See why we’re here for Christian Louboutin x Sabyasachi collaboration

Not all capsule collections are created equal. So when designers Christian Louboutin and Sabyasachi Murkehjee decided to combine their creativity, we all new we were in store for something dreamy. Paris and Kolkata merge into an ultra-exclusive, limited edition capsule collection that includes new editions, reimagined Louboutin classics, and made-to-measure pieces crafted from Sabyasachi’s personal collection of luxurious sari fabrics. Scroll below to see more from the Christian Louboutin x Sabyasachi collaboration.

The two met by chance at a Sabyasachi’s Mumbai boutique. Eventually their like-mindedness evolved into a spontaneous alliance. Louboutin created magnificent shoes for Sabyasachi’s Mumbai runway show in 2015 and 2016. Fast forward to 2017 and the two have now dreamed up handbags and women’s and men’s shoes in unexpected colors, textures and layering.

As Louboutin explains:

Featured in the collection are nearly a dozen Women’s shoe styles, including an exquisite thigh-high boot crafted with delicate leather strips designed to harness and highlight the leg. Aptly named Tall and Deep, a very few pairs will be available worldwide as an exclusive, made-to-measure item.

The men’s pieces decidedly took a new spin on select Louboutin classics. Dandelion loafer gets adorned in embroidered toe-cap that references the traditional opulence of Indian wedding shoes.
