Latest from Wendell Roderics! I have no idea what to say about his saree designs lately; actually I do know what to say, it’s just that my mom told me to not say anything if I don’t have anything good to say!

Satya Paul whimsical saree

Good to see Satya Paul whimsical saree out of the ramp and on to the wild.

It is neat, and it makes a statement; sometime the only statement it makes is that it is a satya paul design, but for some that is a meaningful and loud statement.

The unique prints and bright colors are further enhanced by intricate embroidery and the use of soft, summery fabrics – from Satya Paul specifically for Samsaara Boutique.

I really like the Samsaara concept; have a place where several of the top designers can show their offerings at the same time. Unlike some Bollywood movie stars (Kareena comes to mind), people are not wed to a particular designer, they may have a favorite and one designer might be able to capture their personality better than other, but people are open to exploring works of other designers. Multi-brand boutique Samsaara plans to launch the spring-summer collections from leading Indian designers Tarun Tahiliani, Surily Goel, Monisha Jaising, Seema Khan and Rocky S, along with some of their own stuff from Satya Paul, Tie-Bar and Gehani.

If you do not know, Satya Paul and Samsaara Boutiques are owned by the same company, Genesis Colors.

I know of no saree that doesn’t have some level of ethnic design infused in it; sometimes it shows up in the print, sometimes it shows up in the the blouse design, sometimes it shows up in the embelishments and sometimes it shows up in the drape.

But when the saree is designed with ethnic motif in mind, it is a different ball game. You want to import just enough to give it traditional overtone – too little, and it looks like a mish-mash, too much and lit looks like a hotch-potch.

Here are two examples from January 2008 Ethnic Ensemble Show.

sabayaschi mukherjee sarees are always distinctive; I am not saying that they are always the most glamourous or most attractive, but he does infuse the saree with a tectile dimension that I find refreshing.

Here is another one from his collection

His designs always at the edge of the accepted traditional way of using the fabric and texture.
