Double dose of inspiration, technique and clothing, this is what Nitin Chawla’s Lakme Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2015 collection is all about. Nitin Chawla, owner of Theorem and known for creating his own imaginative stories for collection, will be presenting ‘Opposites Attract’. It’s a love story of a sports nut and street fashion loving guy and a sophisticated girl who are totally opposite in nature but gradually fall in love, and while they try to complement each other, it results in modern androgyny.
The collection that will be detailed with exposed zippers and thread filing technique has its own story behind it. “Last year while I was in Khan Market, I saw a rug that was made through somewhat similar to quilting technique. That idea struck my mind and then, I started exploring something unique in terms of technique for my next collection and finally I zero downed on thread filing,” says the designer.

For men, the collection will offer jackets, shirts, trousers and sports jackets. For women, ‘Opposites Attract’ will have crop jackets, dresses, suits, and high-waist trousers blended in fabrics including cotton, knit and mélange knit.
With high street fashion and western silhouettes as key to the 16-look collection, the colours too, will be western with dark grey, black, charcoal, military green, white, and pink making a splash.
Chawla’s Theorem has always been liked and questioned for its creative play with dark shades. “After every collection, I was asked about absence of colours in my clothes, so I think this collection will be an answer to those queries. Moreover, as the collection will be inclined towards modern androgyny, it will certainly have some extra edge that both the genders would love to explore,” he concludes.
