SABYASACHI

India Today - - COVER STORY -

Walk into the Sabyasachi store at Ban­jara Hills and you are sure to come away over­whelmed with the art that greets you from ev­ery cor­ner— from an­tique clocks to taste­fully de­signed lamp­shades, from framed black and white photographs to the dimly lit pas­sage filled with ele- gant knick knacks such as an­tique pieces from the Nizam of Hy­der­abad’s crock­ery and a man­i­cure set of the Nizam’s begum! On the first floor of the store is a ta­ble for two where you can or­der cof­fee and cook­ies from a small menu served in ex­quis­ite crock­ery.

The mot­ley lamp­shades are also de­signed by Sabyasachi him­self. The de­signer saris done up in a taste­ful range of eclec­tic fab-

rics that de­fine his sig­na­ture style— net with silk or chif­fons and geor­gettes and tusser silk— are art­works in their own selves.

In­sider’s tip If you like a lehenga but would like want the em­bel­lish­ment work on it to be repli­cated on an anarkali in­stead, it can be done pro­vided Sabyasachi is con­vinced.

Must pick The broad ban­gles with in­tri­cate mo­tifs in flo­ral pat­terns crafted in fab­ric by Sabyasachi. At Road No 10, Ban­jara Hills Tel 66565156
