Sea of Ideas

If you ever doubted the impact of Alexander McQueen’s SS10 Plato’s Atlantis collection, you can sea it for yourself in the works of these designers.

His influence, like a body of water, ran down stream at Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week, surfacing over the last couple of days.

Not that they were the first this season to show sea-inspired collections (or, for that matter, to be inspired by McQueen), but in the works of Amit Aggarwal, Pankaj and Nidhi Ahuja and Joyjit Talukdar, I could immediately see what the tentacles of Lee’s legacy had touched.

It goes to show you that we may be worlds apart, but oceans unite us.
