ANUPAMA DAYAL
Runway Report
 

Chic, rock, bohemian, classic, retro and ethnic: all these stock themes formed Anupama Dayal's collection 'Short Stories' for Summer Resort 2011. In that sense, the collection was laden with layered delights and surprises. Anupamaa has relaxed into a groove in which all the imagination she's developed and knowledge she's accrued over the years seem to flow out of her fingertips and into effortless collages of pattern, vivacious color and personal references. No outfit could be assessed in a single glance: It required at least a double take for the eye to take it in and the brain to name what's going on. There was the palette alone that embodied the rich color, feel and texture of Dulux Velvet Touch in bold color blocking; the drapes, the bows, the necklaces. 

That would be overload in anyone else's book, but for Anupamaa, this show had a relative simplicity. There was chic daywear in the form of maxis, layered midis, fluid trousers, slit skirts, sarongs, kaftan dresses, pleated batik tube over gold bikini, long dresses embellished with turquoise sequins, placement printed orange tunics and sheer beach covers in chiffon, chanderi, georgette, crepe and twill silk that gave her resort line the perfect holiday feel. The two saris—black Tangail with tie-dyed chiffon pleats edged with acid pink flowers and teamed with a white georgette shirt and the other an ornate rust printed one—holds youthful appeal. The sheer fabrics were highlighted with Batik, tie-dye, floral and geometric motifs though what elevated the collection to the current context were the accessories i.e. rangometry necklaces and charming footwear. It was a pleasure to witness and something to be inspired by.
