Popular French luxury designer Christian Louboutin announced the launch of an exclusive collection of shoes and small leather goods created of handcrafted sari fabrics from the archives of Indian designer Sabyasachi Mukherjee.
“India has been at the heart of luxury since the age of the Maharajas. Working with Christian revisits that couture tradition, connecting our handicrafts with his eclectic point of view to create bespoke delights for cultural magpies,” said Sabyasachi.
“Indian handicraft is the best of the best in the world. The luxuriance of Indian workmanship is at the maximum. I would love the world outside of India to love it as I do,” Louboutin said in a statement.
Women’s shoe styles includes 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 collection launched exclusively at Harrods, on October 11
