Charu & Vasundhara, SAIRA
The powerhouse Charu & Vasundhara present to you Saira, their latest collection that celebrates vintage glamour. Saira is an ode to a vision of a “modern maharani”, where contemporary silhouettes meet royalty. The collection is intriguing and paradoxical, as Charu & Vasundhara amalgamate the essence of spring with rich, bold and luxurious elements.
While one tends to focus on the beauty of a Maharani, Charu & Vasundhara are inspired not just by their beauty, but also by their resilience. As a result, their embroidery is inspired by the beautiful Lotus flower, which can blossom even in a pool of mud. The lotus submerges itself in water every night with its roots latched in mud and miraculously re-blooms the next morning. The ability of the lotus to resurrect itself inspired the design maestro’s to have it as a central element in their latest brainchild.
The designers believe that the last year has taught them to find beauty in places they often ignored. As a result, they have experimented with colours such as pink, red and teal, in addition to, some unusual colours like plum and oxblood. The fine craftsmanship of embroiders like cheer, katdana and Katori on trendy silhouettes, make this collection perfect for the modern muse. The versatility of designs makes Charu & Vasundhara the ultimate one-stop-shop, ranging from pre-draped sarees to heavily embroidered lehengas.
With subtle detailing like tone on tone embroidery, piping work and royal colours, Saira truly celebrates royalty, beauty and resilience. The collection is a confluence of elements, where royalty meets functionality.
