Under a cloudy sky and against the backdrop of an inky-blue ocean, designer Wendell Rodricks recently debuted his resort wear collection for 2015-2016 on the powder-soft sands of Canacona Beach in Goa.
In true Wendell style, the garments were flowy and easy-to-wear in fun colours of bright magenta, mint, peach, sand beige, dusty blue and sage green. Of course, Wendell’s signature hues of indigo, black and white were omnipresent throughout the collection.
Called Ahead Of The Curve, this array of shirts (in curved lines), jackets (worn draped, wrapped and open fronted), crinkled circle cut trousers, satin pyjamas, dhoti pants and bermudas – is a collection that used the curve, arc and circle in ingenious ways. The garments celebrate the curved line on seams, hems and silhouettes with minuscule details that gives the collection a unique newness.
However, it was the miniscule speedos and Brazilian swim trunks which got the most applause.
