Mumbai, 3rd February’ 18: Saaksha and Kinni presented their collection ‘Forza’ on day 4 of Lakmé Fashion Week – Summer Resort 2018. Drawing inspiration and digging deeper into the rich cultural heritage of Gujarat, the designers brought alive the spirit of Gujarat in the form the archetypical bandhani and batik intermingling with the dark florals; long billowy skirts paired with stylish crop tops, flowy capes, loose pants and breezy maxi dresses in silks and satins presented the perfect concoction of femininity and fierceness.
Fashioned with elements that maintains a fine balance between opposing forces, Forza carried the traditional mirror work in the embroideries, along with their signature metal and thread work against darker embroideries. The contrast-without-conflict ran in their colour palettes as well—lilacs, reds, purples and white juxtaposed against blacks, maroons and mustards. The models maintained nearly nude sun-kissed skin with an au-naturel glow.
Speaking about the collection Saaksha and Kinni commented, “We are very excited to present ‘Forza’ that took us back to the endless summers spent in Gujarat – and through our breezy silhouettes and relaxed fits, it’s our attempt to reclaim that feeling of anything-is-possible that we first felt on Gujarat’s soil. With Forza, we’re paying our respects to the past, discovering the present, and creating for the future”.
