MUMBAI: With their label "Quirk Box", fashion designers Rixi Bhathia and Jayesh Sachdev revealed a very colourful, pop, kitschy, loud, spunky collection at Lakme Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2013. Giving prints a major importance in their line, the designer duo created a formal look with a dash of structured fluidity. Keeping the silhouettes basic, the pair allowed the digital prints and embroidery along with textures and colour blocking to tell a fun filled fashionable story.
Crepe, georgette, cotton canvas and poplin formed the basis of the garments. Indian animal prints and Japanese Manga graphics added to the energy and style of the apparel that moved from pop culture to modern forms. Prints started with vintage cars and crazy stupid images in multi colours to create very funky wear.
From playsuits to boy friend jackets to pencil dresses, skirts, corset top, bolero jackets, maxis, backless top, and even a sari with a cropped top, the collection was aimed at the woman who wants to stand out in a crowd. Men's wear had soldier shirts, jackets, shorts, trousers and neckwear following the same theme. The very ornate but equally hep clutches, bags and jewellery added to the look of the line.
For men and women who want to add a touch of humour to their wardrobe, Quirk Box by Rixi Bhatia and Jayesh Sachdev will bring a lot of fashion fun at any event.
