Sabyasachi X Christian Louboutin Is A Collaboration Made In Accessory Heaven
Fashion advocates from the Indian circuit will concur that the one designer collection everyone looks forward to, season after season is that of Sabyasachi Mukherjee. If you’re to recall the opening night of the Amazon India Couture Week 2015, the Sabyasachi X Christian Louboutin collaboration featuring a goth-inspired line titled Bater was iconic. Obviously, that’s bound to happen when two stalwarts from the fashion industry team up. And it’s happened again. In a second collaboration, Indian designer Sabyasachi Mukherjee partnered with renowned French footwear designer Christian Louboutin to showcase a Fall/Winter 2016 collection named Firdaus.
In his sprawling store at Mehrauli, the designer showcased an ostentatious wedding collection that included kaftans, velvet lehengas, sherwanis, high-waisted skirts and more. The luxe outfits were accompanied by bridal accessories that ranged from flats to sky-high heels and even clutches by Louboutin. A collection with a “hipster meets steam punk meets whimsical baroque” vibe, Firdaus comprised of materials that ranged from raffia, cork, leather, pony hair and intricate embroidery sourced from all over India.
Embroidered loafers with spiked toe caps for men and ankle-strap peep toes with a spiked platform and embellished heels for women… these were just two of the many stunning displays from this collection. The bespoke range saw the use of both designers’ signature styles: Sabya’s embroidery and embellishments (especially spikes) by Louboutin. Think all of Fall’s essential elements — velvet, fringes, fur, and floral motifs –and you’d notice it as part of this impressive collab. To be honest, these are what accessory dreams are made of.
