I'm starting with Joy Mitra's collection, since he's a newbie to my blog and this is the first time I'll be reviewing any of his work. It certainly seems that he is a regular at the show, and his past collections have met with quite a bit of accolade. I am hoping that this translates into commercial success with celebrity buyers and boutique clients, because his work looks incredibly wearable.
I have been shopping around or my own clothes lately and I'm getting really tired of overdone pieces with details that seem to be randomly thrown on to make an outfit that is as blingy as possible without any attention to components like fit and style or even color, at times. So that probably explains my attraction to the fresh, high-contrast colour scheme and the sparsely embroidered pieces. Some of the tops seems to be a bit badly cut and so appear ill-fitting, but I like the balance between heavy and light fabrics and the wide, flowy skirts. I could do without the tulle sticking out from the bottom of the skirts though, which in more ornate pieces can be a charming little touch of whimsy, but here, on simpler cuts, looks like the dress is just a tad bit too short. The gold lace detailing on a lot of the pieces is totally nineties throwback, and is a great retro detail.
|jumpsuit love, not sure I would have put it with these shoes though. I see something strappier.|
|Love the resham embroidery on this choli.|
|A little longer on the skirt and this would be perfect.|
|Don't like the fit of this top. I don't know, maybe I have a thing against sleeveless and desiwear.|
|Actually, this top combined with a lengha skirt would be more on-trend.|
|okay, definitely my FAVE piece from this collection, at least the top is.|
|The skirt, GORGE. the top? Not so crazy about, maybe I need to see it from a different angle|
