Sneha Arora let her imagination revolve around a Vintage Military theme for her collection called "A Soldier Story" at Lakme Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2013. It was a disciplined range with a marked regimental look that revealed a hint of stark determination and discipline in the sharp lines of the silhouettes and smudgy images of the prints.
Definitely masculine in appearance, the overall look was crisp and tailored in a mix of cotton dobbies, military twills, silks and wool blends. The colours remained totally martial in tones of green, khaki, navy all blended with burgundy.
The prints matched the theme with men in uniform, stars, camouflage, vintage/saluting soldiers and courage images kept the look under control. Shift dresses, shirts, long lean maxis, one button or five button double breast pleated blazers and shirt with release pleats were some of the highlights of this feminine martial wear. The print story although contrasted in colour tones blended into the look without being too obvious or obstructive.
Footwear followed the stern inspiration drawn from the look of the Greek royal army.
For fashion that had a marked androgynous look but with immense style directions, "A Soldier Story" by Sneha Arora will get the attention of admirers worldwide.
