This weekend was a whirlwind for us because, honestly, we were (still are) mesmerised by the stellar showcase that Sabyasachi Mukherjee hosted on Saturday to celebrate the completion of 20 years in the industry. We were still going through all the runway images on repeat when Alia Bhatt surprised us with an off-the-runway look.
Kalank promotions are in full swing, and we’ve been on a lookout for the cast’s desi ensembles. But then we were particularly fascinated by Alia’s outfit only because we instantly knew that it was from Sabyasachi’s latest collection, Kashgaar Bazaar that was showcased just a day before. It was a genius move by celebrity stylist Ami Patel, indeed.
The co-ord set from the collection depicted the essence of his design aesthetic perfectly. What looked like polka dots from far away, turned out to be an all-over exquisite bandhani work. The precision of the handwork was so on point that it gave an illusion of polka dots. Isn’t that commendable? The one off-shoulder top made it a quintessential summer silhouette with the billowy sleeves, whereas the skirt lehenga brought the indigenous feels. The only break between the bandhani work of the two separates was the signature belt from Sabyasachi. Even the gorgeous chandbali earnings that went very well with the boho-chic look were from the designer label.
Alia definitely looked gorgeous in this Sabya ensemble but it seems like the rest of the cast too had red on their mind. The lineup definitely reminded us of the teaser launch of Kalank. Here’s how others donned their regal reds:
What do you think of this lineup of red? Also, tell us in the comments below what did you think of Alia’s straight-off-the-runway look from Sabyasachi.
