Satya Paul showcased its collection at the Wills Lifestyle Fashion Week , Masaba finally made her debut as creative director.
“I’ve been working on this show since late last year. Like pieces from my own label, this collection comes with a little part of me. But Satya Paul is a legacy that dates back to 30 years.’she says.
Sanctity of the Sari
Ask a woman of her mother’s generation and she will tell you she treasures her Satya Paul like fine-wine. And so it is the younger generation that Masaba is vying for. “As a nation, we’re obsessed with gowns. Most young women from urban backgrounds think of the sari as strictly occasional wear. And that is something I wish to change with this prêt collection. Of course, Satya Paul is synonymous with a whole range of silhouettes. So I’ve mixed things up a bit with tunics and dresses,” she said.
As the collection revealed itself yesterday, the lipstick took centrestage. Phone booths and ink stains adorned the rest of the collection. Peter pan collared blouses accompanied the saree as shifts, A-line dresses and midis made an appearance. Suspenders formed the key accessory for an ensemble that combined the maxi skirt with a cropped top. Another element of surprise came in the form of lipstick print vanity kits. “In order to make the collection youth-friendly, it is necessary to quirk things up a little,” she said.
