Inspired by Calcutta, the limited edition collection of fine eyewear brings together the hallmarks of India’s leading luxury house Sabyasachi, with the master craftsmanship of Morgenthal Frederics. Coded to create modern heirlooms and handcrafted in classically unique silhouettes and colours—Sabyasachi X Morgenthal Frederics is a tribute to heritage, culture and craft.
The club culture of Calcutta. Private codes of sophistication, modernity and classic glamour. Of lounging men and ladies playing mahjong in starched saris. Old world opulence—restored and reclaimed.
“True luxury is handcrafted. Everything else is just a commodity.”
A poet’s muse and the traveller’s camp. A street in Calcutta of drifters and dreamers, artists and rebels. Packed with lazy sun-soaked cafés, vinyl records and leather bound books—the easy elegance of wisdom and the constant hum of counter culture.
“The beautiful thing about working in a creative industry are the kindred spirits you meet along the way. Brands and people who find their way to each other through shared values for craft, sustainability and excellence.”
1974. The rebellious Calcuttan. Amore Libero all along the hippie trail. Flower power, euphoric communes and wayward dreams. An era of chaos, style and icons.
Meticulously crafted over hundreds of hours and finished to perfection. Morgenthal Frederics worked closely with Sabyasachi, to interpret a distinct vision to create something timeless and classic, yet authentic and rooted.
Featuring Morgenthal Frederics’ signature mastery of natural materials paired with the finest Japanese titanium, this special limited edition collection elevates handcrafted eyewear. Each frame is carefully sculpted by expert artisans with hand-painted enamel on the temples and hand-placed inserts on the lenses. In unique colours like burnt black horn and colour pairings like creme horn with matte honey gold—the design is visionary and execution unparalleled.
While the focus on exceptional craftsmanship is uncompromised, the collection is environmentally friendly with the production process using renewable energy and sustainable materials. Each heirloom quality piece is finished flawlessly with the iconic Sabyasachi logo.
