The SVA label by Sonam and Paras Modi has always been at the forefront of fashion. When it comes to an amalgamation of prints and colours, the designers have offered a mind-boggling range season after season. To the pulsating beat of the live band, the designers unveiled their Lakmé Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2020 “Galeecha” collection which was a refreshing line that brought in diverse visions of their design philosophy.
It was a collection that was all things SVA, inspired by the archives of their previous collections. While the fabric choice had staples like silk, it was the addition of denim this season that took the ensembles many notches up the fashion ladder.
The contemporary resort wear looks merged abstract textures with geometric prints and fluid florals. Some more prints from ancient Persian carpets were enhanced with bold strips to add a more engaging, complex design story.
The silhouettes moved really well for the coming season as the ever-popular summer staples like kaftans, maxis and skater dresses were balanced with some stylised jackets. The collection offered great stylish looks with the geometric print jacket, slinky mini tunics coordinated with printed over shirts, while capes in rich hues of navy covered sexy slim slit skirts. Bold multi-coloured railroad stripes were ideal for cutaway armhole maxis.
The horizontal striped sari with a sleeved pallav, angular draped midi, asymmetric skirt with a lean sherwani and the cape over lehenga and choli brought variety to the collection. An exciting drape over bell-bottoms and choli, an angular one-shoulder poncho with pants, the striped looped skirt, choli and cape trio, as well as the layered flowing lehenga with a one-shoulder choli were glamorous. Men’s wear was practical but with a lot of colour and prints. Jodhpuri suit with embroidery, a kurta, Bundi, trousers and stole quartet, waistcoats, and an assortment of Bundies and kurtas gave the male dresser ample choices.
Looking very perky and pretty was the latest Bollywood actor Alaya F who looked like a bohemian princess in a graphic, multicoloured, long-sleeved blouse with intense detailing.
For the perfect holiday wardrobe that is versatile and timeless, the “Galeecha” collection from SVA by Sonam and Paras Modi will make summer travel a sartorial delight.
