Designers Sabyasachi Mukherjee and Christian Louboutin have just embarked on a  whirlwind world tour. The duo will be travelling to London, New York, Los Angeles, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Tokyo, Dubai, and Paris, between 11 October and 19 November this year, exhibiting their collaborative collection.

They first met by coincidence a few years ago, at Sabyasachi’s Kala Ghoda Mumbai store, a quaint world with charming walls full of framed carpets and ceramic plates, chandeliers, giant clocks, ittar bottles and other traditional items. Mukherjee’s aesthetics is one of strong traditionalism and glamour, making his work a favourite in Indian cinema. The unusual fabrics, materials and embroidery he uses are vivacious and often handcrafted.

At that time, Louboutin was merely visiting the store, when Mukherjee outright asked Louboutin if he would make the shoes for Mukerjee’s couture fashion shows in India. Louboutin had agreed. They began to work together, with Louboutin integrating his shoes in Mukherjee’s collections in July 2015 and then again in 2016.

Louboutin had been delighted to find in Mukherjee’s atelier archive, a variety of cut offs from exquisite materials, beads, ribbons, sarees, and much more. This provided him enough inspiration and material to create an entire collection of shoes! The flourishing work relationship between the two had already led to the idea of them collaborating on a combined collection.

The two designers decided to make a mosaic of bits and pieces of this material, to create an exclusive range of 15 women’s shoe styles and four menswear shoe styles. The combined collection also marks the 25th year of the Louboutin label.

Their styles are similar in the sense that they both celebrate exuberance. Louboutin’s distinct red soles and Sabyasachi’s profusely embroidered lush garments are both unmistakably their’s alone.
