No one quite plays with textures, colors and prints like he does, and this master craftsman has us gush, season after season. The khadi color-block dress, the peasant blouse and the floral dress were my absolute favorite (follow the arrow!)… I need to have ’em now. I must. Okay so now that, that’s out of the system…
Sabyasachi’s collection was inspired by the Save The Tiger project. Using his Bengali aesthetic and crafts of the region in a stellar manner, Mr. Mukherjee put forth a collection that was fresh, contemporary and still had his signature kitsch appeal.
The show started off with yellow and black toned ensembles (channeling the colors of the Tiger?) and then progressively moving on to other colors. According to the press note, the presented collection moved through various decades of fashion- the fun and freedom of the 20s, elegance of the 30s and 40s, 70s boho chic and the 80s daring arresting bras.
Loved the use of khadi and handloom fabrics and the use of earthy tones along with the brighter hues. Florals were just brilliant and we must absolutely get our hands on that bright printed sack gown. Oh but wait, I already said that! :)
