Love H&M? Yes. Love Sabyasachi Mukherjee? Definitely, yes! And together, we wouldn't dare ask. It's fairly straightforward the answer! Dropping the collection, officially called Wanderlust, Sabyasachi Calcutta x H&M, on August 12, what is most striking about this collaboration is that both brands have their essence intact. You still have the uniqueness, heritage and elegance of Sabyasachi, blending with the on-trend patterns and contemporary H&M styles. All the patterns in the collaboration are hand-drawn by the Sabyasachi Art Foundation, and we're already eyeing the chiffon, flowy dresses, the super stylish balloon-sleeve blouses and of course, the trousers. So, really, this resort wear meets classic Wanderlust is a proper visual treat!
There's one stunning straight-cut kaftan that is cut from crinkled chiffon, with sequins and embroidery that will make you feel like you've just strutted off the runway. The high slits in the sides and the pompom trim around the sleeves and hem, gives it a classic 70s edge, which will always turn heads.
If you're looking for accessories, then expect to pick up studded rings, rhinestone neckpieces, dramatically studded leather clutches and even sunglasses to boot. We're loving the eclectic collection, and designs that bring an unusual, classic and timeless perspective to the otherwise fast-fashion associated brand.
Gentleman, chinos, shorts, gilets, shirts and trainers are on the cards for you.
Prices start at INR 1,499 for t-shirts and go up to INR 10,000 plus for apparel.
