MUMBAI, (GNI): Lakmé Salon with designers Gauri and Nainika unveiled the chic and glamourous “The Art of Latte” collection- a colourful and breath-taking showcase of hair, make-up and fashion at Lakmé Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2019.
The two brands came together to present a show that captures the mood of the contemporary woman – her confidence, elegance and love for fun, glamour and drama – the desire to stand out without having to try too hard.
The stunning Yami Gautam walked the ramp for The Art of Latte collection as the show stopper.
With free-flowing silhouettes, the collection by Gauri & Nainika had femininity at its core. Created in shades of red, pink and blushing nudes interspersed with bold floral prints, each piece, was designed to make a statement. Chiffon, crepe de chine, organza and micro crepe were the fabrics seen throughout the show. High-low dresses with signature floor sweeping trains, billowing organza sashes, and breezy wraparounds, all added glamour and drama to the runway.
The specially conceptualized hair looks for the show by Lakmé Salon’s Experts took inspiration from their newest haircut and colour collection that brings the hues of coffee brews to hair colour. The hair was interspersed with pops of colour – from deep copper to vivid berry tones, icy blues to gentle hazelnut highlights to create statement-looks on the ramp.
The make-up looks channelled colour to create a drama on the ramp. The hues ranged from soft pink sweeps to electric blue, block orange eyes and coral lids – taking from the pantone colour of 2019.
Pushkaraj Shenai, CEO, Lakmé Lever said, “With years of backstage and runway experience Lakmé Salon has established itself as the final destination in all things beauty and hair for the Indian woman. With this show, we unveiled our new ‘The Art of Latte’ collection that brings a twist on traditional browns. Each cut and colour in the collection is individualized to the lifestyle of the Indian woman and to ensure that she effortlessly stands out from the crowd. This collection will soon be available in Lakmé Salons across the country. Gauri and Nainika are known for their statement dresses, which add glamour and drama to simple silhouettes – much like what we are creating with our collection. Their design and style ideology match ours making them the perfect partners for this launch.”
