The Gorgeous Must Have Sabyasachi Mukherjee Collection

Ok Mr Mukherjee, you have a convert. I admired your collections with a measured restraint, but the latest instalment has me converted to a hardcode Sabyasachi Mukherjee fan. Curious why? Read on.

Sabyasachi dropped the latest collection via Instagram – a beautiful collection that was shot in Rajasthan. The backdrop provided the perfect setting for the even more stunning clothes. There is a certain trademark style to Sabyasachi and this was evident in the collection. However, there is also a change in style from the “traditional” Sabyasachi style.

There is an even greater degree of sophistication in this collection and there seem to be a bolder use of colours. The floral inspiration and the cuts remain very similar to the trademark Sabya style. What has particularly caught my attention this time around is the range of the collection. You have vibrant colours, muted classic colours, prints – what more could you want!! But lets break down some of my favourite pieces from the collection by theme.

First there was detail







I love the fact that the details on each of the garments – Lehengas, Sherwanis – are so delicately executed. Usually you see similar motifs all over a designers’ collection, but as you see from these pictures, the motifs are very diverse and range from the traditional mango motify to the gorgeous floral inspired motifs.

Then there was colour






Of course Indian Wedding clothes have a lot of colour and panache, but the choice of colours here is what I love. The range of colours is unusual in my opinion – green sherwanis for example. I especially love the bright reds for both girls and men – the tone and shade of the reds is particularly interesting for me. It is bold and powerful – it make a statement and certainly creates presence.

Then there are the more usual-unusual colours like Teal, Orange, etc. These are great, but I have seen them used in the past, so these are not so unique for me. However, the combinations are again very different and worthy of second looks. The sherwani in the first picture that has chevron patterns in multiple colours – a very unique use of red.

And finally there was Print





Sabyasachi and floral prints are almost synonymous, so you’d expect to see a host of printed styles in the collection. And this one does not disappoint. I particularly like the water-colour finish to the florals, they look absolutely fantastic. And such a refreshing change from the OTT embroidered styles. These are perfect for a very classic look that can be styled so easily for a number of events.

Here are some more simply gorgeous pictures from the collection….  16906820_347516832310099_556306605382041600_n




Girls, you just have to include this in your shopping list. You really cannot have a wedding without Sabya. That’s my latest mantra!

Finally! Vijay weds Amala Paul!

director Vijay and Actress Amala Paul


Actress Amala Paul, who is set to marry Tamil filmmaker Vijayon June 12, has roped in two of the country’s well known designers Anita Dongre and Sabyasachi Mukherjee to design her wedding outfits.

While Indian’s famous Fashion designer Anita Dongre will design Amala Paul’s engagement gown, the bride’s wedding reception outfit will be a creation by Mukherjee.

“For the ring engagement ceremony on June 7 in Kochi, Amala Paul will be seen in Anita Dongre’s white gown. It has been specially ordered for the occasion. On the same evening, she will be seen in a traditional lehenga,” a close friend of the family said.

“For the wedding, which is on June 12, Amala Paul will be draped in a Kanchivaram sari and later in the evening during the reception party, she will slip into Sabyasachi’s creation and wear a specially ordered diamond necklace to go with it,” the friend added.

The engagement ceremony is expected to be attended only by the couple’s close knit family, whereas the wedding and reception will be graced by special guests from the southern film industry.

In 2011, Amala Paul and Vijay fell in love on the sets of Tamil drama Deiva Thirumagal, directed by the latter. Since then they have been dating each other.

Finally, after such a long love story takes a new turn . Vijay weds Amala Paul.
