Best Of Lakme Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2016
The recently-concluded Winter/Festive edition of Lakme Fashion Week in Mumbai, which was held at the St. Regis hotel between Wednesday, August 24 and Sunday, August 28, was dominated by loose, sack-like clothing. The look has been trendy among indie designers over the last couple of years. Unlike a lot of designerwear, these baggy outfits look like things people without the bodies of models can actually wear. But we’re a little fatigued by all the voluminous tunics and boxy pantsuits. Still, we managed to find a few outfits that would make it to our wardrobe (if we had the cash).
Bring us the man (who is not a model or Ranveer Singh) who can ably pull off these graphic, floral pants.
There’s something nerdy and naughty about Anavila’s linen saris draped with military neatness over funky blouses.
This dreamy number is the stuff of beach weddings in Goa.
We wonder if Ming vases are the inspiration behind this luxurious skirt.
The designer’s collection is called Varak. And his metallic saris, which recall the foil topping on mithai, look good enough to eat.
If the city had a winter, it would be wonderful to romp about in Goyal’s many-textured leather coat.

We’d wear this terrifically sharp combination of a tunic and dhoti pants to work, a party, a wedding, a meeting and pretty much any other occasion.
What we imagine ourselves wearing at the age of 50 to a dressy card game.
What we’d wear to a UV light-illuminated party with ‘2050’ for a theme.

We’d like to order this creamy confection minus the ribbon-like attachment.
Zen on ten for this jewel-bright kimono jacket and silk blue-green dress.
