Sabyasachi is on a roll and all this rolling is taking his brand straight to Manhattan along with 300 stunning creations to open a pop-up shop at Bergdorf Goodman. If you track Sabyasachi’s journey, you will know that the designer is reaching new heights and is getting used to the sweet taste of success with a recent investment from one of India’s biggest retailers, Aditya Birla Fashion and Retail Limited. Now Sabyasachi will make a global impact starting with this pop-up that will include Indian wear such as saris and lehengas, fine jewelry, and more. In fact, Bergdorf’s will also mark the global launch of the Sabyasachi handbag collection enhanced with embroidery and unique motifs, ranging from $234 to $1,790. Similarly, Sabyasachi fine jewelry will also be part of the pop-up with Bergdorf range starting at about $5,000 and go up to $348,000. In India, Sabyasachi jewelry has seen incredible growth with the segment contributing to 40 percent of his company’s turnover. With all of Bollywood’s power couples sporting his fine jewels, his jewelry has caught the public eye too. Sabyasachi said, “It is one thing to include a designer but another to include a country in the store. With this collection, I am speaking to a mixed global consumer — and it is also recognition of the changing consumer by Bergdorf Goodman. It is a big nod to how big the domestic Indian fashion market is becoming and now retailers worldwide want a share of the pie. It is a game-changer for both Indian and U.S retail.”
It’s a moment of pride for the country as well as validation for Sabyasachi fans that have chosen a sought-after brand that is leaving a global mark in the field of high fashion and high jewelry as well. The pop-up shop at Bergdorf Goodman in Manhattan will be open from Feb. 18 to March 20.
