And amazingly, the collection – Krésha x Fancypants has got exactly what you’ve asked for. Being a high-street label, FancyPants has always been keen on making international trends easily accessible to fashion enthusiasts in our country. So, while maintaining the ethos of this brand, fashion designer  Krésha Bajaj Zaveri has handpicked pieces for their capsule line. Her bold and minimalistic style along with refined aesthetics sensibilities was rather evident in her styling.

For instance – she has paired a cold shoulder knit with a leather skirt for that ‘tone on tone’ effect which by the way, can make you look taller. Apart from that a ribbed athleisure pant was teamed with a formal bodysuit for a ‘practical party dressing’ look. To top that, a metallic bomber jacket has been worn over track pants with skull detailing and a strappy buster. This gave it the sportwear meets glam attitude.

Moving on, layering was looked at from a different perspective altogether. In one look a military cropped jacket was styled with torn boyfriend jean and in another a distressed denim jacket was thrown over the shoulders. You should totally take notes from the look wherein an embroidered denim jacket is considered to belt such that it is tied around the waist. And for an effortless and cool look, a crisp white shirt has been seen over boyfriend jeans. The highlight of both the styles has ought to be its floral embroidery.

Quick question – Isn’t this collaboration just perfect for a vibrant woman who enjoys staying ahead of the trend and is unapologetic to experiment with her style. We think, it so is. As a matter of fact, while putting their own twist to this evolved collection, they have utilized pieces that are on-trend for Summer 2017. From the bomber jacket to the corduroy luxury pants and even the applique on jackets, all the styles have an 80’s and 90’s vibe.

The modern approach combined with styling tricks, adds a whole new flavour to every look, making seems aspirational, in a way. Apart from that, the colour palette is a mix of pastels and dark hues. Also, the accessories (chokers, backpacks), hairdos (love the braids and space buns) and makeup (intense lip colours,) are so on point this season. The idea of making streetwear fashion more functional was the DNA of how it all worked.

Now, you too can inject some newness into your old wardrobe or simply change it all up and get a new one altogether with their capsule collection.
