Master couturier Sabyasachi Mukherjee has a new home. His flagship store, spread over 13.500 sq ft, is palatial, in every sense of the word.
With heritage, history and the grand Qutub Minar in the backdrop, Haveli No. 6-8 in Qutub Serai, Mehrauli, is the new address for the designer’s flagship store in the capital. Vintage artwork graces every nook and corner of the haveli, courtesy the well-known Sabyasachi Art Foundation. Hand-painted chandeliers, 700 ittar bottles, and the softest fabrics on 112 carpets lend a mystical aura to the indoors of the store. The rarest of Tanjore greet the eyes, while the wall-mounted and neatly placed Dutch plates, retouched studio portraits and calendar wall-art pieces adorn the space. The wallpaper designed by the maestro himself for Nilaya by Asian Paints will transport you to the time of royals in India. Outside, there is a grand staircase that will welcome you to the store that is spread over two large wings.
FASHION FOR MEN AND WOMEN
The first wing houses the bridal wear for women, with Kishandas & Co jewelry for the company, designed exclusively for Sabyasachi Mukherjee. In addition to that, the trunks and luggage pieces of the vintage era, courtesy Trunks Company, Jaipur, complete the royal ambiance. In the second wing, the designer displays prêt-a-porter resplendent with ethnicity and culture; his signature styles on saris and kurtas. This wing has separate sections for men and women, along with a dominant section for traditional men's footwear.
The Qutub Flagship store by Sabyasachi Mukherjee has a hypnotic mix of luxury, grandeur, and tradition, harmoniously married with plenty of narratives. Heritage and style form the essence of the store, without intimidating the visitor with a grand label name.
