I have talked about his new collection with clean lines.
Looking forward to seeing what he has in store for us. I am tired of seeing the same triple border.

I thought he was moving towards simplicity!
I like the super ornate neckpiece, but the above sarees don’t excite me as much.
I find the flower print way too busy and not flattering either. If this saree wasn’t worn with the neckpiece, would it still look notable? I doubt it.
This looks like a saree from the same collection. I see the Sabyasachi signature borders here, but this reminds me of the 70s.
Talking about his collection, Sabya says, “My collection this time is based on the North West Frontier Province. It is what girls in Patiala wear while going to schools.
I am also surprised at the blouse design for these sarees
I would have picked a different color for the blouse and perhaps a tad more coordination with the saree.

He is the master of layering. By adding a bright color layer to classic color, it has uplifted the lahenga. It is eclectic, it is fun and it is distinctive.
The line was a little more structured and probably not the most suited for sarees, but I liked the overall designs. My fav was the corset lahenga
The collection is inspired by retro Spanish films with a look that is very modern and rock.
The ramp was transformed into a vintage set reminiscent of an old British library. Set against a backdrop of life-sized iconic fashion bibles, the all black wooden ramp was bedecked with flamboyant colourful bulbs. The finale opened with a stellar performance by famous performer Kiya from London and Vidya walking with the designer.
Mukherjee’s collection was inspired by paintings of three of his favourite artists – Henri Matisse, Pablo Picasso and Paul Gauguin.
‘The collection was inspired from the 1960s and 1970s style in the international market. The silhouettes were sports meets retro-rock on a colour palate which varies from black and white with a mix of super bright colours as well. But the entire range used Indian handicrafts fabrics like textured khadi, a little bit of zardozi, beaten and burnt crystals and lace,’ said Mukherjee after the show.
The collection was high on functionality with models sporting the retro-meets- contemporary look. The garments which grabbed eyeballs were modern versions of the flared 1950’s skirts with sporty elastic that made them fuss free and floor-touching dresses.

At the blossom Ball at the NY Public Library. Endometriosis foundation of America’s 3rd Annual blossom Ball was hosted by Padma Lakshmi and Susan Sarandon.
The EFA is a non-profit organization focused on fighting against Endometriosis, a devastating disease affecting 176M women and girls worldwide. Co-Founded by Padma Lakshmi & Tamer Seckin, MD.
Endometriosis affects an estimated 176 million worldwide, and there is no absolute cure. Through increased awareness, education, research and legislative advocacy, the EFA is committed to improving affected individuals’ lives by early detection and treatment as well as actively leading the way towards early intervention, timely diagnosis, more effective treatments and ultimately, a cure. I encourage you to join the effort.
I want to say that Padma looks absolutely stunning in the saree, but I can’t. May be a little more glamorous blouse and a bit lower drape might have raised the glamour factor a notch. She looks better in the picture below.

You can sort of see the design thread running between the saree. It has motifs from traditional Indian design and has the sprinkling of modern touch – classic Sabyasachi.
