Christian Louboutin for Sabyasachi Mukherjee collection now available
June 24, 2016: Christian Louboutin’s limited edition collection created in collaboration with fashion designer Sabyasachi Mukherjee, is now available at Christian Louboutin boutiques in New Delhi and Mumbai.
As seen at Amazon India Couture Week in July 2015, Sabyasachi’s Haute Couture collection "Bater," in reference to birds of prey, represented a mood that was dark. The collection was complemented by the collaboration between the two designers, leading to an amalgamation "Devibroda," an embellished women's sandal, which pays homage to Sita Devi of Baroda.
Made with Sabyasachi embroidery of acid-dyed burnt sequins and tea-dyed cotton threads, the sandals are embellished with French knots to create a fringe of hand-knotted sequins. The collection also includes the "Victoria" platform, which has been embellished with two of Sabyasachi's embroidery styles: burnt zardozi and vintage Parsi gara. The men's collection represents India's Maharajahs with contrasted European silhouettes. "Dandelion" stands with motifs of the Paradise flycatcher bird, created out of Parsi gara.
