Event Spotting: Bonanza Satrangi Spring/Summer 2014 Launch

Bonanza recently celebrated the launch of its immensely popular line, namely, Satrangi to showcase the Spring/Summer 2014 collection at Ocean Mall, Karachi. The event was a beautiful amalgamation of rusty roses, fine tea, vintage decor and some great live music with Alicia Dias on the vocals. The event further featured a small fashion presentation with an oriental spin to showcase Bonanza Satrangi’s new collection.

The most note-worthy aspect of this launch was the fact that wrinkle-free stitched lawn shirts were introduced for the very first time to the Pakistani audience. This is a brilliant step in the world of textiles in Pakistan especially considering lawn to be a fabric that requires consistent ironing and maintenance. The shirts are simultaneously breathable, hence making them ideal for summers.

The collection also consists of three unstitched lawn designs accompanied with lawn/chiffon dupattas to cater to the needs of those who wish to design their own outfits. The entire collection featured a vibrant yet sophisticated colour palette with good tailoring skills. Price range for the Satrangi pret falls between Rs. 1880 to Rs. 1980 and the unstitched ranges from Rs. 2180 to Rs. 2380, hence, making it very affordable.

All in all, the entire collection proves to be immensely practical in terms of great fabric construction, tailoring, colours and affordability. A must-have this summer.

The event was managed by Anisa and Amina Rashid Khan of RAK Associates with Maha Burney as the creative director and consultant and Tehmina Khaled of TAKEII managing Media & PR. Hair and make-up for the fashion presentation was managed by Raana khan.

Collection: Faraz Manan’s Collection For Crescent Lawn Spring/Summer 2014

Faraz Manan recently launched the Spring/Summer lawn collection in collaboration with Crescent Lawn at his outlet on M.M Alam road, Lahore. With Bollywood starlet Kareena Kapoor as his muse, Faraz believes Kareena defines beauty, linage, power and a universal appeal which is how he perceives a woman wearing his designs to be. He further added that his designs are fit for the Nawabs. Hence, having married a Nawab herself, Kareena was the ideal choice to further enhance his design philosophy.

The collection comprises of 18 breath-taking designs incorporating a soft colour palette along with some sharp tailoring. Being a textile designer myself and a buyer of his lawn, his incorporation of warp and weft in the construction of jacquard lawn is most certainly worth the praise and definitely sets him apart. A great effort then and a great effort now.

The Fashion presentation showcased Cybil Chowdhry, Nadia Ali, Noorey, Zara Peerzada, Subeeka Rachel and Alizey Gabol in the dazzling designs of Faraz Manan Crescent lawn. The collection will also be available at selected retailers worldwide. PR for this event is handled by Catalyst PR.

Product of the Week: Bags

As the new creative director of the famous Italian house MOSCHINO, Jeremy Scott proved to be sheer brilliance in sustaining the brand’s playful yet sophisticated approach to design.

There’s always a sense of humour when it comes to Jeremy and his design skills and that’s fairly evident in the edgy magnificence of the entire MOSCHINO Pre-Fall 2014 collection that the designer has debuted with. The most eye-catching and talked about aspect were the impeccably crafted jacket bags. And if I may, I find myself brimming with this OH-MY-GOD-I-WANT-ONE-NOW kind of appreciation for this bag.

The bags are the sheer epitome of all things fun and the craftsmanship is marvelous looking at the leather and the attention to detail. One would imagine it to be borderline kitschy but Jeremy successfully gets away with adding that oomph factor that we need every now and then. And for an individual like myself who does not believe in loud clothing, an accent as such is almost a prerequisite. Hence, I do end up experimenting a lot with my accessories and never with my clothes.

From Charlotte Olympia’s literal take on bags to Chanel’s Lego clutch, is this the next IT bag in the world of edge? I can see a huge celebrity following for this one.

Bag Spotting: Sarah Tabani

Sarah Tabani was spotted alongside her brother Umair Tabani at the Sindh festival, looking chic in a printed top, white skinnies and a miniature Louis Vuitton Alma BB Monogram Vernis Bag from the S/S 2012 collection.

Sarah was not only on trend with the size of her bag (view here) but also the Bleu Lagon shade was the perfect accent for the rather neutral outfit. An ombre ponytail and pearl studs finished off the look.

Had she sported a top knot instead, I’d be loving this look.

You can purchase the Louis Vuitton Alma BB here.

The aforementioned trend was thoroughly observed at New York Fashion Week Fall 2014. Below are a few images that are guaranteed to get your serious attention. Well, not just your attention but also your wallet’s. If I may, bon appetit!
