THE MATADOR’S MISTRESS

Shades of flame red, burnt blue, emerald green and dark plum played with the stunning intricate tonal and rich gold embroidery. Full flared skirts of floor kissing gowns swirled around the models teamed with Matador jackets. Delicate ruffles, lace and abundant sheer additions came alive in the signature drapes that Shantanu and Nikhil are known for.


Long lush red Matador cape over sleek will-power jumpsuit and dazzling embroidered gowns were breath-taking. Embellished corsets had a marked Spanish senorita vibe when worn with the multi ruffled long skirts that swished down the ramp on models that were perfect for the Flamenco dance with their lacy wrist guards and dazzling ornate boleros.

Silhouettes that moved from the Cinderella gown to slinky sexy seductive numbers were glamour personified. The fabrics were a rich choice of tulle, velvet, silk and satin all perfectly apt for the 20 creations that the designer duo exhibited.

The final three sensational creations – frilled gown, panelled layered slim creation and the long-sleeved embroidered skirt – all with ornate Matador jackets were priceless in their beauty .

The most beautiful senorita in India, Bollywood beauty, Malaika Arora Khan glided down the ramp in a cut-out at the waist, long-sleeved black mermaid style gown with gold bead work that was totally mesmerising.

THE MUTINY 1919

If the women’s wear show was full of feminine, glamorous, seductive, elegance; then the men’s wear offering by Shantanu and Nikhil was a high octane, totally masculine, regimental offering inspired by history.

Turbaned and bearded dashing handsome models with a stylish demeanour strutted down the ramp in their masculine glory.

Creating a fashion mutiny on the ramp, Shantanu and Nikhil presented their very Avant Garde men’s wear line with the provocative title ‘The Mutiny 1919’. For their label ‘SnN Man’ Couture line Autumn/Winter 2016/17, the designers concentrated on rich handlooms, woollens and leather in masculine hues of ecru, black, navy, and grey with a hint of maroon. It was definitely a stylish rebellion on the ramp as the Capital’s well-known designer duo gave the stronger sex an innovative fashion direction for the coming season.

Double breasted Jodhpuri jackets, wide floppy pants and shaded angular draped kurtas looked stylish with churidars. Discreet contrast embellishments appeared on the hemline and armholes of Nehru jackets and the military touch was evident in angular flap pockets, 4 patched flap pockets and epaulets for sherwanis.

Jodhpuri jackets had a military touch over asymmetric kurtas. Long or short sherwanis, bundi with dhoti pants regimental kurtas, the battle- ready leather bundi and off-centre zippered sherwanis created the perfect action-ready garments. Faux fur appeared as capes to add a winter wear look. Detailing was restricted to flapped patch pockets that appeared on nearly every garment along with drapes and pin tucks.

Besides the gold motifs that appeared on the pockets of the jackets and bundies, the final black embroidered sleeves sherwani over a draped kurta had lavish glitter.

Closing ‘The Mutiny 1919’ was top Bollywood star Riteish Deshmukh turbaned and bearded in a black textured jacket, flared kurta and churidars.

When the Indian male wants to make a strong traditional fashion statement but with a stylish twist then he can go for ‘The Mutiny 1919’ look by designers Shantanu and Nikhil and create a fashionable war cry.
