Sarah & Sandeep introduce first Couture bridal collection for ‘Power Brides’
Luxury designer label Sarah & Sandeep has announced the launch of its Summer Festive 21 collection ‘Equivalence’ with contemporary styles for both bride and grooms. The line depicts the change in the distribution of power amongst men and women not only in the workplace but also when it comes to Indian family dynamics.
Over a period of 9 years, Sarah & Sandeep has evolved into one of the leading innovators in design for men’s formal clothing. The brand has maintained a level of allure and ensured that the primary themes of the fashion statement for their elite clientele are Power and Structure. With ‘Equivalence’, the designers have attempted to introduce concept couture bridal styles as a reflection of their previous menswear collections.
So who is a Sarah & Sandeep ‘Power Bride’? The design has been meticulously imagined for a contemporary Indian bride with a clear understanding of her vision and her goals. They introduce contemporary brides to their signature concept pieces like the Couture Bridal Power Suit, The Power Lehenga, The Bandhgala Saree & The Palazzo Power Lehenga. The Power Lehengas handcrafted for this collection encompasses design details like embroidered panels, blouses with suit lapels, statement pleated drapes and a truly signature Sarah & Sandeep bridal look - a full sleeve bandhgala blouse paired with a lehenga with geometric hand worked artistry.
With ‘Equivalence’, Sarah & Sandeep have re-imagined menswear classics like Tuxedos not only for grooms, but also for brides looking to elevate their style quotient with the Sarah & Sandeep Couture Bridal Suits and Tuxedos. A concept ensemble that beautifully represents this new design approach is a white fully embroidered Off-Shoulder Double Breasted Tuxedo styled with precision using a veil as Sarah & Sandeep attempt to break the norms of what can pass off as an Indian bridal look.
With bolder structured looks for menswear, the styles for grooms are flawless and have an essence of their own. From Bandhgalas with fabric manipulation to Kurta Bandi Sets with Pleats on the hem, each style is a true representation of the evolution of Sarah & Sandeep as contemporary designers with a thorough understanding of silhouettes and precision craftsmanship.
Commenting on their first-of-a-kind venture, Sarah & Sandeep state, “For the longest time, we have been getting requests to do festive and ceremonial outfits for women that are as structured and impactful as our menswear designs. We decided that instead of recreating the women’s styles as per traditional design norms, we would just translate the menswear styles for the growing number of contemporary couture brides looking to challenge the status quo.”
