Red is not just a colour, but an emotion that is deeply ingrained in Indian weddings. It is a celebration without which no Indian wedding can ever be considered complete. And who better than every bride’s dream designer, Sabyasachi Mukherjee, could describe this emotion better? Sabyasachi’s latest collection is all about this hue every bit of which testifies the richness of Indian heritage.

Speaking of his love for the colour red, the designer writes on his Instagram handle:
At Sabyasachi, we celebrate the colour red. If there was a definitive colour that defined the brand, it would be red. Not just any shade, but what has now come to pass in the trade as ‘Sabyasachi red.’
He further adds:
The heartland of India wears red bridal sarees. They are either Benarasis or the distinct aari-taari sarees with gota or zardosi borders. For me, these sarees are “chicken soup for the soul.” Every time I see one of them, they represent a certain timelessness and a sense of assurance that all is well. Perhaps, these are old familiar tales that we need to cling to in desperation in an ever-changing world to find our way back home.
At Sabyasachi, these are the textile and design stories that we love to celebrate. Not as designers or revivalists, but as restoration artists. Because in our confused modern world, a lot of us need a little bit of hand-holding, a little sign from popular culture that restores our faith in our own identities.
Having said that, here we bring you the beautiful collection of Sabyasachi Mukherjee:
