Keeping in mind the demands of tropical spring in Pakistan, Sania Maskatiya has launched her collection for the season of colours titled Maneli. The capsule features Sania’s signature handcrafted pieces perfect for the blooming spring season and comprises 17 distinct embellishments and digital printed vignettes.
Some of the pieces come with blowy, ruffled dupattas, while others have bohemian and floral patterns. The collection is perfect to portray a ‘summer romance’ with a sense of ease. What we like the most about the collection is it organic fusion of timeless classics and contemporary designs. Some of the chicest looks are stylized on beautiful shades of luminous papaya, gold, cherry red, emerald green and sorbet hues.
Here are our top five picks from the Maneli collection that can easily be worn at various occasions.
Starting with formals that can be worn at soirée, luncheons and dinner parties, this Hath-ari jamawaar jacket features elaborate handwork along the neckline. In addition to that, the handwork runs along the hemline and sleeve cuffs as well. The picturesque print over the fabric gives the jacket a present-day vibe; something that can be worn over jeans and a tank top with an open front panel.
This digitally printed mint green cotton net angarkha with hand-embellishments is a perfect ensemble to wear at a friend’s dholki. It is paired with an eclectic net dupatta with gota patti’s and printed organza panels.
Bring out the glam factor in this monochrome long column shirt featuring net machine embroidery and hand embroidered embellishments. White floral motifs give a blossoming feel to an otherwise dark hued number.
As for shaadi and wedding receptions, any of these two can be your best bets. A heavily embellished velvet choli is complemented by a gold hand-embellished lehenga. The dress comes with net chan dupatta.
This is a dress to channel your inner diva! The beautiful handcrafted tissue top has an intricate cut work peplum with floral embellishments at the back. The glistening top is paired with a Dhaka pajama accentuated with stones to add charisma.
Maneli is available at all Sania Maskatiya outlets in Karachi and Lahore, retailers and online.
