Delhi Couture Week 2012: Sabyasachi

Sabyasachi was the finale designer at PCJ Delhi Couture Week 2012 and he presented his New Moon collection which is supposed to be inspired by cultures from across the world. He is kind of the master of nerdy Indian chic, i loved how he incorporated peter pan collars into Indian Wear, i loved the use of lace, and i loved  how each piece was so refreshingly different  and unique from the other.   The one feeling you always get looking at Sabyasachi’s clothes is that so much thought must have gone behind each detail of each piece. Cant call this a bridal collection, but can definitely call it a couture collection with a difference. ADORE!.Definitely worth a finale.

Most likely to be seen on: Rani Mukherjee/ Vidya Balan at the filmfare awards

NEW MOON – 2012 Couture Collection by Sabyasachi Mukherjee

At PCJ Delhi Couture Week, presented by FDCI

Sabyasanchi’s travels around the world have culminated in his 2012 couture collection. 5 cities bring five flavors, the straitjacket discipline of Newyork, the classic nostalgia of the British Raj in Kolkata, the subversive decadenceof Berlin, the incredible romance of Paris and the bohemian flair of Barcelona all come together to create a collection, that is very global yet very Indian. Russian needlepoint, boutis from provence, zardozi from Agra, Kantha from Bangladesh, block printing from bengal and Rajasthan, intricately embroidered Pashmina from Kashmir, chints from the United Kingdom and toile de joy from France, coexist with rhinestone, baubles, bows and the finest quality of needle craft to create a collection that is exuberant yet disciplined.

Accessories for the collection are from Sabyasachi’s new edgy label – Sabyasachi by Sabyasachi which debuted at Sotheby’s London.

OOh love the 4th lehenga-saree! and the last lehenga,
With his collection you just have to imagine the bridal look a bit if you dont want ancient royal indian look.

More for a non-blingy bride i guess

Finally an Indian designer for whom couture is not equivalent to bridal wear..amazing breathtaking designs..Sabya never fails to perform…every piece is finished to perfection..not all within the reach of the pocket but a wonderful treat to the eyes..


mehak August 13, 2012 at 6:46 pm

Agreeee- its a stunnerof a collection!

Love Sridevi’s outfit!!!


shruti August 13, 2012 at 7:56 pm

Beyond gorgeous. This is couture in every sense of the word. I need to start saving to get my hands on a Sabyasachi!
Saw a different version of the green/grey outfit and I was stunned at the beauty of it. The green is so beautiful!
Hey Mehak, have you been to the Carma store that carries Sabya in delhi?


mehak August 13, 2012 at 11:55 pm

Hi Shruti.
Iv been to one store near Qutab Minar, which has Sabyasachi- went there recently when it was on not sure if it was called Carma though..
All i remember is i got an sms tht Sabya is on sale for half hour only and i was luckily around the area but by the time i went this one lady had billed all ten things that were on sale!!!!


shruti August 14, 2012 at 12:18 am

Oh I see. Probably, that’s the one. She billed all 10 things?!Good lord!
Its strange that you mention that the stuff was on sale. I recently read an article that said that in the 10 years that he has been in the business, his clothes have never gone on sale. I’m actually intrigued now.
But, about the store- did you feel like it carried an extensive range? I know some of his stuff also retails at Aza and Ensemble. But the one at Qutub is supposed to be exclusively Sabya.


mehak August 14, 2012 at 8:26 am

Hi Shruti,
yeah its more extensive than aza and ensemble… the stuff is mostly semi-heavy and its a mix of indian and semi western things..very worth the visit..
No hes gone on sale twice…the first time it was 10% off, the next time you wont believe it …it was only for people who are on the address book and have bought from him before so we all got sms’s that the sale was for half an hour only from 10:30 am to 11:00 am and sabya suits were on sale for 12K !!!!! There were just 10 suits though on sale and one woman had picked up all of them.

And ya the one si visited is carma..just checked the address it matches


shruti August 14, 2012 at 7:48 pm

Great. Thanks for all the info!


FashionPhD August 13, 2012 at 10:00 pm

Couture does not mean bridal. I am glad he is one indian who understands that.


mehak August 13, 2012 at 11:57 pm

The thing is, that even if people dont do bridal and do ‘couture’like shantanu and nikhil tried this time – it sometimes just comes off as tacky western gowns with indian embroidery. ..he manages to stay true to india but still elevate himself above everyone else..


Richa Saxena August 13, 2012 at 11:05 pm

Loved the collection….Amazingly designed!


NeZ August 14, 2012 at 7:05 pm

~ wow! Very nice work- you know the ivory saree (2nd pic on right) and the red one under it remind me of Elie Saab ;) def agree with you though- his work looks very planned and meticulously thought about. Some new designers I’ll keeP an eye out for too are Shyamal and Bhumika. Really like their royal/traditional looking work.
Congrats on the wedding Mehak! You made a stunning bride! :)


Dolon August 15, 2012 at 4:40 am

Way to go fellow Bong :)))…. What stunning creations!


S&B August 15, 2012 at 4:46 pm

adored each and every pic – the detailing in each of the pieces is mind blowing


BeautyIndia September 17, 2012 at 5:51 pm

Except 16th and 17th all are look so old and dull.I don’t think that these dresses to be wear in Wedding for me i find them the old early times of dresses. I don’t find any Fashion in wearing these dresses.


mehak September 17, 2012 at 6:41 pm

It wasnt a bridal wear line- it was a couture line.
