Sabyasachi presents Afro/Parisian collection
Mar '10
Samira resorts presented Sabyasachi Mukherjee's exciting global fashion tour at Lakmé Fashion Week summer/resort 2010. The venue was lit with tiny fairy light streamers from the ceiling as Samira Resorts presented one of the most exciting shows of day one by Sabyasachi Mukherjee.

From the colours of Africa with inspirations drawn from Sudan and Ghana for an African look, then onto the American underground years of the 70s and finally a visit to Paris of the 1920s; Sabyasachi took the audience on a grand global fashion journey at Lakmé Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2010.

Presenting a practical easy to wear mix and match look the designer gave fashion an ethnic yet contemporary touch bringing back some old favourites of the past like elasticized skirts and long line Tees. The stunning hues of the African continent, the American inspirations and the Parisian touches came together effortlessly in the whole collection which was a feast of fabrics, patterns, embellishments and simple elegant silhouettes. The colour story was muted with shades of ivory, brown, teal, rust, and indigo, with touches of orange and large doses of gold and silver embroidery.

Separates like trench coats, wrap jackets, loose pants, tight churidars, sexy Charleston dresses over printed trousers, shimmering long tubes, printed tunics, asymmetric waistcoats, sheer skirts lavishly embellished with beads and glitter, blouses with multi prints all over; were cleverly put together by Sabyasachi in the most creative manner that only he is capable of.

Models emerged with trousers, skirts, blouses, jackets and scarves all in one entry which all came together seamlessly. The shapes were lean and long with tubes and extended tees in a mix of fabrics like chiffon, georgette, khadi, cotton, lace and silk which was a harmonious blend of textures - very often in a single garment.

Beaded jewellery and tasseled scarves printed wedge heel slip-ons, added to the beauty of the collection, while the bandana wrapped heads of the models gave an Afro/Parisian look to the collection. With so diverse a fashion story from formal to casual wear, Sabyasachi Mukherjee proved that he is the master of any genre of fashion which will cater to his loyal admirers' needs.
