I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where. I love you simply, without problems or pride: I love you in this way because I do not know any other way of loving but this… (Pablo Neruda)
it’s Missoni kaftan dress, makes me perfect for a cruise or yatch party or even a brunch.
So there was this exhibition at the Taj of many a luxury designers and brands in fashion and I was invited there .These brands which were showcased here have not yet made an entry in the bangalore scene of fashion so this would also give an assessment of the choice and and an insight into the potential clients and market analysis of our lovely city, bangalore.
It was a breezy warm noon. The autumns in bangalore are different from any part of the world, they are nice, romantic and the weather of bangalore scores and gets all the brownie points , if any Bangalorean has to speak about this place. Unlike anywhere else in India , this place is so moderate, summers are never harsh and winters are just cool enough to let you use a few jackets , that too hardly. I swear by the weather here as you can practically pull out anything from your wardrobe any time of the year without any fear of fashion failure or disasters. But personally I believe in style and personal style, and not so much in fashion.
So here I was at the Taj Westend and the brands showcased were all from Roberto Cavalli , to what not .So I chose try on a Missoni. The gown I tried was one of the Kaftan styles. And Asian and Middle East impact on the fashion scene is big this season. This was one of the exotic pieces and I had to wear and write about.
Kaftans are comfortable loose garments that somehow offer both modesty and allure. They are both glamorous and comfortable, exotic yet simple. A kaftan can be an expensive, designer made status symbol, or an inexpensive discount store purchase. They can be found at ethnic specialty boutiques, or made at home with or without a pattern.
Kaftans look wonderful on young women as well as older women, thin or heavy set women. They are airy and cool on a hot summer day, or cozy worn over a turtle neck. The one I am wearing has a v neck and perfectly suits the season and my mood.( I love effortless style and fashion that complements your attitude).
In this gown or kaftan dress the Iconic Missoni patterns in Stripes, squares and zigzags exist by side, influencing one another, drawing closer to one another and superimposing themselves n an endless interlacing of horizontal bands, vertical ribs.Contrasting space-dyes and solid colours, flow through the netting.
This season´s Spring 2017 collection represents the essence of the Missoni language viewed from a contemporary perspective, re-visiting the ‘put-together’ look . Missoni represents modern elegance that is versatile and multicoloured and plays on a refined mixing and matching of woven fabric, knitwear colours, yarns, stitches and patterns.
This is one brand where fashion typically is not the put together look but being comfortable in your skin is what matters.
You won’t really need to accessorise a Missoni with its class coupled with ‘devil may care’ attitude, yet i thought of putting on a Swarovski to compliment the beauty, that is Missoni, I was flaunting. I would love to make it a part of my personal collection , how about you !!
It made for a perfect day which was followed by some lovely high tea.
