If red lips were 2011, then 2012 was all about the pretty red dress. Amit Aggarwal, Gaurav Gupta and Nachiket Barve created many red dresses as did brands such as Diesel, Zara, Esprit and Marchesa. There's no one reason why red was hot this year, it just seemed to be everyone's favourite.
Jewellery for Men
IT'S not often that you find men making a statement with jewellery. But 2012 changed that. From actor Abhay Deol, who wore a giant paisley maharaja brooch-cum-armlet with a large, carved emerald and three emerald chains on the ramp, to actor Ayushmann Khurrana, who preferred a brooch and three-string pearls, men seem to be getting serious about their baubles. This year's India International Jewellery Week had men as showstoppers. "Jewellery is very much part of the male sartorial lexicon," says jewellery designer Hanut Singh.
from brands such as Prada and Miu Miu, and Indian designers such as Masaba Gupta, Kallol Datta and Yogesh Chaudhary to thrift stores stocking jumpsuits, dresses, scarves and shirts, there was eccentricity written all over the designs. We wore cameras, cows, headless mannequins, pacman, racing cars, horses, deers, owls and anchors in graphic print. After many years, prints were getting a fresh treatment. Geeky-boho-chic, these worked both for men and women.
There was a time when cross-border fashion made waves in Indian metros such as Delhi and Mumbai. The soft, Pakistani lawn fabric, flared full sleeves, khula pyjamas and churidars, and prints were our favourite till it reached an overkill. It didn't help that shopkeepers and masterjis began to stitch cotton fabrics together in Pakistani suits, and not doing justice to these at all. Somewhere during the year, the Pakistani suit died a natural death.
