Lakme Fashion Week diaries #2 : Nupur Kanoi and Payal Khandwala

So lovelies, day 2 of fashion week was such a pleasant surprise. Although the designers that showed weren't a household name, their collections definitely spoke volumes about their refreshing take on winter fashion and their raw talent.

Nupur Kanoi

Nupur Kanoi's collection revolved around deep hues of red, brown and purple most of which had a relaxed fall to them. Stripes, which is 2013's hottest trend was present as well but in an reformed avatar with patterns and inverted stripes. I liked the way she kept the footwear to the bare minimal while the focus remained on her kimono sleeves, short layers and vests. Most of the clothing items grazed the ankle with flowing silhouette and a number of them had exposed zippers.

Payal Khandwala

Payal Khandwala's collection was the highlight of my day! While the general perspective of fall fashion is darker hues, Payal Khandwala took a different path which, I think, was a great decision. The fabric had an innate sheen to it and all the clothing was in brilliant jewel tones. Belts and a wristful of bangles were the accessories of choice while the mojris added the Indian element. The Mandarin collars she used  added definition to the otherwise flowing silhouettes and asymmetrical hems
