Christian Louboutin and Indian Haute Couture Brand Sabyasachi

Cooperation launch limited high-definition series

These exquisite shoes and bags, like a piece of art, will also be on display at ART021.


In October 2017, French senior footwear designer Christian Louboutin is pleased to announce the exclusive launch of men’s and women’s shoes and small leather goods. The series will be hand-made sari material, with the design of the close partner, Indian Haute Couture designer Sabyasachi Mukherjee created.

“India’s craftsmanship is among the best in the world. The luxury of Indian craftsmanship is even more extreme. I hope that other countries outside of India can love crafts here as much as I do.” – Christian Louboutin.

Christian Louboutin has been depicting fairy tales full of magical colors. This time, the two met in Mukherjee’s studio in Mumbai, more like real world fairy tales. The two designers are full of creativity, favoring India’s broad culture, exquisite handicrafts and food culture, and soon become good friends.

“India has been beating the heart of luxury since ancient times. Cooperation with Christians has re-established the tradition of clothing, integrating our craftsmanship with his philosophy, and creating unique happiness for the cultural birds. — Sabyasachi Mukherjee”

In July 2015, Christian Louboutin created the annual Haute Couture Fashion Show shoes for Sabyasachi in Mumbai. This is also the first time the two designers are happy and creative. In October 2016, Louboutin again provided footwear for Sabyasachi’s annual big show, while also adding a small amount of exquisite bags to shoes.

Afterwards, Louboutin received an invitation to visit Calbee, his hometown of Sabyasachi, to visit his collection of saris and ribbons. Seeing this, Christian is sad – so beautiful material must be a prisoner of darkness here? “We made these beautiful embroidery beautiful shoes and dance all night!” said Louboutin. “However, these sarees can no longer be duplicated, and some stocks are still very small, so I am afraid we can not mass production,” Sabyasachi reminded him. “I would rather only do two pairs of shoes and I would not like to leave such a beautiful material here for a long time,” said Louboutin.

As a result, the two designers decided to show this unparalleled beauty to the world, so that people outside of India can enjoy the country’s beautiful materials and exquisite craftsmanship.

In this limited edition series, it includes a sophisticated and elegant over-the-knee boots. The silky leather straps gently wrap the legs and show leg curves from the bottom up. This boots, named Tall and Deep, is just right. The world’s limited number of 8 pairs is tailor-made.

The designer used Sabyasachi’s sari ribbon to create 90 unique Piloutin handbags, making it the world’s most precious “small pillow”. The designer also created cute Poupette pendants for handbags, decorated with embroidered ribbons and crystals, and expressed the declaration of love to the Bollywood actress designed by Sabyasachi.
