A 'Deconstructed Maharani Necklace' from the Sabyasachi Calcutta x Bergdorf Goodman "Bengal Byzantine Broadway" collection

He turned at my tap and smiled at my smile. The soft demeanor of Sabyasachi Mukherjee is pleasant and unexpected, given the strong statement pieces he creates. He is clad in all-white--symbolic of the American wedding--but shaped in a simple tunic-and-trouser silhouette representative of Indian culture. For a designer whose brand outfits Bollywood and stands as one of India's most admired purveyors of bridal fashion, ego and fame do not eclipse a cold conversation or an impromptu photo-op.

Bracelets up close

Inspired by an instagram post, I impulsively stop into Bergdorf Goodman during my weekend wanderings and encounter Sabyasachi— happenstance. As I stroll through the street-level Jewelry Salon, rotations of clientele cycle through the cove of luxe treasures. A museum-like display showcases the bespoke accessories made of uncut stones, set in the jadu technique (without adhesive). Each piece is a unique interpretation of Indian tradition, elevating—not modernizing, but editing—the cultural aesthetic. For Sabyasachi, his designs become a form of inclusive storytelling, empowering the wearer to embrace Indian heritage in their own way. The “Bengal Byzantine Broadway" collection is available at Bergdorf Goodman’s Jewelry Salon until September 22nd.
