Manish Arora Spring/Summer 2015 Collection – Paris Fashion Week

“Don’t like my designs? You don’t have to”. This is what Indian designer Manish Arora said about his creations not long ago. There will probably be people for whom the designer’s unique style may be hard to understand and embrace, but today the brand Manish Arora has some of the most devoted fans all around the world, who appreciate the label for its psychedelic way of creating timeless pieces, for its ability to harmoniously combine Western forms and silhouettes with the Indian traditional art. The brand Manish Arora is designed for those, who love the East, literature, history and culture of India, it’s for people, who are looking for inner peace and harmony. And all these features surely apply to the newest Manish Arora spring/summer 2015 collection too, which has just been unveiled at Paris Fashion Week.

The Manish Arora spring/summer 2015 collection was set in pale pink tones and as always was imbued with all kinds of prints and patterns. In his designs Arora had lavishly used chiffon to create maxi accordion skirts printed with pink florals and paired with matching tops and thin jackets, layered loose shimmery dresses topped with hooded thin coats, strapped figure hugging long dresses with floral cutouts running up on the front from the hem to the top, high waisted knee length shorts with matching small tops and so on. Arora’s nylon pieces were noteworthy as well. The designer presented to our attention light blue nylon tops with matching jackets and paired them with flowy skirts made of a see-through fabric that depicted natural scenes with flowers, clouds and even birds. Nylon had also been used to design robe-like short dresses and knee-length hip hugger shorts with matching tops. Arora had also adorned his dresses and tops with Zardozi appliqué using jewels and colorful crystals.
As the majority of Manish Arora collections, the Indian designer’s spring 2015 line as well was not deprived of Indian culture and symbolism. First we had the printed eye on nylon tops and dresses paired with long thin jackets (was this a reference to the concept of the third or inner eye popular in Hinduism?). Then we had depictions of faces of different chief Hindu deities on shimmery tops and chiffon dresses.

After presenting all these shimmery fabrics and beads and colors to us, Arora had decided to end his spring 2015 show with simpler pieces. We saw long-sleeved, short-sleeved and sleeveless basic dresses in white that had small prints of Hindu symbols on the front to keep the Eastern feel the collection had about it.
The footwear showcased at the show was also rather noteworthy and memorable. Arora had designed high platform silver strap up shoes that complemented the looks perfectly. Particularly interesting were the head accessories, such as colorful small caps, and clutches and handbags, decorated with prints of eyes, snakes and lips.
Pieces from Manish Arora collections have always been unique and we loved the Manish Arora spring/summer 2015 collection to bits, but how many of us would be bold enough to wear these pieces?
