Masaba Gupta collaborates with Rhea Kapoor for exclusive collection
today Dec 2, 2019
Designer Masaba Gupta has collaborated with stylist Rhea Kapoor for a 15-piece exclusive trousseau collection titled “The Chronicles of Femininity” which launched in-store on November 30.
“We’re here to show you that delicate can be daring too,” wrote House of Masaba on Facebook to launch its latest collaborative collection. The Chronicles of Femininity mixes Gupta’s modern take on traditional wear with Kapoor’s feminine aesthetic to create a collection of wedding-themed pieces featuring custom rose prints and pastel hues.
“Rhea and I understand our bodies very well today,” Gupta told Vogue India about her inspiration for the collection. “We don’t kill ourselves to fit into anything. Our collection celebrates that very spirit. It’s truly an extension of how we dress in our lives.”
“As a stylist, my biggest joy has been collaborating with designers on custom-made looks,” Kapoor told Vogue India. “There is a specific brief, a vision, a story. So this project has been very creatively satisfying for me. It also presents a side of Masaba as a designer you’ve never seen before.”
The collection is much more dainty than Gupta’s signature bold and whimsical printed fusion wear and was inspired in part by Gupta’s mother, actor Neena Gupta, and her costumes in the 1983 film “Mandi”. Other inspirations include Dimple Kapadia, Parveen Babi, and Naomi Campbell in Galliano for Christian Dior.
House of Masaba is also currently holding a pop-up shop in Amiraah, Kanpur, to launch its winter collection in the city from December 1 to 4. The pop-up features the brand’s latest occasion wear offerings for the winter wedding season, House of Masaba posted on Facebook.
