This latest collection is inspired by Jaipur and Mr. Balana’s memories of it
July 26, 2021: Borrowing from his Spring/Summer ’21 edit of Mandana, Indian designer Punit Balana has designed an extension of it with a bright cherry shade, and introduced it to brides, bridesmaids and the variety of guests at weddings.
With a subtle reference to how weddings today have become more personal and intimate, this addition to Mandana is fresh in terms of colours and prints.
Delicate fabrics are embellished with traditional handcrafted work. Featuring young silhouettes of ease, additional geometrical prints, along with floral ones, this collection doesn’t adhere to the conservative rules set by Mandana. Lehengas are lightweight and breezy. Sarees are modern and festive. Mens’ kurtas are light and matching in the same fabric and shade.
Not only is this collection an expression of how the designer has seen Jaipur over the years, it is about finding love in the stories that were written and those that are yet to be written. Mandana for Intimate Weddings pays homage to Jaipur, and the stories each one of us live with.
This collection can be found at the Jaipur and Mumbai flagship stores and online at the brand website.
