Indian fashion designer Manish Arora presented his latest Spring Summer 2017 Life is Beautiful womeswear collection on September 29th, during the ongoing Paris Fashion Week.
“For Spring Summer 2017 Manish Arora conjures up a technicolour utopia rendered in rainbow shades and shimmering sherberts worn by a jubilant cast of shiny happy people. 50s silhouettes hark back to an era of mid-century optimism in a retro reality where cartoon housewives wear hourglass cotton day-dresses in table-top prints adorned with classic Americana tropes like ice-cream sundaes and creamy cupcakes. Flamingo festooned, swaggering sailor boys in nautical stripes and sugary tones straight out of a Pierre et Giles portrait flirt with My Little Pony pin-ups thanks to a new collaboration between Arora and the iconic equine this season.
The collection is a joyous celebration of life and the natural world. Tropical flowers and degrade sequined toucans embroider lace effect silk organza that resembles luscious leaves in rainforest green. Tie-dye silk chiffon applique birds of paradise flutter over the skirt of a sunshine yellow dress and bugle bead peacocks strut on a sky-blue tulle gown in a rainbow finale of couture proportions.“
