LFW W/F 2011 Day 3: Pria Kataaria Puri mixes glam, Middle East and punk

August 30, 2011

Persia and 1970s punk make an unusual sartorial combination. Yet the two concepts fused together wonderfully in Pria Kataaria Puri’s Persian Punk collection at Lakme Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2011.

Even though the collection was mostly chic resort and holiday wear , the tunics, one-shoulder blouses and gowns could just as easily be worn for an evening out. While the silhouettes were fluid, Pria experimented with fabric and fits for a cheeky effect. For instance there was a mini with fish tail sides, disc-shaped sleeves, a gold moulded sheeted mini and a delicate black beaded kimono sleeve cover.

Using various kinds of silks, Pria’s garments were inspired by Persian embroidered fabrics like nomadic patch work, button work, gold ribbons and cord work. We especially liked the printed leggings—they’re quite eye-catching! Hot orange was the colour of the show (we absolutely loved it!), while beige, black and brown also made an appearance with shimmer and shine. Interestingly, the prints had buttons as motifs!

Jewellery from the Cappuccino Collection were perfect complements to the clothes featuring gorgeous champagne coloured diamonds from drop earrings to bangles.
