Sailex for LFW Winter/Festive 2013


The Fashionable Mystique of the Far East was presented by Sailex at Lakmé Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2013. Experimenting with the sartorial style directions from the Land of Dainty Kimonos, Sailex allowed the traditional Japanese ensemble as well as the quipao and the cheongsam to set his creativity into motion.


Working with luxurious fabrics and the glamour of jewel tones, Sailex translated them into classic sophisticated silhouettes for the stylish global lady. For ultra-glitzy dressing up, which had large doses of not only minimalism but also ‘maximalism’, the collection offered a palette of regal ensembles that told a fluid, feminine story all its own.


In a crisply edited show of 24 ensembles, divided into four colour groups – peacock blue, purple, fuchsia and scarlet -the fabrics used were crepe, satin, taffeta, chiffon and tulle to project the sophisticated yet seductive look.
Embroidery was discreet with bead work creating the cherry blossom motifs on selected places of the well-finished garments. Silhouettes were controlled and fitted though a pea coat, raglan sleeve dress with Peter Pan collar, shift and trench jacket had some leeway in volume. The raglan sleeve brought the oriental influence for the oversized beaded dress and the final line of scarlet creations played with necklines ranging from deep “V”, square, to wide, round and high. The solitary peacock blue silk satin sari with cross strap blouse was elegant in its simplicity.
