Something for all

Themes as varied as ‘Splash Basics’, ‘Splash Youth’, ‘Splash Smart’ and the newly-launched ‘Splash Characters’ have helped garner attention to Splash’s ‘Spring-Summer 2016’ collection.

   The collection comprises casual, formal and semi-formal outfits that are chic and stylish. It is inspired by skate culture and contemporary designs. With the use of 80s prints, it helps bring alive the retro look.

    The range for men is a medley of mono-coloured shirts, long T-shirts with quirky conversation prints and half-sleeved hoodies in loose fit fabrics and jogger coordinates.
The brand’s spokesperson says, “The vibrant and new summer collection from Splash will definitely revamp one’s wardrobe and make them ready for summer. The collection captures outfits and styles for all moods and occasions for the young — from casual weekend wear, everyday casuals, work wear, smart casuals and formal evening dresses.”
The collection for women displays an elaborate corporate and evening wear. The range includes lace and panel details and oversized geometrical prints in light fabrics.

     It also ensures a feminine appeal with a selection of creatively designed dresses and skirts that have interesting asymmetrical details.

    The smart essentials include dresses, maxis, long shrugs, contrasting collared jackets and long skirts.

    For men, there are an array of options from polka dot shirts, chequered shirts, blazers, printed polo T-shirts to mandarin and paisley  shirts.
