Utilitarian chic

Theorem by Nitin Chawla summer resort 2014 showcased at Lakme Fashion Week stood out because of the fact that the designer married style with functionality. Internationally, Balmain, Isabel Marant and Alexander Wang have done fall pieces which are workwear-inspired. Balmain’s reinvention of the safari jacket being one of the prominent examples. Fashion, as they say, is a reflection of the times we live in and designers across the board have toyed with the idea of androgyny and married style with easy functionality. 



Nitin used a lot of zippers and multi-pocket separates which added to the collection’s sporty appeal. 



I particularly loved the use of dots, star prints. Bomber jackets with printed sleeves, shackets with contrasting sleeves, contrast bib shirts, printed double breasted overcoats with flaps, nautical stripped coats with zippers were some of the highlights of this line.  


The woven floral two-button coats and double breasted suits should definitely be in every dandy’s summer closet.
