In a recent bridal masterclass video that Sabyasachi Mukherjee did with Vogue India, the designer talked about brides needing a “visual edit” to bring the focus back to the bride rather than distract with over embellished lehengas, big hair and bling-y jewelry that according to the designer, made brides look like “a really bad Christmas tree.”
This season the designer is offering a palette cleanser for what he partly blames himself for creating – the mix and match contrast style that once defined the quintessential “Sabya” look. Now, it’s all about monochromatic colors and understated elegance. Color was clearly not the star of this collection which was earthy and muted but beautifully showcased the kantha, zardozi, and chikankari embroidery work and jeweled embellishments on the garments. Our favorite pieces from the collection were the long coats over full skirts, cinched at the waist with belts, which looked like a lehenga/gown hybrid. For someone who is so rooted in Indian craft and textiles, these pieces had a decidedly European flair but still felt authentic to the Sabyasachi aesthetic. We definitely like where the designer is heading in his creative journey but take a look at his collection below and let us know what you think!
