Quirky, edgy, colourful: Kallol at the LFW

Here's designer Kallol Dutta's collection from the Future of Fashion showing at the LFW today.

Known for his fascination with the macabre, Kallol Dutta came up with a typically distinct and unusual line at the Future of Fashion showing at Lakme Fashion Week today.

Using vibrant hues, he used the themes of jailstripes, checks and illustrations to adorn constructed silhouettes created from fabrics like Swiss voile, Habutai, net and kora. Take a look.

We start off with this jacket dress in charcoal and yellow.
