With a grand old world setting and a whiff of aroma in the air, details such as empty glass bottles against ornate mirror frames added to the old world charm of the designer’s 1920’s inspired collection.
Speaking with media Sabyasachi said “It took me around two and half months to do the collection. I am very inspired by the 1920’s era. I did not require to do any real research. It was easy as in my mind I belong to that period. Hence I decided to show it through this collection”.

“The collection had a variety of silhouettes besides my favourite sarees. I was particularly fond of my men’s wear because I thought it was very chic and nice,” Sabyasachi said.
The designer also used vintage jewellery to complete the look.”I used vintage jewellery from a jeweller in Hyderabad. There was personal pieces, old antique pieces, there was a lot of collectibles from the 1800-1900. It was a collection put
together by them. I just wanted to make the collection very lavish and personal,” he said.
