I am not a Fashion Blogger by any means but I love following trends, styles, fashion shows, latest collections etc. and who doesn’t? It makes me just one among the many many women out there who appreciate beautiful things and pick on the trends they actually do like! Not for the sake of Fashion Blogging or Style Updates but because they genuinely resonate with a particular idea or trend and want to rock it on themselves.
And yesterday when I saw this post on Sabyasachis Insta page I could immediately connect with the concept he brought on the ramp with his “Frog Princess” collection in 2004. While to some it might sound something to merely grab eyeballs cause of the “good girl gone bad” theme, I would disagree. To me, the distortion of the usual pretty model image although a bit too extreme but was still relatable.
Also, “The Nair Sisters” where the models rocked librarian glasses and books in hands under oversized shirts and layers and layers of fabrics is something really fun. From chiffon and satin to handprints and block prints his collections have it all. “A woman is best expressed in a man’s clothes. I think there is something very sexy about women wearing an oversized masculine shirt,” Sabyasachi.
Sabyasachi’s design philosophy is very simple and clear ‘Personalized imperfection of the human hand.’ His constant inspiration is his hometown Kolkata, he is never afraid to experiment with the fusion of different fabric styles, embroideries, textures, embellishments, patchworks. You will find diverse, vibrant colors spread across his outfits in beautiful juxtapositions. And his wedding ensembles are the classic examples of, “Go big or Go home”. The stir he has created last wedding season from lehengas to sarees to dresses everything was just WOW! The man pulled off so many weddings and every dress was so much unique and beautiful and different than the other.
“I think real fashion is all about layering when you are able to mix and match things rather than rely on what the designer tells you to wear,” he said. And this I totally agree with. So many trends come and go every year and only a few find a way to your closet and your lifestyle. I don’t have a personal favorite designer per se but his collections always keep me longing for more.
