Inspired by the city of Jaipur and its sculpted architecture, Sahil Kochhar presented a very structured and edgy collection with surreal textures and cuts. Enveloped in bold pastels of midnight blue, deep pink, jet black, olive and subtle beige; handmade fabrics were juxtaposed with delicate embroidery and floral patchwork. Kimono-inspired silhouettes could be seen on belted jackets and floor-sweeping anarkalis. Banded skirts contained intricate crotchet work, as uni-linear and geometric tessellations could be seen on fitted gowns and slouchy ponchos. Unstructured hemlines and heavy lace embroidery could be seen on each and every garment, as models were delicately walking in built-up robes and corseted skirts. Dresses were going into delicate plunges, as English patent clogs were the perfect footwear trend on the fashion runway. Zigzag patterns were imprinted onto A-line gowns that were paired with netted shrugs as laser-cut geometric patterns were adorned onto mermaid skirts and inverted triangular structures.
