The “Second Skin”, collection presented by VEEV brought an air of elegance and charm to women’s bags at Lakmé Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2012.
The enchanting show styled by Aki Narula, started with leggy models lining the ramp with their faces hidden under yards of fabrics and boring black and gray dresses, bringing suspense to the eyes of the audience that could hardly wait to see what the designer had prepared for them. The public’s eyes filled with amazement when the models quickly strutted down the ramp showing a kaleidoscope of colours and designs to suit every ones taste in bags and clutches.
Narula’s collection wasn’t just beautiful, it was timeless, sophisticated with perfect details and structure. The bags and clutches had easy silhouettes with trims and handles that seemed to come to life with the natural glow of their material. Layered appliqués and leather weaving gave a luxurious touch to the large range of colours and shapes of bags passing up and down the catwalk.
Hand bag flaps and handles were clasped with gleaming silver attachments; while the hand bag shapes moved from dainty evening clutches to large spacious drum shaped handbags, portfolios, shopping and shoulder bags.
If the grand display of shapes, colours and designs wasn’t good enough, the finale involved a show of their stylish woven bag in eight different colours on the arms of a graceful model leaving you wanting more.
