Before The Devil Wears Prada hit theatres, the colour “cerulean” was not heard of in common conversation. But after Meryl Streep explained the importance of it to Anne Hathaway, suddenly, everybody was informed about the importance of this pale blue hue in a fashion editor’s dictionary.
Dhruv Vaish, a quiet and reticent designer who is immensely talented and whose impeccable work speaks volumes, impressed us with a cutting edge collection of menswear at Lakme Fashion Week, inspired by the cerulean colour of the sky.
Says the soft-spoken designer, “With the onset of summer, my collection is inspired by the varying moods of the summer sky – from the purples of dawn to bright morning sunny blue and eventually to the tranquility of the white sky.”
Dhruv has fashioned his silhouettes from an eclectic mix of fabrics which iclude silk, denim and crisp cotton. The collection explores a lot of surface texturing, patchwork and edgy designs.
Elements like tie and dye and eclectic prints are mixed with modern stylish cuts and geometric patterns.
Structured silhouettes comprising of Bomber and Denim jackets are interspersed with more relaxed shirt kutras and fluid pants.
