We’re back on this beautiful Friday with some of our favorite things from this week, and what a week it’s been! MBNY Fashion Week, Valentine’s Day, Wills Lifestyle Fashion week in Delhi and so much more! We’ve picked out 5 things that caught our eye amidst all of that (and we promise, a more in-depth look at the Fashion Weeks next week).
First up, while we’re on the subject of Fashion Week, we could help but notice the splashes of Neon that punctuated designers’ collections this week, and we absolutely love it. Nanette Lepore went all out with a full-on Neon collection, and this photo really captures her show. Luxemi loves Neon for 2012, and this collection reminded us of a Laila Motwane Lehenga from our new collection (take a sneak peek at what we’re releasing next week!).
The Wills Lifestyle Fashion Week just started in Delhi, but already, we’ve seen some truly inspired looks. Luxemi darling Kavita Bhartia showed this fantastic light-weight saree which created sleek lines and a clean silhouette, but still showcased great prints and embroidery on the border. We love the “club pallu” look, with the applique on the shoulder. We’re also digging the skin-tight patterned sleeves on the blouse, somewhat reminiscent of David Koma’s futuristic-meets-tribal look (especially with the earrings).
This next inspiration is something we repinned the other day and it got a ton of love. We’re a big proponent of sustainability and reusability (check out our post on Eco-Friendly fashion), and thought this DIY home decor project was great. Just cut up an old saree, salwar or dupatta fabric, mount it, and frame it for a cool, ethnic-feeling wall piece. PS: Are you following Luxemi on Pinterest yet?
If you’re an avid reader of The Luxe Report, you know that Luxemi was founded by a couple of Louisana girls, and we couldn’t go this Friday without paying homage to a King Cake in honor of Fat Tuesday! Speaking of neon…Can’t wait to dig into this one…
And finally, we’d be remiss if we didn’t pay tribute to the great Whitney Houston. Her music and contribution to pop culture most definitely touched our lives, and we hope you can rock out to this brilliant Robyn/Whitney mash-up in her honor this weekend. “Dancing in Houston” by Zooash.
