His designs are breathtaking.

 

He just released his latest collection, on the 2nd of August and people can’t get enough of it

He has released several designs, both bridal and a formal collection for men and women. This latest collection has been launched for the winter and has been debuted on his official Instagram account.

 

 

He started his career in 1999, after graduating from fashion school

He only had 3 people working with him initially, and it wasn’t until two years later in 2001, when he won the Femina British Council award for Outstanding Young Designer that he became a recognizable name and started retailing in major stores in India.

Memories of another day… Elaborately hand-painted lehengas by The Sabyasachi Art Foundation are intricately embroidered with silk-floss, beaten gold and silver thread, badla and bullion and encrusted with semi-precious stones and pearls. In order to preserve the highest standards of craftsmanship, some of these bridal ensembles take over 3400 man-hours to finish. When placed in the context of contemporary life, they easily qualify as modern heirlooms. Jewellery Courtesy: Sabyasachi Heritage Jewelry Collection.

And people agree that the man is a genius.

 

LOOK 👀 AT 👀 THIS 👀

The heartland of India wears red bridal sarees. They are either Benarasis or the distinct aari-taari sarees with gota or zardosi borders. For me, these sarees are “chicken soup for the soul.” Every time I see one of them, they represent a certain timelessness and a sense of assurance that is all is well. Perhaps, these are old familiar tales that we need to cling to in desperation in an ever-changing world to find our way back home. At Sabyasachi, these are the textile and design stories that we love to celebrate. Not as designers or revivalists, but as restoration artists. Because in our confused modern world, a lot of us need a little bit of hand-holding, a little sign from popular culture that restores our faith in our own identities.

If you think his designs give you very Bollywood-Padmavati feels, there’s a reason why

Soon after his success with runway fashion Sabyasachi forayed into film costume design, and in 2005 won a national award for his costume design for the movie Black by director Sanjay Leela Bhansali.

At this point why are other designers even trying?

Come winter, we always present another house classic- our velvet sarees. This year we present it in Burma Ivory with a painstakingly embroidered ‘tilla’ work pallu inspired from a rare Kashmiri shawl. The pleats are embroidered on tulle with marori and gota. The look is accessorized with 22k gold, uncut diamonds, emerald and pearl jewellery from the Sabyasachi Heritage Jewelry Collection. The gentleman wears a quilted silk sherwani in hand-dyed Murshidabad silk and accessorized with hand-crafted Bengal tiger buttons.

Kalamkari sarees in khadi from Andhra Pradesh are meticulously textured and overdyed. Done with a simple lock-stitch machine, this technique is one of the pillars of our brand. We call it stitch detail. One karigar takes over 31 days to texture a saree. The saree is further embellished with our signature zardosi borders which are aged with complex processes. The heart of the saree lies in its stunning pallu which is crafted out of a melange of heritage borders that are made in different craft belts all across the country. Women from the villages of Barasat create beautiful hand-made tassels to fringe the pallu and pieces of textiles are sewn together to create a unique and distinctive blouse.

Sabyasachi has now made it to the point that he does not need to be introduced. He is internationally recognized. And his fanbase seems to be just as strong in Pakistan as it is in his home country, India.

 

People from both sides of the border seem to be LOVING the new collection.

And honestly what’s not to love? He has put out a lot of designs and people can’t seem to get enough of them. Every style is intricate and all the pieces from the collection have a story behind it.

What do you think of Sabyasachi’s latest collection? Let us know in the comments.
