One thing that I love about Sabyasachi Mukherjee is how he’s a people’s designer thanks to social media. Even though only a certain stratum of society might actually be able to afford and wear his designs, the fact that he releases all of his creations so openly on his Instagram page makes everyone fall in love with ’em at first sight. His Instagram feed serves as enough inspiration for brides-to-be across India, and even internationally now. Just last night he dropped a new collection called Kesribai Pannalal and like always, I was hooked on to my phone. One after another, he revealed stunning designs for both brides and grooms. Keep scrolling to see a few of my favorites:

1. Sharara-Sharara

The sharara was such a refreshing shift from all the lehengas I usually see on Sabyasachi’s feed. And the fact that it was in a gorgeous shade of red—It looked even more stunning. PS: How could I not sing this song after seeing the outfit?

Old wedding pictures from Punjab fascinate me. I have many images of Anand Karaj ceremonies that I have collected over the years. They have come from Daulatpur, Hoshiarpur, Amritsar, Moga, Bhatinda, Patiala, Phagwara, Ludhiana, Jalandhar, Pathankot and many more cities and districts. What is common to them is the quiet dignity, serenity and the wonderful visual language of cultural clothing. It is heartwarming, powerful, and has a strange, unsettling sense of contemporary nostalgia. These are timeless, traditional clothing. You cannot tamper with them. Only present them again, unaltered, to a modern audience. In this context I want to add something- today I do not see myself only as a designer; but also a ferryman between the past and the present.

2. All In The Details

This time around, the menswear had such gripping details as well. Especially this fully embroidered sherwani paired with a printed chudidaar.

This winter, our Curiosity, Art and Antiquity Project introduces the ‘Pashmina’ sherwani. Antique shawls from the Sabyasachi textile archives have been deconstructed and reconstructed to create one of a kind bridal sherwanis for textile connoisseurs. The gentleman wears a 'Pashmina' sherwani constructed out of a heritage Kashmiri shawl. Hand-printed silk kota dupatta, block printed khadi churidars, multiple layers of tourmaline and sapphire beads are the strong signature accessories to this look.

3. Floral All The Way

When it comes to Indian bridal wear, is there really a thing such as too many flowers? I don’t think so and this lehenga is proof of that.

4. Quilted Wonder

Even though this particular sherwani is a solid shade of blue, the details on the buttons and border of the shawl lend enough of a regal vibe.

5. Bedazzled Lehenga

When I saw this particular lehenga, all I could think of is how it’s literally jewellery on a billowy body. The OTT-ness of it makes it the ideal choice for an opulent bride.

6. Twirls For The Boys

Why leave the twirls only for the girls? (Hey, that rhymed!) This fully flared angrakha is such a fresh new way for modern Indian grooms to take on for this season’s weddings.

7. Multi-Fabric Monochrome

One of my favorite techniques in Sabyasachi‘s creations is how he uses multiple fabrics and weaves in one garment. This one in particular completely caught my attention and I. Am. In. Love.

8. Regal Emeralds

This shade of green will never, never be outdated and Sabyasachi knows it. The detailed kalis on the lehenga of this regal shade of green is one I cannot wait to see on a real bride.

9. White On White

White isn’t a common colour that’s worn at Indian weddings but I’m hoping after seeing this beautiful creation, a few brides will actually try this out for their big fat Indian wedding celebration. The best part about it is how the colourful work on the lehenga takes your attention away from its white base.

Memories of another day… Elaborately hand-painted lehengas by The Sabyasachi Art Foundation are intricately embroidered with silk-floss, beaten gold and silver thread, badla and bullion and encrusted with semi-precious stones and pearls. In order to preserve the highest standards of craftsmanship, some of these bridal ensembles take over 3400 man-hours to finish. When placed in the context of contemporary life, they easily qualify as modern heirlooms. Jewellery Courtesy: Sabyasachi Heritage Jewelry Collection.

10. Pick The Mint

Correct me if I’m wrong but grooms nowadays are widely seen in shades of ivory, gold, white or maroon. But this mint sherwani is such a refreshing change, don’t you think?
