MXS by Monisha Jaising & Shweta Bachchan Nanda

Day Two at the FDCI x Lakmé Fashion Week closed with The MXS label by Monisha Jaising and Shweta Bachchan Nanda making its debut in a grand fashion. The designing duo was all set to dress the fashion forward, fashionistas in their vibrant fun line inspired by the 80’s disco and street wear looks.

The on-ground show was an exclusive pre-launch initiative, for guests of FDCI X Lakmé Fashion Week who experienced the world-class Jio World Convention Centre (JWCC) in Mumbai’s commercial hub Bandra-Kurla Complex.

Fun and functionality along with bling and colour were the leitmotif of the line. The pop culture of the 80’s brought the colours in a range of sorbet and electric shades to the forefront. Adding further excitement to the colour palette were purple rain, Miami pink, neon yellow and UFO green. Fabrics matched the mood of the outfits as 100 per cent silk was juxtaposed with ribbed knits, while polo pique, brushed Luper knit and lycra added to the variety but denim moved surprisingly well with silk.

Keeping body positivity and the element of feel good in mind, the designing pair had leotards and fashion silhouettes that were reminiscent from American TV shows like Who’s the Boss, Miami Vice and Three’s Company. Metallics came to centre stage with minis, sheaths, sack dresses, pencil skirts and cropped jackets as well as some will-powered dresses. There was a mix of relaxed, casual sporty wear, along with athleisure touches and some elegant cocktail hour dressing. Kaftans floated in, while off-shouldered knits with side detailing and buttoned sailor pants added style. Denim was given some heavy-duty shimmer and glitter with fringes, while hoodies with cargo pants and bustiers brought in a dressy trio.

Jumpsuits were easy offerings for comfort wear, while a few gym wear options will appeal to the figure conscious ladies. The purple ‘V’ plunged neckline kaftan, the red glittering shirt with matching pants and the cape-sleeved jacket with bustier and pants will move stylishly into after dark glamour. The final sharply, tailored, white with black pin dots suit was the perfect end to the superb 80’s looks unveiled by the designing duo.

When it comes to living life stylishly but with a nostalgic flavour, the MXS label by Monisha Jaising and Shweta Bachchan Nanda will ensure that dressing up will be great fun for all events.
