Inspired from childhood memories, Sabyasachi Mukherjee quotes
I was eleven years old when I went to see the Gemini Circus. The trapeze artists, the tigers, the galloping horses and even the clown is just a blur in my memory. But I can still smell the turmeric popcorn and I distinctly remember the marquee. It was massive, sprawling across the entire maidan in striped canvas. Red and green. Colourful festoons and fairy lights in every shade of bright, danced and glittered under an evening sky. The thought never left me and I knew one day, it would surface up as an inspiration for one of my collections.
In the stunning photos featured here, are women in variety of hand and printed embroidered silk matka lenghas collocated with floral embroidered blouses in hyper-contrast. The strong graphic look is rain-washed with fluttery organza dupattas in whimsical colours. Wear your hair loose with strong glares, ethnic chandbalis and a multitude of glass bangles for an playful ‘street-couture’ style.
