As you might know if you follow me on social media, I attended Lakmé Fashion Week Summer Resort 2015 last week. While I didn’t attend that many shows, one that I was really looking forward to was the Sailex.
Sailex showcased his stylish collection of luxurious but affordable resortwear presented by Reliance Footprint at Jabong Stage during Lakmé Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2015. The designer focused on both men and women’s resort wear incorporating a relaxed yet tailored feel to each piece. Inspired by his trademark design and vibe of his previous collections; the silhouettes consisted of flirty skirts, stylish dresses, gowns, shorts, jumpsuits, maxis, jackets and tops.
Shades of blush pink, periwinkle blue, olive green and grey dominated the colour palette. Versatile fabrics like cotton, linen, organza, chiffon and satin were carefully cut and balanced out with elegant embellishments like fish hook detailing, prints and subtle texturing. Intriguingly placed buttons at unexpected places added an element of surprise and were further accentuated with simple, clean cuts.
Shows at fashion week usually include ridiculously high heels but I loved all the shoes featured in the show. The sandals & jellies by Reliance Footprint were all flats & some of the models held them in their hands & walked bare feet down the ramp, I thought it gave off such an easy breezy vibe, made me want to take a walk on the beach right then & there!
The showstopper was Vani Kapoor star of ‘Shuddh Desi Romance’ who walked the runway in a lovely strapless pale blue gown adorned by floral prints. I loved the Sailex Show on the whole, I though the collection was gorgeous while still being easy & wearable.
