Malaika Arora was recently announced as the new face for Satya Paul‘s Autumn-Winter 2016 collection. Titled Star Struck, this collection is divided into 3 looks- The Constellation, Zodiac Traits and Elements Of The Zodiac. The idea behind was to revive traditional weaves and techniques in a more contemporary context that could be relatable to today’s women. Using Benarasi weaves and Japanese shibori prints among other things, they get their point across beautifully. Obviously, you can’t really go wrong with a Satya Paul sari but this elemental collection is even more special. The prints are inspired by nature and the cosmos and it uses a mix of shibori and digital screen printing on minimal easy silhouettes that are fashioned from light, breezy fabrics. Blends of georgettes satins, silks crepe de chine and Chanderi along with a bespoke range of Benarasi silks make for a perfect Autumnal collection.
What’s more, is that MissMalini got a hold of some exclusive behind the scenes images of the beautiful Malaika in action. Check it out here:
What a stunner! We love this so much! Maybe I can get my hands on a Gemini sari to add to my collection. What say?
