On a Friday afternoon we ventured into the quaint lanes of Shahpur Jat ,my first time ever to this part of the capital city. I was surprised to find clean lanes with dotted with chic boutiques away from the mayhem and bustle that I normally associate with Delhi. What brought me here was the curiosity to take a sneak peek at Kanelle’s new spring summer collection 2015.
Kanika Jain in one of her own creations
I entered the boutique and met the pretty designer Kanika Jain who was dressed in a lovely white dress accessorised by a bold gold neckpiece. The inspiration behind Kanika’s spring summer 2015 collection was free spiritedness and it did come alive in this collection which must have been a difficult feat for the designer. The collection’s Indo European and that translates into understated elegance. I browsed around the store and checked out the offerings. Flowy silhouettes, pretty blush pinks, rust and ethereal whites, the clothes had me transfixed; the kind of spread that can fire up the hidden fashionista in anybody. Apart from some utterly feminine clothing I came across some bold edgy corsets. These paired with simple outfits appeared just perfect. The contrast of textures and combination of pieces, colours seemed just right. It’s not just the designs but even the choice of fabrics that range from organic cottons, linens, georgettes that make these pieces a must have in anyone’s wardrobe.
The jewellery that Kanika designs showcase another element of her creativity.. There were muted gold pieces with tassles which had a very earthy vibe to it. Then there were the bold clunky ones which had the Goth meets bling vibe. Each piece of jewellery is handcrafted , and the details are applaudable right from the beading, the diamantes, to the stones used .And if you though this was all that could be offered there’s more, bags and shoes! The bags were quirky and can jazz up the jadest of wardrobes.
I foresee a bright future for Kanika and look forward to visiting her boutique soon to jazz up my wardrobe.
