Sabyasachi Mukherjee on Working With Louboutin and Growing a Megabrand in India

In addition to global collaborations with brands and retailers including Christian Louboutin, Pottery Barn and Lane Crawford in the last nine months, Sabyasachi launched a jewelry line and broke the mold with a new flagship in New Delhi. The 13,500-square-foot store with 57 chandeliers, 112 carpets and more than 300 pieces of art brought in a series of unique concepts in fashion retail. His Kolkata store was relaunched in November.
The Kolkota-based designer’s shows are studded with Bollywood celebrities who swear by him, yet he inspired regular women to return to a “Sabyasachi style” simplicity, which was almost severe in its approach, with a focus on textiles. “I admire the woman who has the guts to come out without heels, and simply be herself,” he said.
Describing himself simply as a “recluse,” and stating matter-of-factly, “I am first a businessman,” Sabyasachi spoke with WWD about his success, the evolving market and the changing Indian consumer.
