It's Summer In The City

Maheka Mirpuri previews SS16 collection

Come April 21 and designer Maheka Mirpuri will preview her SS16 collection – Summer in the City, at a SoBo hotel that will be transformed into effulgent candy hues reflecting the designer’s inspiration for the season.

Unusual shades ranging from poppy red to cherry and rose pink, from striking oranges and buttercup yellows to lilac and iced blues, from bright green to mustard and from ultramarine to teal sit side by side inthe Summer in the City collection. Flashes of iced coffee colours, whites and dove greys transform the Maheka Mirpuri SS 2016 collection into a full immersion of colour.

Exaggerated cold shoulders, a bow-ey affair, hand-painted floral motifs and horizontal, vertical, diagonal & zigzag colour blocking is what Summer in the City is all about. Maheka’s SS16 collection spells high-octane glamour with gloss & luxe.

Breezy silhouettes hit a burst of energy with a shout out to candy hues. Tiny lace shorts, fringed hemlines, voluminous kaftans, cape blousons, cotton shirts, floral printed chemise dresses & snazzy jumpsuits comprise Maheka’s Summer in the City. The little summer dress or the LSD takes over from the LBD in Maheka’s SS16 collection. Simply paired with flats, espadrilles, brogues or snazzy trainers the dresses come in various avatars - small but significant. Fluid silhouettes with long or knee-length dresses in straight or A-line are edged with polychrome floral motifs. The sexy slit that bares a hint of the thigh and the exaggerated look of the cold shoulders add to the drama of the collection. The kurtas gets a make-under in Maheka’s SS16 collection with the focus on the dramatic palazzos or the structured farshis with which they are paired.

From the misty organza to the foamy chiffons, from the sheer beauty of the lace and the cool comfort of the soft pure light cottons to the eye catching tie-dye the fabrics spell ease and high gloss luxury.

So with the scorching summer already on us Maheka says “It's imperative to dress at ease and feel comfortable yet #BeGlamorous. So take your style to the next level with your tinted sunnies & showing your cold shoulder. Splash that choice of a candy hue, get that flyaway effect and embrace the season’s floral theme to find your inner lil girl.”

Come to Summer in the City & be a part of Maheka’s candy crush extravaganza this season. Dress smart & #BeGlamorous.
