Christian Louboutin collaborating with Sabyasachi Mukherjee is a celebrated moment for us. Two of our favourite designers coming together to create magic.
Introducing one of the most amazing collaborations of the year and one I’m most excited to share. Christian Louboutin X Sabyasachi Mukherjee. Christian Louboutin’s collaboration with Sabyasachi Mukherjee is a celebrated moment at the StyleSociety. Two of our absolute favourite haute couture designers coming together to create some incredible magic. We are so excited to share these treasured pieces with our style tribe.
Christian Louboutin celebrates 25 years of his coveted eponymous label in style, collaborating with Indian haute couture designer Sabyasachi Mukherjee. The bespoke collection will include 15 women’s designs and 4 menswear designs.
This collection will be created using treasured cut-offs of sarees and ribbons from Mukherjee’s atelier archive, making each pair unique. This collaboration allowed Louboutin to get hands-on with Indian handcraft, which he calls the best in the world. We agree with Christian.
Handicrafts play a very significant role in representing the traditions and culture of any region or country. Rich traditional art forms and heritage are preserved in handicrafts. India has managed to preserve much of its artisans, its art and its handicrafts. And they are perhaps the finest in the world.
“What happened is that Mukherjee asked me if I could do shoes for his couture fashion shows in India, after we met randomly by accident in his Mumbai store. We started to collaborate, integrating my shoes in his shows and from that it was a natural step for me to do this collection.”– Christian Louboutin

“The luxuriance of Indian couture is unparalleled, things you see in India you see nowhere else, I wanted the world outside of India to love it as I do”
