Sari Not Sorry

Komal Basith

We’re going back to our roots.

It’s fair to say that the sari is having a bit of a moment; your favourite Bollywood style icon is just as likely to wear one on a red carpet as she is a dress from Dolce & Gabbana, and some of our favourite Indian designers regularly show versions of it every season - but there’s still this prevailing sense of a sari being something you wear when an occasion calls for it instead of just because.


So how would you wear a sari on a regular day - to work, to dinner, to a friend’s? In the photoshoot below, we’re playing with the idea of the sari as a quotidian piece of clothing - which is ironic, we know, because there’s nothing that says Indian everydayness quite like a sari. Here’s what we came up with.
