Holiday wardrobe vibes

H&M first global collaboration with the iconic Indian label, Sabyasachi was announced recently. The Sabyasachi x H&M collaboration themed ‘Wanderlust’ will present rich textiles in modern as well as classic Indian silhouettes that resonate with the global nomad mindset. The collection consists of both womenswear and menswear and will be available in selected H&M stores around the world and online at from today, 12 August.

Be sure to be near your laptop on launch day as it will be online only in Ireland meaning you can pick all your favourite pieces from the comfort of your own home.

“I am happy to announce the new date for the collaboration with H&M, as it gives us the opportunity to spread the Sabyasachi aesthetic to a wider audience in India and worldwide. Due to the complexities of the Covid-19 situation, we had to put the collaboration on hold but I’m eagerly looking forward to launching this ready-to-wear collection that will bring relaxed sophistication to everyday life in an understated yet glamorous style,” said Sabyasachi.

The collection features pieces that you could wear at home or abroad and are the type of items that wouldn’t look out of place poolside or for those days where you want to lounge around your house, but you still want to look a bit glam and put together.

The prints are bold yet chic but never overwhelming. You can choose to mix one piece in with some neutrals or layer them together to create a more dramatic look. There’s not only clothing available but a gorgeous selection of accessories too and I have my eye on some beautiful jewellery including a bejeweled belt that would look amazing worn over a simple dress and a fabulous range of tote bags to hold all your bits and pieces in style.

Ella Soccorsi, Concept Designer at Collaborations & Special Collections, H&M, said: “At H&M, we are thrilled to be able to announce the new date for our collaboration with iconic Indian designer Sabyasachi.

“At a time like this, we believe people value the use of homegrown crafts and textiles more than ever and that’s something no one can do better than Sabyasachi. We look forward to bringing this stunning collection to as many people across the globe as we can.”

In soothing rich fabrics, the collection is the perfect modern statement, filled with glamourous loungewear for fashion lovers who want a chic yet eclectic ensemble. Indian textile and print traditions are key highlights of this collection, which are brought to life by the Sabyasachi Art Foundation, meticulously crafted and featuring embroidery in multicultural silhouettes. If eclectic, bohemian style is your thing then this collection is definitely for you.

The Sabyasachi x H&M collection will offer a complete fashion wardrobe for both women and men, including accessories.
