SABYASACHI’S ‘CHARBAGH’ COLLECTION IS AN ODE TO THE WINTER BRIDE

Fashion

From the modern zardozi to the authentic red lehengas, this collection will make all the non-brides cringe for not getting married this year

Sabyasachi is not just a designer, he is an institution and amongst the very few designers who have celebrated the Indian aesthetic through his creations. A ‘Sabyasachi bride’ is just not any bride, she is a strong and independent woman who favours design over trend, quality over quantity. No wonder then our Bollywood celebs have been his loyal clientele! From Anushka Sharma to Deepika Padukone, Sabya’s craft has mesmerised one and all. Therefore, when the prodigy designer dropped a bomb announcing his new winter bridal collection – Charbagh, we were all eyes. Swathed in intricacy and brilliant craftsmanship, the Charbagh collection features four different lines that cater to a different aesthetic, specifically targeted to a ‘certain’ kind of bride. While Chowk is for those who love mixing edgy with traditional, Devi is for those brides who cannot part with the signature red lehenga. Here’s an insight into the gorgeous collection.

Devi

According to Sabyasachi, “As I travel more and more through the interiors of India, it never ceases to amaze me how rooted these textiles are. Something that comes out of an untrained eye becomes very modern because it is not affected by modernity”, he told in an interview to Vogue India magazine. Perhaps that is what ‘Devi’ stands for! It is a celebration of culture, the colour red, and everything in between. It is a collection intertwined with power, energy and is an ode to those innumerable brides who cannot part with a red lehenga on their wedding day.

Chowk

Expect lots of low cut blouses and a-line lehengas, which may or may not be everyone’s cup of tea. It is one collection that is seeped deep in repetitiveness and a bit of experimentation. Everything from the prints to the jacket style blouses is a homage to the rural folks who are independent and have fierce sexuality that comes across in their choice of clothes. If you are a bride who wants to wear her heart on sleeves and has a bit of a rebellious streak in her choices (quite literally) then you should seriously consider this collection.

Nargis

Nargis features pastel hues and embellishments with a twist. There are lehengas in ivory, yellow, floral, and even a gorgeous peacock green one which would equally suit a summer bride too. The collection is an ode to a ‘wild overgrown garden’ with a haunting fragrance of flowers and many untold memories. If you are looking for a pastel hue that is perfect for a destination wedding or even a beach one, then this collection would be perfect.

Isfahan

The mood behind this line accounts for the fact that Sabyasachi has himself reimagined how he would dress royals in the current era. From contrasting dusty colours like browns to glossy satin and rich velvets to embracing his love for zardozi work, Isfahan as Sabya points is a “combination of velvets, organzas, muslins and mulmul, and I wanted to revive them.” The collection is highly inspired by Mughal-inspired motifs and is perfect for the bride who wants to look nothing short of royalty on her D-day.
