Every woman has, at some point, imagined how her wedding day will be. And in every scenario, everything is perfect when she walks towards the love of her life, along with her favourite people, and in the most romantic setting EVER! But what makes all this truly impeccable is her bridal ensemble
, of course. Ain’t nobody getting married looking anything short of stunning, right?
And the designer that every Indian bride aspires to wear is none other than Sabyasachi Mukherjee. Deepika Padukone is the new bride to have joined the club recently. She was dressed in head-to-toe Sabyasachi for both her weddings – the Konkani style and the Anand Karaj. Even Ranveer Singh wore Sabyasachi.
And, it’s not just clothes, Sabyasachi also has a jewellery collection that is just as stunning. Since you are going to buy wedding accessories anyway, might as well make them grand like DeepVeer. After all, this isn’t a useless expenditure, it’s an investment of a lifetime. So, here is everything you need to know about the brand, the brain behind the brand, and its jewellery collections
Who Is Sabyasachi Mukherjee?
Sabyasachi is a luxury label by designer and couturier, Sabyasachi Mukherjee. He comes from a middle-class Bengali family of Kolkata. Mukherjee wanted to study at NIFT college but his parents disagreed. So, he sold his books to pay for the admission form and passed the exam. Four months after his graduation in 1999, Sabyasachi started his eponymous label which we all love and aspire to get married in today.
Sabyasachi’s design philosophy is very simple and clear, “Personalized imperfection of the human hand.” Deserts, gipsies, prostitutes, antique textiles, and cultural traditions of his hometown have been a lifelong inspiration for him.
It was only 10 years ago, in 2008, when he launched a line of jewellery exclusively designed by him in association with the Gaja brand. And in 2009, Sabyasachi opened his first flagship store in Kolkata. Sabyasachi sells out of five flagship stores and is a part of various multi-designer stores in India today. Apart from India, you can also find his store in America, Dubai, and London.
Not many people know this about the designer but he has also designed bed and bath lines for Bombay Dyeing! Surprised, aren’t you?
Why Is Sabyasachi So Famous?
For the last 15 years, Sabyasachi has pioneered and propagated the use of handlooms in his design collection. Not only are his bridal collections
a whole class apart, but his menswear, jewellery collection, and accessories are also lust-worthy. Why else would the entire Bollywood fraternity obsess over one designer so much, eh?
Sabyasachi And Bollywood
Whether it is Anushka Sharma’s wedding lehenga or Alia Bhatt’s look for the promotions of her movie, there is a Sabyasachi item for all occasions. You cannot wear a Sabyasachi outfit without accessorising it with Sabyasachi jewellery. So, here are some of the best looks of your favourite Bollywood stars in Sabyasachi.
After an intimate DeepVeer ki shaadi
where we saw both Deepika and Ranveer in head-to-Sabyasachi, we have decided we are going Team Sabya too. The pictures above are convincing enough. Even for her pre-wedding pooja, Deepika Padukone wore an orange suit by Sabyasachi.
In fact, DP is probably the first celebrity to have worn Sabyasachi the most in the last one year alone than all the other actresses combined.
Whether it is for an event, an award ceremony or a festival, Deepika has Sabyasachi on speed dial for all her OOTD/OOTN needs. Sarees, skirts, shararas or coordinate sets, Sabya is home to a luxury fashion of all kinds.
It was Anushka and her breathtaking bridal lehenga and jewellery that made us want to get married in Sabyasachi couture. From her engagement to mehendi
to the wedding reception, Anushka and Virat both turned up in head-to-toe Sabyasachi. Recently, the Kohlis celebrated their first Karva Chauth
also in Sabyasachi. Such loyalty, much wow!
Alia Bhatt and her fluorescent green lehenga by Sabyasachi did rounds on the Internet for various reasons. The silk and organza lehenga was hand-embroidered with floral motifs in delicate silver thread-work, and paired with a statement choker
from the Sabyasachi Heritage Jewelry collection. She carried this look to Sonam Kapoor’s wedding reception and stole the night stylishly.
Kangana Ranaut’s Cannes 2018 look had us hooked. She wore a rendition of Sabya’s famous ‘Aakash-tara
’, meaning starry sky, saree. The saree was hand-dyed and embellished with hand-cut sequins individually sewn using the zardosi
technique to create a metallic yet fluid fabric. This, she accessorised with a Sabyasachi batua
and the ‘Teenmaniya
, crafted out of rose-cut diamonds, Colombian emeralds and Basra pearls from the Sabyasachi Heritage Jewelry Collection. She did her hair in a bouffant style to complement the ultra-glam saree. And, here are 34 other hairstyles you can try with your saree to nail the look like Kangana.
