Sabyasachi Amazon India Couture Collection

The man who needs no introduction, Sabyasachi Mukherjee recently showcased a fashion week opening couture collection at the Amazon India Couture Week. With much hype on his regular runway showcases, this one too was anticipated to be a Bollywood drama, with regal elements of royalty. However, the anticipation saw a flip-side since this Bengal designer presented a collection that was constructed with deep hues of goth drama and was accompanied with luxury accessories by Christian Louboutin. Theme : BATER Couture 2015 Exaggerating the shades of black, Sabyasachi’s collection saw major hues of neutral tones contrasted with bright hues of cocktail red and ivory pink shades. We absolutely loved the heavy usage of fringe cuts on some of his designs, Karchobi style embroidery and his take on sheer trend. While most his silhouettes were concentrated on longer silhouettes, the compact cigarette silhouette trousers and well-fitted embellished bustier too stole the show away. The Christian Louboutin red sole heels were given an Indian embroidery makeover and the addition of spiked goth-style head-bands turned out to be the top wish-list contender. Not to forget his amalgamation of delicate embroidery with goth spiked embellishments on hand clutches, that totally changed the game. Take a look at our PHOTO DIARY that summarizes it all! Style Spotting While we were at it, thought of capturing some of our favourite fashionistas at the couture week. Take a look! Follow Sanyam Bajaj Photography
