It has now become quite a predictable trend in Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week to see few ensembles or collections carrying uncanny resemblances to those which have been showcased previously. A few seasons ago I had tweeted images of Shantanu Goenka’s ensemble resembling Alexander McQueen. The déjà vu moment returned in WIFW Day 1 when Charu of Picky C tweeted, “Give me a minute till I recover from Surily’s Gucci rip off. #wifw”.
I definitely cannot disagree with Charu’s tweet but again wont’ completely agree either! Given that this follows exactly one season after Gucci SS 2013, the top at Surily definitely seems to be ‘inspired‘ from Gucci. However, one shouldn’t forget that honeycomb pattern is a major trend for this season and has featured in many other ramp shows including Alexander McQueen, Derek Lam and Marios Schwab.
