A great line-up of intriguing kurta-jogger sets, and coordinates, along with slinky dhoti saris, unconventional cropped-top jogger saris and the eye-catching balloon lehengas, again with cropped tops but this time with flowing dupattas. Her signature, bohemian, relaxed, treatment for garments to the forefront. There was an amazing look that revolved around lounge wear-cum-street wear meets Indian wear that will delight fashionistas on the move during the coming season.


  • R|Elan™ used state-of-the-art technologies to make varied fabrics that perfectly blend with the ‘Kismet’ collection.
  • The artistic merger of Aztecs was clearly visible on the garments, while some digital evil eye-inspired ikats; quirky mosaic patterns and the favourite classic florals were splashed lavishly on the fabrics. 
  • The lavish sprinkling of Pitta kora work, intricate cut Dana, along with thread and wool embroidery

Designer’s Take

“It’s impossible to ignore the times we are living in when designing a collection now. We’ve spent the past year in kaftans and loungewear, they have become wardrobe essentials! The DNA of the brand has always been to revisit Indian silhouettes with a global mindset so that they are not limited by season or occasions, but instead are all-encompassing with a focus on comfort. R|Elan™ is undoubtedly the next generation of fabric, specially engineered to provide the dual benefits of high fashion and enhanced comfort which is the exact sentiment that ‘Kismet’ as a collection capturesThe next wave of clothing is all about minimal maximalism—which means that even when dressed to the nines, there will be a need for ease in silhouettes and fabrics. This collection is a unique take on Indian wear merged with loungewear that I’ve never done before. It is also heavily inspired by how I dress — I don’t have separate Indian and western wear wardrobes. My personal style is all about making transitional pieces work together no matter the occasion.”
