audience wanting more. They stayed true to the quirkiness and conceptualized something different from the color blocking and loud hues from the previous season. Galvanized by the world undiscovered, the compilation was based on the adventure of unseen mountains, seas, people and different cultures and unheard music.
The contemporary art with an overlay of romanticism gave allurement to the urban-chic silhouettes that featured statement prints and intricate detailing. The color story displayed a transition from subtle pastels to brightly popped colors through the course of the show.
Mint scarves, bra-lets, pleated jackets, fishtail skirts and bell sleeved tops were the highlights of the compilation in tones like mint, white and colorful prints. A sleeveless lapelled jacket with a cropped top and midi skirt, bell sleeved multicolored pleated calf length skirt and the printed long flowing cape, top, and shorts trio had a marked summer feel.
Added to the elegant trousseau, were the high-in-function accessories, which contributed to the modern aesthetics, something of grave importance to the urban traveler.
“Wanderlust” by Quirk Box founders Rixi Bhatia and Jayesh Sachdev was free-spirited and left fashion conscious individuals lusting after it.
