‘GUAPA’ (Reby Jindal)

The coastal lagoons and their serene blue waters of the Bay of Bengal proved to be a creative drive for the label. The pristine French cottages encircled with the glorious bougainvillea plants have always added to the colour story for designers.
The meandering colourful streets of the French quarter to draw more stylish visions for the ensembles. With resort wear as its foundation, the collection moved from easy breezy silhouettes to relaxed comfort wear that was dreamt up in sustainable, breathable fabrics. For beach wear glamour there were vibrant floral prints merged with French checks, quaintly inspired by the cacti of Pondicherry.
Men’s wear followed the theme of the show with colourful printed shirts, shorts, beach robes, tunics and lungis.
At Lakmé Fashion Week in partnership with FDCI, Limerick presents “Artopia” drew its creative ideation from the glorious history of India’s artistic heritage.
This inspiration was translated delicately in the form of motifs, intricate detailing, and the finest 3D embroidery. When inspirations are beautiful paintings from the legendary seventh to ninth centuries of Rajasthan, the treatment had to be re-imagined and re-invented to meet the sartorial demands of contemporary buyers.
This fashionable journey was executed with great pizazz by paying careful attention to all aspects that go into a best-selling collection. Limerick selected luxuriously fluid organza and silk crepe, which were embellished with fine detailed artwork. Dipping the colour brush into hues that matched the grandeur of the collection, the brand opted for varying shades of blush pink, powder blue, brown and beige.
Silhouettes were easy on the eyes and body for comfortable summer wear comprising co-ord sets and some luxurious saris.
