The Matador’s Mistress
No one documents ‘drama’ on the runway as elegantly as designers Shantanu and Nikhil. Their spin of ‘couture ball gowns’ in the collection ‘The Matador’s Mistress’, that washed the LYF WF ramp with swirling hemlines had it all – from Cinderella’s choice of alluring plum red and arresting reds, to the seductive cuts for the evil queen wrapped in sensational shades of green and black.
Garments teamed with Matador jackets added a hint of heroism to the gowns for women of this generation. Each and every design exuberated style, with the right amount of seductiveness and oodles of self confidence.
Think seductive, Think sleek Goddess, and the name Malaika Arora Khan finds a way to slip out of every mouth without second choice. Doing complete justice to Shantanu, Nikhil’s latest collection, Malaika dazzled the ramp in a cut out at the waist, long sleeved, black gown.
The Mutiny 1919
On a note of masculinity, bearded men were seen strutting down the ramp in turbans, double breasted Jodhpuri jackets, floppy pants, Nehru Jackets with an evident military touch.
Inspired by the tales of the British Army of 1919, S&N created a rebellion of fashion on stage in bold shades of ecru, navy, maroon, grey and black.
