New Delhi: Known for their extravagance, designer-duo Rohit Gandhi and Rahul Khanna chose to go subtle and simple this time for their Spring?Summer collection at Wills India Fashion Week.
Titled `Quiet Vanity`, the new line comprised of nude colours and soft silhouettes with a modern twist.
"We are known for using blacks and metallics in our clothes. But this time we thought we would go quiet. That is why we have used a lot of sheer and gloss in the clothes," Rohit told reporters after the show.
"We wanted to keep it beautiful yet sensual. We did not want to scream out and be loud in this collection. These clothes are for women who are subtle yet stylish," Rahul added.
The fabrics used were tulle, fine georgette, sheer organza, which helped in keeping the outfits soft. The use of thumb prints gave the designs a contemporary feel.
A blend of grey and nude, and the use of blue with highlights of copper and salmon elevated the collection.
Designer Namrata Joshipura also showcased her Spring-Summer line -- `The Wanderer` -- which was inspired by mountains, glaciers and lakes.
With specific reference to the landscapes, prints and embroideries have been developed from the textures of glaciers, clouds, snow, frozen lakes, cliffs and icicles.
The silhouettes were easy, sporty and contemporary.
Jumpsuits, skirts, spring jackets and cocktail dresses were central to the collection.
The colour palettes comprised of ice blue, snowy white, asphalt grey, dust and sunset gold with hints of twilight orange.
