What happens when some of our favourite designers collaborate with others? You get exquisite creations that are a result of not one but two creative minds! We absolutely love the idea of designer collaborations and we’re sure you will love them too.
1. A Louvre Story: Sabyasachi & Louboutin
Nope, this is not a typo. It is a romance that began in Louvre, Paris.
Once upon a time, an Italian shoe maverick met an Indian bride whisperer for lunch. They met in a restaurant in Louvre to discuss food & passion. What it led to was a happy ending in a one-of-a-kind luxurious collaboration.
Sabyasachi’s intricate embroidery marries Louboutin’s signature spikes to give us the best of both worlds! India is about to witness a sacred union of opulence & craftsmanship.
We think these are just what you need to up your wedding/party season swag this year-end!
Where: Christian Louboutin, Mumbai & Delhi
