Nandita Basu’s collection at WIFW A/W 2010 was inspired by Utagawa Kuniyoshi, a master of Japanese art form Ukiyo-e from a genre of Japanese woodblock prints and paintings, featuring motifs of landscapes and history tales. The garments were contemporary western with traditional Japenese surface ornamentation.

The colour story talked about earthy hues of olive green, khakhi, tan, cherry red, navy and wine imparting their warmth just before the earth turns white and wintry. Hints of khakhi, rust and beige were also seen in the line. She has used leather, herringbone wools, twills, nets, knits and lurex blended knits. Large armholes with detailed sleeves, capes, jackets, pencil skirts, pleated pants tapered at the bottom, pleated shorts, sleek dresses and generously sized silhouettes were the key design elements.

There were surface textures, digital prints  and embroidery with clean and straight lines.

The hair do was all about huge buns with chopsticks and plastic flowers which added to the whole mood, not to forget the dark-glow neon-orange nailpaint and the orange eye  make-up. She was sucessful in constructing a modern look with oriental essence. The dominating padded and stiff shoulders presented  a bold, strong, confident yet feminine persona.
