Saks Fifth Avenue to Show Collection From Sabyasachi From India

A bit of India is coming to the new Saks Fifth Avenue flagship in Beverly Hills.

The luxury department store, which recently moved a half a block away to the old Barneys New York building on Wilshire Boulevard, will launch an exclusive, limited-edition partnership with Sabyasachi, a leading luxury fashion house from India.

Sabyasachi is a rich collection of clothing by Indian designer Sabyasachi Mukherjee, who launched his line in India in 1999 and pioneered the use of high-end luxury Indian textiles fashioned into modern looks.

The presentation, available March 5 to 16, will showcase a red carpet capsule collection called Cinématique, curated specifically for the Saks partnership. It includes couture, women’s and men’s ready-to-wear, accessories, and jewelry, including a selection of one-of-a-kind high jewelry pieces. The collection is inspired by Bollywood, the private clubs of Kolkata and the Nizam of Hyderabad.

The Indian designer said Los Angeles, where art, entertainment and culture collide, is “ideal for championing the best and finest of Indian craftsmanship to the world.”

Elaborate visual installations of the brand will be set up around the five-story structure. Sabyasachi will also be taking over three styling suites from March 8 to 10 on the fifth floor of the store where the Indian designer will host private appointments with clients.

“Sabyasachi Mukherjee is a visionary who has mesmerized the world with his unique and exquisite designs,” noted Roopal Patel, senior vice president, fashion director, Saks Fifth Avenue. “It is an honor to celebrate Indian craftsmanship, quality and heritage in partnership with Sabyasachi.”

Sabyasachi, which has stores in India and Dubai and a flagship with 31 chandeliers in New York City, has collaborated with several major international brands including Christian Louboutin, H&M, and Morgenthal Frederics.

The designer was relatively unknown in the United States until Fern Mallis brought him to New York for fashion week in 2006. Mukherjee said he couldn’t land distribution in a single U.S. store until then. Now, he is famous in India and around the world.
