One of India's most famous designers is teaming up with H&미디엄

뉴욕 (CNN 사업)Sabyasachi is a household name in India and its diaspora. Brides dream of wearing the luxury designer’s saris and lehengas, and Bollywood celebrities are frequently spotted in his designs. He created one of Priyanka Chopra Jonas’s traditional wedding outfits. And starting this week, consumers will be able to buy Sabyasachi at H&미디엄 (HNNMY).

As part of H&M’s latest high-low collaboration launching Aug. 12, the collection, called ‘Wanderlust,’ mixes traditional Indian style with contemporary design. It will make designer Sabyasachi Mukherjee’s famed Indian fabrics and prints accessible to wide audiences.
    This is H&M’s first global Indian designer collaboration. The collection ranges from sequined kaftans for women to printed sets for men, priced up to $ 299.
      Mukherjee had no intention of working with fast fashion. His previous collaborations were with the likes of Christian Louboutin and Bergdorf Goodman.
          A long time ago, I had promised myself that when the time was right, I would make a collaborative (ready-to-wear) 선 for my consumers, so that I can reach out to the many requests I have gotten over the years to make my creations more affordable,” Mukherjee said.
          Sabyasachi said it’s time for India to move past its image as a manufacturing hub, and for the country’s designers tocross over into the mainstream.The country has a rich design history, rooted in traditional textiles and crafts — it is as diverse as India itself, from streetwear to bridal couture.
          India is not yet a market as significant as China in terms of scale, but it is definitely emerging, and I think collaborations like these firmly cement India as a market that the globe should no longer ignore,” Mukherjee said.
          Fern Mallis, the creator of New York Fashion Week and an industry consultant working with Mumbai’s Lakme Fashion Week, has for the past decade heard Indian designers aspire to become global brands and sell in America.
          Mallis said Sabyasachi, 하나, did his homework. The collaboration with a global fast fashion brand like H&M will leave a large — and accessible — footprint. 현재, there are over 4,000 H&M stores worldwide, including locations throughout India. Data from McKinsey in 2019 보여 주었다 that India’s apparel market would be worth $ 59.3 billion in 2022, the sixth largest in the world, almost equal to the United Kingdom and Germany.
          She also said the collaboration could help clear up misconceptions Westerners can have about Indian clothing — that they are either overly-embellished wedding clothes orhippie-dippie.
          It’s been frustrating to me because I wear a ton of clothes from designers from India,” Mallis said. “I’m always stopped and asked where I got it, but the answer is always, ‘sorry no, it’s from India.'
            Mukherjee said it’s smart business for him to embrace a new market with a multicultural vision. He also has plans to launch accessories and beauty globally.
            It was my mission to make H&M’s first sari, it’s my pièce de résistance, and an absolute coup to convince H&M to make a Sabyasachi sari,” Mukherjee said.
