Logitech teamed up with designer Arpita Mehta for a joint seasonless grand fashion and technological extravaganza by the FDCI x Lakmé Fashion Week March 16-21.
The Logitech concept inspired Arpita Mehta to bring forth a collection called “Reflections” that explored the unique style elements within women. There were four distinct strong prints curated with care for this unique association.
Starting with florals for the versatile woman, Arpita moved to abstract prints for the bold strong user, then onto the whimsical leaf design for the boho-chic woman and Arpita finally ended with the butti print for the understated dresser.
The summer palette came alive for the collection and comprised a variety of soothing hues, which was also divided into a quartet of shades. There were neutral sand tones, and relaxing ocean colours that brought in variations of summer blue, yellow of the mango, and the flame red inspired by the setting sun.
Set against the waves of the summer sea, Arpita’s beach-cum- resort collection was a fantasy of prints and silhouettes that were also cleverly reflected on the Logitech keyboard.
Arpita kept the silhouettes in her characteristic style. There were easy, breezy, flowing, sheer, tiered skirts, swirling capes, comfortable kaftans, relaxed, slouchy, summer pants and cute bralettes. Strappy maxis with tasselled décolleté, the bralette and slashed sheer beach skirt, languid kaftans detailed with tantalizing fringes and tassels along with Arpita’s signature draped sari and tiny blouse in soft prints, were eye-catchers.
Mirror work was discreetly brought in to edge the beach robes. Shades of blueprints on white gave the ruffled blouse, pre-stitched saris, beach covers, and light summer jackets a holiday/resort vibe. The crossover mini splashed with sea blueprint and multiple fringes gave a fun element to the garment.
Shades of sun yellow in an abstract print on a sheer base lit up the draped skirt-saris, shararas with tiny choli and voluminous kaftan. The colour red entered for a sleek, slim maxi skirt and luxe mirror work jacket – both ideal for an afternoon brunch, while the will-power maxi with faux sleeves will work for sunset soirées.
The detailing was restricted to suede fringes, tassels, and cowries that added a touch of feminine glamour to the holiday, resort-style ensembles.
The coming months will surely prove very fashionable for stylistas when they opt for Arpita Mehta’s fashion-forward looks from her “Reflections” collection in collaboration with Logitech.
