The story behind Anushka-Virat’s exclusive wedding trousseau

The wedding of the year has taken place and internet can’t stop buzzing. Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli have tied the knot and their fans are going berserk. There’s no doubt about the fact that the couple had the most exotic wedding ever, but it’s their trousseau that has the world talking! Designed by none other than ace designer Sabyasachi Mukherjee, the duo’s wedding ensembles are one of the most stylish wedding outfits worn by any celebrity couple and each cloth has a beautiful story behind it.
Sabyasachi took to Instagram to talk about his beautiful creations. Calling Anushka and Virat, the Sabyasachi bride and groom, the designer shared some insights about what went into designing an enviable wedding trousseau for one of the most desirable couples.

According to Sabyasachi, the actress wanted a unique ensemble for her Mehndi, “Anushka wanted a boho look full of bright colours. Hot pink was her favourite. We created a graphic lehenga in fuchsia pink and Indian orange. It was hand-printed by the famed Calcutta block printers and hand-embroidered with gota and marori. Artists from The Sabyasachi Art Foundation rendered a beautiful sixties pop print and it was silk screen printed, hand woven Indian silk. Anushka accessorised herself with earrings from the Sabyasachi Heritage Jewelry collection, a stunning pair of jhumkas crafted in 22k gold with Iranian turquoise, tourmalines, uncut diamonds and Japanese cultured pearls. Custom juttis in hand woven brocade and zardosi completed the look,” said the designer.
Meanwhile, Virat opted for a signature khadi kurta churidaar with our classic fuchsia pink textured silk Nehru jacket detailed with the Sabyasachi House blazer buttons. A custom tan leather jutti with a zardosi crest was created for the ensemble.

Elaborating on her engagement sari, Sabya wrote, “For her engagement, Anushka wanted to wear a Sabyasachi velvet saree. And we made it in our signature Gulkand Burgundy. It was hand-embroidered using miniature pearls and the finest quality zardosi and marori. She wore a stunning uncut diamond and pearl choker with matching studs. The entire look was complemented with kohl-rimmed eyes, red roses and our now iconic micro dot bindi.”
Virat kept it simple in a crisp blue suit and accessorised the look with a white floral lapel pin and a sky blue tie.

Now, come the most talked about outfits – the lehenga and the sherwani! Anushka donned a pale pink lehenga with renaissance embroidery in vintage English colours, embellished with silver-gold metal thread, pearls and beads. Her bridal jewellery was courtesy, Sabyasachi Heritage Jewelry collection with handcrafted with syndicate uncut diamonds, pale pink spinel and baroque Japanese cultured pearls. The uncut diamond and spinel choker, earrings and mathapatti, along with the beautiful fresh Tuscan hydrangeas on her hair will definitely become the accessory trends for 2018.
