Designer Sabyasachi Mukherjee’s clothing lines hardly have any problems when it comes to stealing the limelight at various fashion shows. However, he outdid himself at last year’s Amazon India Couture Week, with everyone falling head over heels in love with the shoes featured in his show.
Mukherjee had collaborated with the legendary Christian Louboutin to produce five beautiful types of shoes each for men and women. 80 limited edition pairs graced the ramp, but none were available for sale.
Now, the shoes are available at the French designer's boutiques in India, for a pretty penny of course. The women's Devibroda that sports signature Sabyasachi techniques of acid-dyed burnt sequins and tea-dyed cotton threads on the heels is priced at ₹50,000, while the Victoria heel that features burnt zardozi and vintage Parsi gara is priced at ₹90,000.
The Dandelion for men, priced at ₹80,000, also showcases parsi gara, as well as motifs of the paradise flycatcher bird, being an attempt by the designers to marry the grandeur of Indian Maharajas to European couture. The most expensive of the men's lot are the Dandy Flats, which are priced at ₹2.3 lakh.
