For those living under a rock, here’s a little something from the designer himself:
Sabyasachi credits old cinema as an inspiration for coming up with evening wear design. ‘Whenever I have to design evening wear, I take refuge in old cinema. The 20s, the 40s and the 50s have been eras that I constantly revisit,’ he shared.
He further explained what is amiss in modern clothes. Mukherjee continued, “My evening wear is not steeped in nostalgia, I am just an admirer of sensibilities that happen to be old-world. Clothing at that point of time was just beautifully made: romantic and feminine. And when I look at clothes of today, that is something that I miss. I guess I will always look at impossible glamour through an old-world eye.”
