Nimish Shah’s collection shifted from minimum, single colored, bold looks to printed ones in sandy shades. Titled ‘Housewives of Alibaug’, the collection of mainly daywear oozed a delicate, traditional sexuality.
Easy-breezy silhouettes in very soft, comfortable fabrics largely described the collection exhibited by Shift. While most appearances showcased solid the winter season shades, a few printed pieces offered some enjoyable sartorial relief. Shift’s designs are excellent to take from the bar to the boardroom so we are undoubtedly our favourite designs.
Shah’s collection was an easy-breezy ready to wear. Which range from minis, midis to maxi dress, a few separates along with jumpsuits, the designer used a colour palette that mainly includes whites, nudes and beige.
Inspite of the dominance of modest colours, blues, reds and ochres did find their way into his canvas. The collection revived several classic elements which includes puff sleeves, Victorian collars, and Peter Pan collars. The two aspects that appeared at regular intervals were gathered waists and slipped shoulders. Signature knits and over-sized travel jackets which are a great choice casual jetsetters.
Overall, the collection was relatively simple, though not without the trademark Shift benefits of being stylish, elegant and comfortable. Outshining the rest was this simple and elegant black gown with a back slit.
We liked the silhouettes including sharp, clean cut ones and flowy, romantic ones.
