Sabyasachi goes ‘whimsical’ for new line with Christian Louboutin
New Delhi, Nov 14 (IANS) India’s famous couturier Sabyasachi Mukherjee has joined hands with Christian Louboutin yet again. The French designer says the collection is just like a walk into a candy store, but for Sabyasachi it has a whimsical feel.
This is the second time the designers are coming together. Their first collaborative line was titled ‘Bater’, which was launched last year in July.
This time, the collection of women’s and men’s shoes and bags, is stamped with their signature styles and infused with glamour.
“The range is evolving. When we met for the first time, we organically decided that we want to do a collaboration together. There were no real roots, or contracts. We just said that let’s work together and that is how we started,” Sabyasachi told IANS.
Sabyasachi said that after “a small little range”, they have expanded the collection.
Last year, ‘Bater’ was a dark and Gothic affair with sexual hints. This time, the range is a little bit of everything.
“This is a lot more whimsical and quite mad. We have everything in it. It has a little bit of everything,” Sabyasachi said.
To that, Louboutin said: “It is more of a candy store.”
Echoing similar view, Sabyasachi said: “I don’t believe in building and collections anymore. I think you should build specific things for specific people. So there is a goth element to it, there is a rock star element to it, there is travel element to it, there is something very simple and conservative, there is something very sexy, there is something practical and then there is something completely insane.”
