MUMBAI, (GNI): When Goan designer Saviojon Fernandes presents a collection; it has to be relaxed, cool and comfy. That is exactly what the designer offered at The 6Degree Studio during Lakmé Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2017.
With a collection that represented movement between space and time the designer presented a beautiful line of silhouettes. Keeping his fabric story simple, Saviojon selected cotton, canvas, Raffia, silk, satin and twill for the 35 pieces that were ideal holiday and travel wear.
The prints and patterns were perfect for the hot summer days as Yacht stripes, Madras checks, Dabu block prints, blotched inks; indigo, Holland wax cotton, men’s shirting and discharge marbelling played an important role for the garments. For an unconventional showing, buttons were used in a very innovative way to give a new look to the garments. Long flared skirts with slits along the sides were edgy and intriguing fashion.
The collection’s ensembles were all engineered to perfection with a colour story, which was as interesting as the silhouettes. Intense multi-hued drama caused a sensation as a riot of colours burst onto the ramp in tones of inky blue, pure white, crayon, charcoal, paprika, dung green, dove grey and sunset.
Detailing was the focal point of the ensembles, as contrast top stitching, fin seams, fish nets, crocheting, bondaging, colour blocking and exposed interlocking were the eye-catchers of the outfits. Two Bandhani garments were showcased giving a slight touch of authentic Indian outfits. Each garment was a visual treat with tailored deconstruction implemented to utmost perfection. With a play of texture and pattern coming together, the designer displayed a line of dramatic garment construction with a raw earthy appeal, making the creations eye-catching. The silhouettes remained relaxed and laid-back with fluid, feminine, forms being Saviojon’s favourites. The ensembles were a remarkable balance between elegance, aesthetics, comfort and above all practicality.
When resort-hopping or lounging in the sun; Saviojon Fernandes has the best fashion options to make a great stylish impact.ends
