Runway Report
 
 

'Kite Runner', the title of Abhishek Dutta Summer Resort 2011, is evocative and invariably leads our thoughts to Khaled Hosseini's epic novel that played with the themes of friendship, betrayal, love, honor, guilt, fear and redemption… but the opening sequence put our thoughts to rest. 

In keeping with the theme of kites, there were origami folds everywhere! Hot-sellers included a laser cut knit top with a folded skirt, three-button tunic worn over churidars, shorts with inverted pleats and side pockets, and a printed sari with a laser cut halter. For men, Dutta dealt out lean jackets, organza shirts, orange pants, laser cut sleeveless shirts and tiny-lapel jackets.

Dutta's joie de vivre was infectious; only the most hardened cynics left the room feeling less than buoyant. "I use new techniques each season and merge it with my signature but at times it is exciting to take a risk and come up with a different look. This collection has geometric shapes inspired by kites, in a kaleidoscope of colors. Origami folds play an intestine role in creating hemlines, placards and seams. Appliqués, laser cuts, channel seams and screen prints depict the theme on shifts, trapeze and draped dresses, yogi pants and summer jackets with trapeze cuts," says the designer who has delighted us season after season.
