One of the most well-liked designers in the nation is without a doubt Sabyasachi Mukherjee. Both worldwide figures and Bollywood celebs extol the virtues of his excellent inventions. His name has come to represent Indian bridal fashion over time. His own brand’s lehengas and saris exude a classic, timeless charm.
It’s understandable why the most prominent brides—think Anushka Sharma, Deepika Padukone, Priyanka Chopra, and Alia Bhatt—opted for his regal ensembles for their respective nuptials. Currently, the photoshoot for the designer’s new collection is the thing causing a buzz online.
On Instagram, Sabyasachi recently debuted his newest line. There are numerous images of the new designs on his label’s official social media page.
Men with jewellery, purses and women’s dupattas. What's up with Sabhyasachi Men's collection? pic.twitter.com/iljHxYejd2— The Poll Lady (@ThePollLady) February 13, 2023
Models wearing red lehengas with golden accents are featured in the collection, which displays traditional aesthetics.
Men can be seen in some photos wearing vibrant red sherwanis, traditional dupattas (stoles), and substantial jewellery. The Poll Lady, a verified Twitter user, tweeted that the males in the photo session could also be seen toting purses and sling bags while posing in traditional clothing.
Internet users seemed to have differing opinions on the images. While some people praised the “ostentatious” fashion seen in the images, others found the inclusion of purses to be offensive.
“Except for the handbags, the rest of the designs are rather simple. I’m not sure what the issue is. Even though North Indian/Punjabi wedding designs are typically somewhat showy, this one is simple, according to a tweet about the subject.
Another one said, “Everything is OK but the purse.” A Twitter user commented, “Okay maybe the purse is an overkill but the rest looks totally good.”
Here are a few more responses:
Barring the purses, rest or the designs are fairly minimal. Dunno what's the gripe?— Karthik Kumar (@darklordkk) February 13, 2023
Wedding styles in North Indian/Punjabi is fairly ostentatious anyway, but even then this is minimalist.
Ostentatious male finery (garments, jewellery, the likes) should not be such a surprise to Indians. A very common thing with our royalty.— Pratyasha Rath (@pratyasharath) February 14, 2023
It’s the same in many cultures. https://t.co/iFDS1smtKo
Everything is fine but the purse— sanjuktaroyvaidya संयुक्ता राय वैद्या (@sanjuktaroyvai1) February 13, 2023
Jewelry and Stole are fine. Most grooms in Hindu weddings invariably use those accessories. But these purses are beyond science.— Ruchir Radha Modi 🇮🇳 (@Ruchir2805) February 13, 2023
Ok so nothing wrong in the jewellery part since traditionally it’s been worn from ancient times as a culture. I agree the Bag is a bit of an overkill..— Cauvery (@ItsCauvery) February 14, 2023
