Manish Arora is the king of fantasy. His pieces jump out at you and create this wonderful fantastic story. It is as if the onlookers are transported to a different world, where everything you know in terms of fashion holds no place.
His Spring 2011 collection is full of bright neon hues and surreal silhouettes. Latex leggings anchor most every look and add a girlishness and youth to each piece, though the ones garnished with metal embroidery give a hint of the futuristic. Prints and embroidery are a main focus from pixelated polka dots to beading that would surely adorn the clothing of a maharaja. Skeleton motifs are shown in intricate vests resembling a ribcage (if yours was beaded and green and pink) and car motifs are also seen throughout the collection in a cropped shirt made up of yellow toy cars and hats resembling the same, made by milliner Christophe Coppens.
Manish Arora reminds us that fashion is not about keeping it safe and that a woman always needs to add a little fun and whimsy to her wardrobe.
