Masaba’s Sartorial Sensibilities Squash The Notion That Designers Lack Personal Style

Masaba

Ah, the fashion industry. For an outsider (short for: wary parents), all it comprises is high octane glamour, savage partying, clamouring heels, copious drug usage and shockingly underdressed designers. Enter black hoodies and pyjamas. Which is totally cool by the way.

However, sorry to break it to you, you’re a teeny-tiny bit off track. Fashion designers know how to dress, albeit a little simple for your liking, but you’re no Gaultier, so take a seat por favor. Maybe the designer doesn’t want to treat the world as their own runway. One prime example of having a prominent personal style in the pool of these creative wizards is Masaba. In my hypervigilant Instagram stalking mode, never have I ever encountered a fit of hers which the fashion gods won’t approve of. Dare I say, she’s dressed better than most Bollywood A-listers. Ample shade intended.

Now an actress herself, all thanks to her debut in Netflix’s Masaba Masaba & Prime’s Modern Love: Mumbai, instances of her dressing up for public appearances have become all the more frequent and I can’t help but stan.

Masaba opted for this resort-chic, cutout dress by MATI and paired with the ‘it’ micro bag by Jacquemus. The jewellery is by Amama jewels and helps elevate the laid back look by giving it a glamorous heads up.

Sari Not Sorry

An offering by her namesake label, this sari by the House Of Masaba is emblematic of the persona of a modern Indian woman. Going down the halter blouse route was a welcome decision and the gold foliage border alongside the black and white colour-blocked print drapes on the body effortlessly. Like second skin.

It’s giving lounge chic and we’re loving it. the designer knows her leisure dressing ABC’s very well. Not sure about the brand name, but this polo dress is reminiscent of the iconic Ralph Lauren polo shirt and its centre front placket is a major green flag owing to its possible undoing after a large pizza. Scrumptious. The dress, I mean.

Black jacket. White shirt. Black silk slip. Pearls. And gold. AND Ray Bans. She’s a fashion girl and it shows. The selfie dates back to her Milano outing and it certainly has every mortal’s stamp of approval, period. Taking notes.

What seems like a very interesting personal reinterpretation of the infamous ‘New Look’ by Dior from the 40s, this is an easy to replicate outfit, ranking high on the versatility pedestal. The hot pink blazer is a nod to Masaba’s personal design signature and the finely pleated, gold accordion skirt is an ideal bottom to pair it with.

Achieve the quintessential look with this blue crinkle gota sari from her label in a deep indigo hue and the beige shimmer coming in to save the day. With the blue kohl rimmed eyes and double drop kundan polki studs, this look worthy of all the laurels.

Her collaboration with Gucci for their iconic Gucci Blondie bag saw her embody every bit of the goddess she is, wearing this lush plum coloured set. Coupled with the corset boning and a fitted silk skirt, the striking gold of the studs and the bag’s iconography makes it a showstopping proponent.

Another House Of Masaba goodie, this 80s style printed shirt is a must have for your wardrobe. The floppy collars and bell sleeves- a big yes. Pair it with boot cut jeans et voilà, Masaba would undoubtedly approve! The muted tangerine lippie- we surely approve!
