Synergy1 Delhi Couture Week highlights: Manish Malhotra re-creates early 20th century Indian royalty

July 28, 2011

Ace designer Manish Malhotra’s collection at Syngergy1 Delhi Couture Week 2011 sought inspiration from Indian royalty’s fashion choices from the 1920s to 1940s. Indian princes, princesses and maharanis largely stuck to traditional Indian wear, but their style was marked by a distinct British influence for at least a couple of decades.

Bollywood actor Sonam Kapoor kicked off the show:

The colour palette for women included cherry reds and burgundys with tones of mint green, aqua, and off-whites. The heavily-embroidered lehengas and kurtas were easy and voluminous, while the highly structured hair provided a contrasting look.

The color story for menswear comprised blacks, burgundys, royal blue, beiges and gold—all very royal colours!
