SABYASACHI MUKHERJEE OPENS LAKME FASHION WEEK SPRING/SUMMER 2015 WITH RESORT WEAR

For the jet setting trendy fashion followers around the world Sabyasachi Mukherjee’s Resort 2015 collection “Big Love” was one of the most amazing openings ever seen for a fashion event in India. The show definitely set new fashion directions on how to dress when the mercury sours and the sun shines brightly. The venue was unconventional – the fabulous rustic grounds of Richardson and Cruddas Mills in the heart of Mumbai. The ramp was a never ending 200 x 20 feet, with high-tech multi laser lights, roving drone and camera mounted on gantry. There were 62 models and 105 outfits for the evening.

He started with a lot of blacks, reds and shimmery colours and I wondered how that fits into the Spring/Summer genre. Then I realised that the fabric was light and the embroidery minimal so that evening fashion can look glamorous. Of course, a fashionista would like to have some bling moments in the summer evening.

There were pre-stitched draped saris, toga gowns, with shimmering hemlines, saris with net extensions and jumpsuits with sheer net capes.  Gradually moving into a colour story of brown, grey and beige, there were bell bottom jumpsuits or palazzos, long maxi shirt waister, layered capes, column dresses, boleros, gilets, a flash of red for the lining of a floor kissing cape and sari gowns that continued to mesmerise the fashion lovers. The colours soon moved to pastel and pretty shades of pale sea green making a great seaside choice for lazy lounging. At times the dual printed palazzos were interesting with shimmering cropped tops; or the dhoti pants teamed with bralet and waistcoat.

The pale pink and blue floral print collection appeared for flared floor skimming belted skirts worn with broad horizontal striped cholis; while the final formal wear visual drama revolved around glittering red gowns, kurtas, lehengas and cholis.

Adding to the flavour of the collection, Sabyasachi had designed matching wedges, embroidered slip-ons, colourful moccasins, monk sandals, messenger and handbags that were in dual sling or shoulder styles to complement the garments. But I loved the slim waist belts with a metallic panther motif on it.

Over all the event was high octane with many celeb attendance like Deepika Padukone, Rani Mukherkee, Kiran Rao, Farhan Akhtar, Adhuna Akhtar to name a few. Sabyasachi made a grand opening at the Lakme Fashion Week and has set high example for others to follow.
