Mumbai, May 2 (IANS) Actress-designer Mandira Bedi has unveiled her patent collection of beach saris titled Salt. Drawing inspiration from delicate and breezy resort wear, Mandira tailored the collection for the dramatic and bold women of today who believe in the power of understated glamour, striking a fine balance between elegance and attractiveness.
Continuing the bender of unmatched designs by using flowy soft drapes and fabrics like lycra in summer colours and styles designed to be fluid and relaxing – Salt is a prêt line that allows all to ride the cool waves this season effortlessly.
“The colour palette for this collection is much varied and so are the drapes and patterns. There are broadly three different styles within this, namely solids, constructs and digital prints.
“The colours are mostly bright red, lime green and the type with a lot of aqua shades like powder blue and blush pink. The idea was simple; to let everyone be comfortable in their own skin,” Mandira, who ventured into fashion designing in 2013, told IANS.
She says it breaks the conventional boundaries by ease of wear, drape and use.
“Inspired by the utility of a sarong, this sari gives you the pallu that can just be thrown on before or after a swim. Quick dry lycra makes it an ideal fabric to carry and cart with its own unique carry pouch,” said the “Shaadi Ka Laddoo” actress.
The price will vary Priced between Rs.4500 and Rs.8500, the collection is available both at her store and online market places including her own website and Amazon.in.
