Spice up spring season with colour, bling

Mumbai, March 23 (IANS) Bling and colour seem to be the flavour of the spring season with designers like Pia Pauro, Sanjay Hingu and Komal Sood presenting bright and colourful lines, with a hint of bling, at the Lakme Fashion week (LFW) summer-resort 2013 here Saturday.

The collections were full of life and very much wearable.
Pia Pauro’s line, ‘Grecian Goddess’, was heavily Greece-inspired.
“It is inspired from the blue sea and the white architecture in Greece. Everything has been fused together in my collection. I have been to Greece, and loved it there. I travel a lot and absorb,” Pauro told the media.
Her collection is replete with short dresses with embroidered borders, printed dresses, embellished bikinis and long gowns.
Sanjay Hingu’s collection for men had a lot of simple colours, which moved from lighter to darker shades.
“I have used the colours which we see in our day-to-day lives. Colours play an important part in our lives. My inspiration was these colour blocks. I moved from lighter shades like beige, light grey to brown and maroon,” he said.
The collection included formal coats and jackets, shorts, trousers, and hooded jackets for men in cotton, linen and silk. Hingu calls it a “wearable line”.
Komal Sood presented a chic line, inspired by the desert mirage.
“Like images are created in a mirage, I have used clusters (of fabric) in the fabric. The collection had my signature chic glamour,” she said.
The line showcased sequinned pants, long jackets, gowns with sequins detailing on collars and sleeves and waist coats for men. A silver sequinned high-slit gown was clearly the star of the collection.
