ARMAAN RANDHAWA MADE A POWERFUL FASHION IMPACT WITH HIS LABEL ‘EKAM’ AT LAKMÉ FASHION WEEK WINTER/FESTIVE 2016
Armaan Randhawa’s label ‘EKAM’ made strong fashion statements for women and men with Art Power as the inspiration that focused on Women Empowerment at Lakmé Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2016. Turning to Frida Kahlo’s face and tiger motifs, Armaan added the feminine delicate Chinese flowers like Gerberas, Gaugamela, orchids and the national China Plum blossom.
The opening comfy outfit was a red sweater and pants with the slogan ‘Make Art Not War’ and soon it was time for a long white shirt, the black pleated maxi skirt with fluid coat, followed by a blouson and skirt. The brown coat-dress, black cape over a dress and long-sleeve jersey creation with a layered look was very trendy and on mark. Jumpsuits appeared for Him and Her and the other men’s wear look was a pleated pant with a basic jacket.
The final long embroidered skirt with a see-through biker jacket and blouse followed the theme of the inspiration.
The colours of the season were present with ivory, navy, blue, wine and geranium as the predominant hues. Armaan kept the silhouettes to the minimum but played with detailing and construction. For the sporty chic look he added cording, piping, embroidery and his favourite hand cut appliqués.
To match this very powerful but organic line, the fabrics started with Chanderi, cotton and then moved to mesh nets and Scuba.
When it comes to making a strong sporty fashion statement, men and women should look no further than Armaan Randhawa’s EKAM label for the coming season and savour the beauty of the Chinese Garden inspirations through their clothes.
