Priyadarshini Rao @Lakme Fashion Week
Her new label 'Mineral' channeled light, summery chic all the way
Priyadarshini Rao 'Mineral' collection score full marks for versatility - constructed from natural fabrics in western silhouettes, we loved the fresh colour chart of white, indigo, oyster pink, beige and charcoal. Plus the doses of lime sorbet, candy and turquoise added to the fun.
With cool blouses, linen lounge pants, over shirts dresses, shorts, pinafores and innovative shirts, and fabrics ranging from muls, poplins, cambric, jersey and chiffon to georgette and linen, this was nicely varied. The splashes of floral and geometric prints, and the fab summer shoes by Trsmode, as well as the belts, funky jewellery and multicoloured woven bags added to the complete look.
What stood out for us were the printed pinafores, white blouses with a variety of lace detailing, peasant dresses with sheer insets, lots of handkerchief hemlines for skirts and dresses, minis with piping and pleating details, bubble overalls, jersey tops with dolman sleeves, and the bias cut long printed and coloured maxis. A perfectly relaxed wardrobe that's casual with the option to go formal.
