Think of the sexy Parisian siren Brigitte Bardot lolling on the beaches of the French Riviera. Now take a look at Monisha Jaising’s “Riviera” collection, which took the audience back to the future at Lakmé Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2015 and closed Day Four with an inspired glamorous line.
Monisha’s muse had to be the bombshell Bardot, when she envisaged this collection and influenced the designer’s modernised Riviera look of the 1960’s and 1970’s. Her garments were definitely not for the demure wallflower. The Monisha Jaising woman may be naïve, but sexy, liberated and daring, to bare on the beaches and in the fashion playgrounds of the world. Monisha Jaising’s collection offered the adventurous dresser her trade mark kurtis that have created a unique individual genre in the global market. Monisha added relaxed flared pants and some really wildly printed pop coloured dresses that could move with great ease from beach to brunch. Finally, Manisha’s Red Carpet glamour for the sun, sea and sand moved from sensuous swimwear to the luxuriously body-hugging graceful gowns.
