Gareth Pugh, a brilliant designer showcased his Spring|Summer 2011 collection in Paris through a short digital presentation. Fashion critics termed Pugh’s show as, “kaleidoscopic vision with a futuristic fetish slant”. Vogue summarized Pugh’s collection as replete of, “designer’s razor-sharp tailoring with articulated armour-like tops, chiffon capes in chequerboard prints and Samurai-style looks.”
But I found some of the silhouettes bearing an uncanny resemblance to our Churidaar-kurtas. A molten silver ensemble definitely looks like a silver churidaar-kurta. Even Asha Parekh style short hip-hugging kurti paired with a churidaar was seen on Gareth’s Techno collection. A-Line chiffon tops with rubberized neoprene leggings again bore resemblance to our ubiquitous churidaar-kurta.
