DYING SPLENDOR: A collection of sumptuous outfits worn by the last of the maharajas will go on show for the first time outside of India in an exhibition at the Pierre Bergé-Yves Saint Laurent Foundation in Paris next month. “Les Derniers Maharajas” (“The Last of the Maharajas”) will showcase some 50 outfits from the collection of Deepak and Daksha Hutheesing, whose family has amassed 5,000 pieces ranging from royal robes to tribal dress. The costumes date from 1911 to 1947, coinciding with the dying days of the Raj when the maharajas, banned from waging war by the British crown, turned to increasingly extravagant outfits to assert their supremacy. The exhibition will run from Feb. 10 to May 9.
