Hermes to launch limited edition $1,800 sarees in India in October

The latest and one of the most notable plunge is being made by the French luxury brand Hermes, that is all set to launch a limited edition collection of four to five silk saris in India in coming October.Priced at $1,800 (Rs 81,000 plus taxes, of course) with another $500 for a matching blouse, the ensemble would cost a tad less than the first collection.

The sarees are designed by Sunita Kumar, wife of former Indian tennis player Naresh Kumar along with Hermes’ in-house designers. The six yard drapes were earlier retailed at Hermes’ London store in Sloane Street in October 2000. The Kolkata-based designer got this chance as Hermes’ chief Jean-Louis Dumas had seen a saree that Kumar made by sewing many Hermes scarves together.
