Here’s the first look of Neha Gandhi Binjrajka’s new fashion collection ‘Summer Love’
Relaxed styles, sexy slits, lots of colours and minimal accessories mark Neha Gandhi Binjrajka’s ‘Summer Love’. The celebrity stylist and designer tells The Telegraph about the latest offering from NGB.
The collection looks colourful with newer styles...
I am calling the collection ‘Summer Love’. Summer is here and it’s all about bringing the vibrancy back. After softer palettes, everyone is ready to try bolder colours. My main aim was not to use dull or soft colours. The prints are all created by us.... Last year we had flowers. So, this year, we wanted to go more geometric. There is a feel of free-flowing art. The colours are such that they will immediately catch your eye. With the cuts, we have tried to keep it really easy-breezy. They are all partywear and you can wear all the garments from day to night. It’s easy to wear and there’s not too much fuss going on. You have all the summer essentials for your beachwear or holiday or a night party or brunches and lunches. I call it occasion wear.
What are the new cool things you are doing with the label?
From the past year, I have learned quite a lot. I realised I have to keep different cuts. With this collection, I have tried to show the varied cuts. Everyone comes in with different body types and I want to have something for everyone when they walk in. There are about 15 designs in the collection and it’s a mixed variety of styles. Everyone comes in and says: ‘Aur dikhao!’ The famous patent dialogue that all designers, I am sure, get a lot! (Laughs)
Fashion is moving towards seasonless clothing. Yet, are there any summer classics for you?
I love nice, easy dresses. The yellow-and-orange slip dress is a summer staple right now. You can put it on for an afternoon lunch. The right jumpsuit can also make a nice summer outfit. Like us, add a bit of colour to your wardrobe this season. It is a must!
The colourful eyes look so cool!
I loved how Prasenjit (Biswas; make-up pro) added colours to the eyes! It added to the garments and complemented them so beautifully.
