I’ve been telling you all about the ultimate luxury shopping destination that is Savoir Faire in my previous posts over at MissMalini.com. The one-day exhibit held on the 13th of Feb at the Hyatt Regency in Delhi brought together some of the best names in fashion from all over the country. Between the gorgeous space and the palpable excitement, I spent a fair amount of time spotting some amazing pieces that were an instant hit on my fashion lust-list.
Here’s the result of my thorough scouring.
# Bangle by Paayal Gupta [Rs.2,50,000]
Statement jewelry is always an investment. Made with semi-precious stones and kundan detailing, this majestic multi-colored peacock bangle is one to make you stand apart from the crowd. You could stack it with multicolored bangles for an ethnic look or just wear it as a single statement.
# Rose dress by Puja Nayyar [Rs.30,000]
This exquisitely crafted dress epitomizes the indigenous workmanship and textural techniques of India. The tweed bodice featuring a beautifully hand-crafted neckline, joined with a silk organza skirt featuring hand-embroidered roses make for an irresistibly elegant combination.
# Embellished clutch by Love to Bag [Rs.6300]
Among other hand-embroidered clutches, I found this one intricately crafted with bright bold tangerine beads and flower motifs. Designed keeping in mind the utilitarian factor, the clutch is perfectly suited for a day out with the girls or a fun cocktail night-out.
# Leah ear cuffs by Valliyan by Nitya [Rs.6500]
An obvious favorite, these on-trend ear cuffs have gained quite some popularity over the last couple of days after the uber stylish actress Sonam Kapoor donned them at the recent Hindustan Times style awards in Bombay.
# Red jersey sari by Amit Aggarwal [Rs.41000]
A cross between traditional saris and contemporary evening gowns, Amit Aggarwal’s pre-stitched jersey saris are extremely innovative and comfortable to wear. Featuring fluid drapery and minimal to no embroidery, this stark red sari resonates perfectly with the new generation of stylish woman on-the-go.
# Metal belts by Suhani Pittie [Rs. 10,000 approx]
Suhani Pittie’s unconventional metal belts featuring traditional Indian crafts like the Bidri star print for instance are visually arresting in their beauty. They could be paired perfectly well with an understated outfit to add an ounce of drama.
# Waistcoats by Pooja Shroff [Rs.7000]
Pooja Shroff’s waistcoats with dabka work in colors like hot pinks and oranges are a stylish match for your ethnic outfits to be worn on those slightly chilly nights.
# Tassle bracelet by Valliyan | Nitya Arora [Rs.2000]
How delightful is this spirited yet sophisticated tassle bracelet, like a chic little party on your wrist!
# Made-to-measure Milk Shirts from Hong Kong [$165]
Custom made pristine white shirts priced at US $165 (free shipping worldwide) are specifically designed for those who prefer luxury at their disposal. The brand while focusing on subtle detailing offers customized collars for men, keeping in mind that little things do make a big difference.
# Hand embroidered mojaris, 5 elements by Radhika Gupta [Rs.5500]
Radhika Gupta’s intricately embellished mojari ballerinas in bold bright hues are a must must have for the wedding season. Comfortable yet opulent, these shoes can alternatively be paired with a western ensemble for a contrasting statement.
Hope you enjoyed my fashion-forward mix of favorites from Savoir Faire!
