Raw Mango’s Heer set to take you back to old world Punjab
Sanjay Garg's new collection goes back to traditional fuss-free silhouettes for blushing brides
Delhi-based textile revivalist, Sanjay Garg, recently celebrated a decade of his brand, Raw Mango in Hyderabad. On that occasion, he launched his Festive 2018 collection, titled Heer in the city with a travelling pop-up held at multi-designer boutique, Elahe recently. His patrons can avail them by getting in touch with Sanjay’s team. “Hyderabadis are quite keen on embracing changes and they understand their textiles so well,” said the Delhi-based designer.
For blushing brides
His latest collection, Heer, is set to take one back to the royal landscape of Baradari Palace in Patiala. It is reminiscent of the old times where the brides sported fuss-free trousseau. “This collection is an aesthetic of a shared culture before the partition of Punjab. I wanted to evoke an idea of the land which saw a mix of sartorial influences from the Hindus and Muslims, like say the shararas,” says the designer.
The vintage edge
From this eclectic collection, his buyers can expect an opulent mix of saris and separates such as knee-length kurtas paired with shararas and silk satin odhanis. The colours spotted in the collection comprise greens, mustard yellow, magenta, blush pinks with a hint of red. “This is the first time we have used a bit of black as well,” recalls Sanjay. Apart from silk, the fabrics that Sanjay has worked with for this collection range from brocade, organza and mashru.
