The Good Morrow By Metaphysical Poet John Donne
I wonder, by my troth, what thou and I
Did, till we loved? Were we not weaned till then?
But sucked on country pleasures, childishly?
Or snorted we in the Seven Sleepers’ den?
’Twas so; but this, all pleasures fancies be.
If ever any beauty I did see,
Which I desired, and got, ’twas but a dream of thee.
A verse from one of my favourite poets, The 17th Century Metaphysical Poet John Donne.
Fall, Truly, Madly Deeply in Love in the Forgotten Poetry Dress!
Hopeless romantics your fashion moment has come. We have unearthed the one! The dress to break your heart to smithereens– L Saha’s Forgotten Poetry Dress – is like stumbling across a ravishing talisman from a love affair to remember. A heartbreakingly lovely jewel of a dress locked away as a memento in a capacious trunk in the attic. A dress your mother or daring aunt wore back in the day. This oh so sublime, form-fitting siren dress is strewn with deeply personal lines of poetry written by the most evocative of modern fashion designers, Laboni Saha – the creative director behind label to adore – L SAHA.

Anything and anything can be grist to this highly poetic designer who perfectly distils the idea of something old, something new in her sustainably opulent fashion house – steeped in the colours and classical heritage of a richly evocative childhood, growing up in Kolkata, India. Yes! We are musing on those ravishing, clashing golds and royal purples in the most precious natural fibres! Very Mughal princess. Flitting from the past to the present, L Saher is the consummate magpie. Every stitch, every drape, every fold of fabric, twinkles with profound memories, emotions, thoughts of faraway places and the delightful pastime of pressing dried flowers into treasured books. This is the label for the modern Elizabeth Bennett to wow her Darcy.
Laboni’s greatest wish is to revive the art of heirloom fashion to wear, keep and treasure for years to come. We think she has succeeded to dazzling effect. After all, as Francois Sagan wrote, ‘ a dress doesn’t work unless a man wants to take it off..’ Here’s dreaming of love and lines of poetry to come.
Laboni Saha studied fashion with distinction at the National Institute of Fashion India. She went on to study at The London College of Fashion and has an MA in fashion business management from The University of Westminster.
