Luminescence By Anushka Khanna
Anushka Khanna’s new festive collection titled ‘Luminescence,’ encapsulates the Mumbai-based Khanna’s signature aesthetic.
Luminescence is a symphony of iridescence and grace, capturing the celebratory sparkle this season brings. Each piece in this collection is a harmonious blend of textures, delicate embellishments, and Khanna’s flair for tailoring. With a seamless fusion of contemporary silhouettes and timeless elegance, Luminescence exudes a charm that captivates the senses and ignites the imagination.
Khanna’s USP is her use of colour and this time around she’s spanned the spectrum— from delicate blush and icy mint, to look-at-me electric hues and evergreen, mysterious black. She plays with trompe l’oeil embellishments, adding luminosity and iridescence through intricate cuts of gota-work; craft and texture through brightly hued, contrast threadwork; and femininity through pearls and the tiniest of sequins.
For the festivities, she forges ahead with her now signature, long, lean jackets, slouchy, insouciant kurtas, structured blazers and waistcoats, and fluid drapes with the classic sari. And this time, she has put the focus on the lehenga—a full skirt that’s meant to be twirled–paired with separates that echo your vibe. Maybe you pair it with a sexy choli or maybe you feel like a bit of an edge–a beautifully cut waistcoat will do that.
