New Delhi: It was an eclectic mix of the late 70’s and early 80’s disco era that marked ace designer Siddhartha Tytler’s collection at the ongoing fashion extravaganza’s Spring/Summer collection at WIFW 2011. Calling it White Horse, Siddhartha’s creation drew inspiration from the emblematic lunacy of Studio 54 meeting the angelic Bianca Jagger who came riding on a white horse and marked a moment in the history of fashion, music, art and love.
Ample bold and chunky jewellery upped the glam quotient while extensive body cocooning leggy silhouettes kept the sexiness of the era alive. The jewellery sponsored by St. Erasmus was fashionably experimental yet very wearable.
The glitter and shine was lent with the use of sequin sheathing and metallic interplay. There was a new form of surface treatment that the designer introduced in the collection, known as negative sheeting.
There was an interesting array of club/party wear ranging from, Swarovski crystal encrusted jumpsuits and mini dresses, to corseted dresses with cascades, from tie-up jackets with large shoulder pads to embroidered boy shorts, from leggy shifts to dressy halter tops.
The puffy crinoline skirt at the end was a total eye-candy that looked completely fun and peppy. Disco lights and vivacious 80’s dance music, compelled the viewers to tap some feet and have a spirited party moment.
The designer on the whole managed to make a grandiose statement dedicating his collection to the madness and excitement of the disco period.
