The Spring this time around is loaded with prints and bursts of colours, we were invited to the Wills Lifestyle Store for a brief preview of the Spring Summer 2016 Collection. We did have a chance to, style ourselves in their latest collection too. I did like most of the pieces from the capsule collection designed by Rohit Gandhi & Rahul Khanna, Pankaj & Nidhi, Ritu Kumar for women and Ashish Soni, JJ Vallaya, Rohit Gandhi & Rahul Khanna for men.
While Ashish Soni’s collection for men had simple dobby shirts for work, to Nehru Jackets for formal evening wear, JJ Vallaya’s collection for men had details like piping and french cuffs. Rohit Gandhi & Rahul Khanna’s collection had was mostly engrossed with geometric prints, pintucks and zipper placket details. The Women’s collection by Ritu Kumar had easy silhouettes with asymmetric hemlines, summery prints on Kaftans and maxis in flowy materials like Chiffon and Georgette, that is perfect for a beach vacation. Pankaj & Nidhi’s collection was more structured with box sleeves, graphic & ceramic prints, a few of them did have lantern appliques in them. My favourite was of Rohit Gandhi & Rahul Khanna’s with accents of Ombre’s in colour combinations such as Grey & Blue for evening wear and Beige and Orange Ombre colour palette for day wear.
Since we were asked to style a male and a female model including ourselves, I was caught in a box while picking outfits from their lovely collection. I styled the male model in a White and green hologram polo shirt, the female model was styled in a simple off white dress with black prints and a black stiletto for the summer. While I styled myself in one of Rohit Gandhi & Rahul Khanna’s creations – A Graded Ombre Grey & Blue colour dress with an asymmetric hemline, which was simple yet chic and had silver sequins on the yoke making it perfect for a formal evening occasion. I hope you have your summer wear sorted, if not then head to the Wills Lifestyle Store and do checkout out these capsule collections by Designers.
