They shot to fame with their eye-catching visual art, rendered on skirts, crop tops, blazers and cigarette pants. This time, Jayesh Sachdev and Rixi Bhatia of Quirkbox strayed from their bright palette, showcasing a collection rich in jewelled tones like aquamarine, emerald, ruby and onyx, on day one of Lakme Fashion Week Winter/ Festive ’15.
Inspired by the idea of an enchanting love story in a forest from days gone by, the duo used graphic prints and patchwork, on long striped dresses, soft shirts, tunics, pencil skirts and unstructured coats. Two maxis, inscribed with the words Love and Pyar, the latter in Devanagari script wrapped up the eclectic collection.
In the same show, designers Shikha and Vinita presented a collection inspired by distortion, called Error 508: Loop Detected.
Simple silhouettes like boxy pullovers worn over baggy white shirts and pencil skirts with patchwork formed the basis of the collection. A long-sleeved blouse with a tiered back lent an unconventional twist to a sari while black, white and brown checks adorned cropped pant suits.
In their few years in the industry, the young designers behind Quirkbox and Ilk pushed the envelope of conventional style, carving their niche.
