MUMBAI: Savio Jon's collection at Lakme Fashion Week spelt comfort with a capital "C". Devoid of any form of structuring he allowed his garments to hang loose around the body.
Using the most fluid and sheer fabrics like chiffon, georgette, crepe, mul and nearly invisible fish net, that had to be layered intensely to make them opaque in nature, Savio achieved this by teaming up even three or four pieces over one another for a flowing comfortable effect.
Oversized blouses, struggled from under long line blousons, floppily dresses swished around the models; the pinafore silhouette was brought in for blouses, dresses and long lean maxis. The tube or the shift was nearly almost always devoid of any darts or seam structuring and volume played a major role in the collection. The colours were neutral with white, beige, grey, black, brown and pale yellow used over each other or solo, made a muted fashion statement.
Deep scooped armholes, low front and back necklines with careless cowls, some raw edges and overlooking as a detailing; gave a quirky slightly humorous touch to the garments.
For evening glamour, Savio Jon retained the tubular silhouettes but added some shimmer to the otherwise simple garments.
Known for his simplicity in creations which are at the same time outstanding in value and attraction, Savio Jon's Spring/Summer 2007 line was a serene blend of subtle designing touches, with large doses of comfort fashion.
