If you specifically wait for the Paris Fashion Week to discover Manish Arora’s always new, whimsical ways to play with fashion, get ready to be overwhelmed with one of his most creative collections unveiled so far, as the Indian designer indeed outdid himself with the mesmerizing, otherworldly Manish Arora spring/summer 2017 lineup.

With rainbows and birds framing the entire runway show with encouraging, positive vibes, the Manish Arora spring/summer 2017 ready-to-wear collection was overall extremely playful and irreverent, as his cheerful “Life Is Beautiful” motto was clearly omnipresent in each one of the lineup’s proposals.

Those who don’t fancy porcelain dolls, however, might even find some of these staples kind of disturbing, as the Indian designer actually brought revisited ‘real life’ Barbie dolls on stage. The dolls nevertheless quickly introduced us to the collection’s main theme, which is that of the American society in the Fifties.

Here seen in its most utterly sarcastic and Pop Art-inspired way, this pattern got translated to its most variegated sense, with not only signature balloon skirts dominating the scene, but even genderless navy-inspired staples and exotic patterns making their glorious way through the collection.

To better achieve his jocose paradise-under-the-sun pattern, Manish Arosa asked Indian artist Bharti Kher to design most of the prints, sequined and embroidered motifs, which inevitably added an even more contemporary playful touch to the entire collection.

Never boring but also extremely wearable (maybe one piece at a time, if you don’t like overly colored garments), the Manish Arora spring/summer 2017 collection was filled with any kind of summer must-have, from ironic tees with My Little Pony messages to shredded denim and girly mini dresses. It also included visionary, revisited preppy-inspired staples, such as bon-ton lightweight sweaters worn over a button-down shirt.

Some skirts, trousers and sweatshirts got even embellished with patterns of flamingos, parrots, seahorses, fish and fruits, the richly multicolored motifs of which introduced us to Manish Arora’s abstract geometric prints, which in return surely infused the Paris Fashion Week with its most whimsical patterns.

Unapologetically kawaii, Manish Arora’s collection also treated us to an astounding amount of cool accessories, from sneakers to handbags (and stuffed animals). The accessory line featured platform creepers with rainbow soles, for which Manish Arora asked French artist Nikos’ help, quirky rhinestone-studded fish bags, and even neck collars that resembled fried eggs.

Compared to the runway shows we had the chance to analyze during these past few days, the Manish Arora spring/summer 2017 collection abruptly stood out of the crowd, as every single detail the lineup showcased only evoked cheerful memories and free-spirited vibes.

With all of the pieces being absolutely unique and also blatantly winking at the current millennials and humans from the Generation Z, we bet this collection will be featured in most of our social media feeds!
