NEW YORK, Jan 31, 2009 / FW/ — Making its debut in 2002, Anjali Kumar is relatively new in the New York fashion scene but it is already being carried at the Atrium, Darling and Eva Boutique and recently featured in InStyle Magazine as well as the E! Channel and WNBC.
Retailing from $180 to $400, expect Anjali Kumar to gather more fans as consumers continue to want designer clothing but at more affordable prices. And for Fall 2009, Anjali Kumar gave them their wish as the label brings modern ease to New York fashion trends.
Infusing a striking color palette and sumptuous fabrics with designer’s trademark design philosophy, the Anjali Kumar Fall 2009 / Winter 2010 collection are at once modern, stylish, and effortlessly wearable.
Flowing tunics, flirty dresses and billowing tops easily translate from day to night. Kumar created a line that is, in her own words, “on-trend with a simplicity and subtle flair in style, color or print, but never overdone”—a unique and refreshing approach to the market.
For Fall/Winter 2009, Kumar’s inspiration came from the designer’s own desire for clarity and brightness. Lively hues of plum and evergreen are played against warm tones of camel, olive, and rust. This season, Kumar expands on her trademark jewel-tone tunic dresses, incorporating vivid floral prints and a classic hound’s-tooth weave into a complementary collection of tailored pieces in soft wool and fluid bodies of silk.
Standout pieces include Kumar’s trademark silk charmeuse tunic dresses in plum and ebony, which can easily be slipped on alone or over leggings, an emerald silk chiffon peasant tank in a vintage-inspired floral print, and a checkered bell-sleeved cropped mini in contrasting camel and cream.
