Mumbai: Showing his Lakmé Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2016 collection around the Poolside of St Regis, Dhruv Kapoor created a relaxed fun filled atmosphere of ‘Discreet Luxury’ for his creations. Dhruv a young achiever has rightly earned his place in this cosmopolitan and highly competitive space. The complexity of construction was shown through the simplicity of his vision.

The designer kept the audience on the edge of their seats with his magnificent line of bold and edgy outfits. The designer tasted success at an early age with his constant progress and recognition as one of the major pioneers in the present fashion circuit. This exposition was an extended version of his last presentation, which was inspired by high end sportswear.

The garments were divergent and intricate in terms of tailoring, the skills of the designer shone through his remarkable and well executed attempt. The bespoke array of well compiled costumes consisted of easy-going apparels in a mix of lengths and varying surface detailing that portrayed texture and technical depth. Created in jersey, leather, satin, cotton, denim and a hint of sheer fabrics gave the collection more depth and design.

The exciting ensembles revealed various traits of growing feminism with ease and grace and also cast a wicked spell with the sensuous aura. A contemporary jersey maxi teamed with denim jacket with leather patched pockets and a patch of satin in lavender stood as a distinct outfit along with an oversized tanned jacket thrown over a basic dress. The palette was contemporary and energetic, that visually spoke wonders for the collection and enhanced its appeal. Smoky grey along with soothing lavender was an interesting combination and additional drama was created with strong tones like Marsala and sunflower yellow.

The brand remained true to its basic ethics and delivered a splendid treat for the viewers as shift dresses, with metallic 3D appliqués added to the style quotient of the line. Detailing was restricted to off-shoulder silhouettes, polo and cowl necks and waists cinched with wide belts. Dhruv Kapoor gave the audience an optical tour of his high fashion extravaganza, which can perfectly mould into closets as it is high-street and work-ready at the same time.
