Fusion Fashion: Indian Trousers at Lakme Fashion Week

Bomber jacket and zippers skilfully presented in a new-age Indian context. That’s what Nupur Kanoi did, giving fashion lovers another taste of her version of fusing sensibilities. On similar lines, you could take a simple kurta and team it with a pair of well fitted Indian trousers. For that bad a** edge, throw on a cool biker jacket over the look. Remember to keep the colour story balanced using similar tones as opposed to a stark colour contrast.


 Fusion fashion is all about telling stories with the way you put a look together. Global Desi’s a/w ’13 showcase presented influences from tribal and gypsies, that were interestingly fused to form a look that is cool and free spirited. Printed indian trousers teamed with embroidered kurti tops can form the base for a fun look. A cool desi-graphic tote, a printed bandana and a pair of shades would add that sense of ‘street chic’.
The indian trousers have proved their versatility once again! At Krishna Mehta‘s winter/festive ’13 show at LFW, we saw model, Candice Pinto working a look that had a flow-y asymmetrical kurta worn over a pair of wide-legged pajamas. You could try to personalize this look with a voluminous flared kurta over a pair of printed palazzos.
