Luscious in lavender

With the change in climate and all-things-acceptable in fashion currently, it shouldn’t be a shocker to see a spring staple ruling the Fall/Winter 2019 trends. Till a few years back, nobody could imagine a lavender pairing up with regular autumn colour palette, but the lovely shade has shed its image from being grownups pink to the ‘IT’ colour on international runway and blooming this season.

Pastels never go out of fashion, and with the versatility of lavender to embody luxe with its rich violets to girl-next-door with soft lilacs, it is going to stick around and keep your winter wardrobe cheerful. With designers like Christian Cowan with his iconic feather covered lavender pant suit donned by Cardi B, and brands like Lanvin, Tom Ford, Cushnie celebrating the muted hues of purple globally, the legacy of this beautiful shade could help readapt luxury into contemporary times.

Historically, lavender has always been associated with royalty and grace for mature women. Thanks to experimentation, the application is not restricted anymore, says designer Anjul Bhandari.

She says, “In the West, lavender was a popular colour for bridesmaid at spring weddings; whereas, for Indian weddings I imagine it to be a perfect shade of Mehendi, sundowner or a destination wedding. A delicate lehenga or a sari with silver embellishments would look very pretty on the bride, her mother or her friends for an outdoor day event. It looks amazing when paired with jewelled tones like rani pink, emerald green, purple or maroon.”

Being a lively shade, it becomes fun layering or pairing this particular tone. You can always go for a lavender turtleneck and pair it with flared pants and trench coats for a winter look, advice designer duo Riya and Priya Jadav. Deccan Chronicle
