Lara Dutta unveils her second saree range

The actor joined hands with Chhabra 555 for her new range

Lara Dutta unveiled her second saree collection Friday in association with Chhabra 555 and says the new range is much more traditional compared to her inaugural line.

“I launched my first collection last year, but the unique thing about this range is that it is bit more traditional than the initial one. My whole idea was how different can a sari get in the modern way and this is what I have tried to do,” said Lara, who is known for her roles in No Entry and Chalo Dilli. The actor further added, “The designs are not something that we choose to wear once in a blue moon, but it is something that we want to bring out every time when there is something special.” Apart from acting and designing, Lara is also into film production.

The collection was launched under the label Lara Dutta – Chhabra 555 and includes outfits ranging from traditional Benarasi silks to contemporary net sarees.The colour palette varies from coral, red to midnight blue, and Lara feels that Delhi’s divas can do wonders to her collection with their style sense.

“I’ve always associated Delhi with style and I know women in Delhi are very good at putting together a look, especially with Indian wear. I am excited to see the response to the new, festive collection and look forward to interact with our customer base there,” said Lara.
