Hermes has launched a limited edition sari collection, just in time for Diwali. The first luxury brand to create a garment that is intrinsically Indian, Hermes recognizes the booming luxury market in India (set to grow 20% each year).
The saris are meant to be comfortable and are made from fine materials like cashmere and silk. The collection includes four types of saris like ‘New Springs’, in mousseline; ‘Fleurs Indiennes’, in double mousseline, ‘Coupons Indiens’, in cashmere and silk and ‘Patch’, in silk twill for the Indian summer and winter.
The prints on these saris are similar to those on the contemporary Hermes scarves. Each piece has the Hermès ‘roulotté’ edge, meticulous handiwork that takes up to 9 hours for the double mousseline sari.
So if you have around $6,000 to $8,000 USD burning a hole in your fur-lined leather bag, you’re in luck.
The sari’s are available at their Mumbai store.
