Sabyasachi brings urban & rural glamour on LFW F/W ramp

When Sabyasachi Mukherjee presents a collection it has to weave around the beauty of India and its textiles. Therefore it was little wonder that his mix of urban and rural inspired creations titled “Neela aur Bagardandi ki Kahani” – which means “indigo and burgundy story” in English was the highlight of the first day at Lakme Fashion Week for Fall/Winter 2009.

Adding his characteristics touches, Sabyasachi's silhouettes were a mix of the contemporary with the rustic. Introducing an interesting version of the sari, Sabyasachi added the small or 'chottu sari' which is woven to calf length and would prove very comfortable for the many international ladies who dream of draping this traditional Indian garment. The pleats were given multiple fabric insets with net petticoats peeping under them. The colours moved according to the theme in beautiful rustic prints.

Going short again for another traditional garment, Sabyasachi cropped the salwar to end it at the knees teamed with Khadi Tees and Pushak gilets which were also often worn with sheer net sharara pants for a sexy touch.

Sabyasachi also introduced the Vizer dupatta in net reminiscent of the lambadi odhana which covered the head to flow down gracefully at the side; while the traditional kanjari was given a modern twist with layered side drapes.

For the coming season the designer threw in some long lean button less coats with narrow roll lapels worn over layers of tunics, skirts, and waistcoats.

The fabric selection by Sabyasachi moved through several states of India as he traveled creatively from Bengal, Bihar, and Andhra Pradesh to Madhya Pradesh and finally Orissa. Using the weaves of these states for the collection, there was a mix of cotton which was used for the majority of the garments, while khadi came a close second and finally the look was touched with tulle and silk.

Sabyasachi Mukherjee scored a Perfect 10 with a brilliant collection of mix and match garments which could go a long way in enhancing a woman's wardrobe through many seasons.
