Sabyasachi Mukherjee opens new flagship store in Mumbai. Located in the heart of Mumbai’s art precinct, Kala Ghoda at Fort Mumbai, the elegant facade of the heritage building of Ador House on 6 K Dubash Marg, is now abode to the world of Sabyasachi. Spread over 8,500 square feet and two levels, the store is an overview of Sabyasachi’s vision of Indian luxury.
Twenty two vintage hand painted chandeliers. An Iranian carpet that has passed many hands. Four hundred Ittar bottles painstakingly collected from the by lanes of Hyderabad and Lucknow. Fifty two antique rugs. A multitude of beautifully framed period calendar art from the Twenties. Chintz curtains block printed on 200 count khadi. A gaggle of hand wound clocks. Courtyard pillars from Gujarat and recycled colonial furniture.
From imposing historical pieces to modern quirk like the Amul book, cluttered romance of Parsi and Bengali homes, to regimented structure of cantonment bungalows, the store has it all. Mystery, intrigue, nostalgia, and hidden dollops of street humour.
It is a home to his much desired wedding collectibles, ready to wear saris, Indian and western formal and casual clothes. There is a dedicated section of menswear which is becoming quite popular with discerning men seeking out cultured Indian clothing. The quirky ‘Sabyasachi by Sabyasachi’ ready-to-wear line and his extremely popular fashion accessories will soon find their way into the store.
The store also introduces bespoke bridal jewellery for the first time which is designed by Kishan Das and Co of Hyderabad, heritage jewellers since 1870 and curated by Sabyasachi. He is most excited for the addition of the couture jewellery section that brings forth the finest hand crafted precious jewels the country has ever seen. The store hence becomes a one stop shop for brides and grooms and everyone else looking for Indian clothing and jewellery solutions.
Browse through a world detached from reality where time stands still. Have a cup of hand-pressed coffee, in a tropical cactus garden, pick up a book and sit back and enjoy the world of Sabya. In his own words, “I want people to enjoy the spaces I create. Buying clothes is only incidental”.
