NUPUR KANOI
Runway Report
 

The sight of models in blazers and waistcoats.. Pathani suits and Nehru jackets.. shirts and rustic sarongs—all of them in a meditative glistening palette skimming chutney and ivories—evoked the days of Hollywood icon Katherine Hepburn and Bollywood icon Nadia: so reverential and so androgynous. That fits Nupur Kanoi's own aesthetic to a tee. The collection she showed at Lakme Fashion Week moved with serene poise through a shadow zone between mens- and womenswear. Some of the popular looks were the Pathani kurtas teamed with cutwork waistcoats and the printed jumpsuits. The rustic lungis crafted from bronze zari weaves were severe but erotic. Overall she certainly put her imprimatur on the androgynous look.. and demonstrated her sure hand with pieces such as the printed silk safari suit and the ganjee-lungi maxi that created a slouchy draped effect at the ankle. Definitely a winner!
