Sabyasachi muse Kalki gets a glowing tribute from the designer himself

He's not holding back

By ELLE team  January 22nd, 2018

Sabyasachi is all about letting his clothes do the talking, giving each of his masterpieces an identity with the fabrics, craftsmanship and intricate embellishment used to bring them to life. Each garment tells a story, of the brand and of the person it was created for. But in his latest Instagram post, the man himself seems almost gushing that this particular Bollywood actress sported one of his red carpet creations.  That’s right, the newest Sabyasachi muse seems to be Kalki Koechlin. The designer is famous for posting pictures of clients, models and actresses in his garments, but always makes it a point to get into the workmanship and inspiration of his outfits. But this time, he seems more interested in the garment’s wearer, Kalki. 

Let me just say it. I love Kalki! @kalkikanmani @kalkikoechlin Because she is brave enough to be who she is. From her choice of films to the choices she makes in her personal life – a lesson in self belief! In an industry consumed by power, she exists happily in the fringes, on her own terms. One of the most magnificent actresses of our time, she is India’s main candidate for export to Hollywood, but is happy to do small theatre productions across the country. Has it got anything to do with her eclectic French genes? A real unsung hero with such ‘je ne sais quoi’! Even here she makes a Sabyasachi saree her very own, yellow – full of the sunny Koechlin disposition. #Sabyasachi #TheWorldOfSabyasachi #KalkiKoechlin

The post gushes about her quirky personality, her humility and her talent. Which would be completely normal if he did this for every celebrity who wore his garments.

Kalki who is someone who has always described her sense of style as eclectic, crediting it to shopping in flea markets in her childhood, is just as relaxed in the Sabyasachi creation as anything else. Proving that even when it comes to fashion, the actress is always comfortable even when she’s not in her comfort zone. What we really hope to see out of this though is a boho, free-spirited line from the designer. Just to shake things up.
