Bling in my steps

Christian Louboutin and Sabyasachi have done it again! If their earlier collaborations are anything to go by, the latest collection from the masterminds is not surprising, not at least in its bling quotient. Handcrafted with opulent sari fabrics from the archives of Sabyasachi, the latest collection of women’s and men’s shoes and accessories is high on embellishments, patchworks, motifs and colours. Take for example, the thigh-high boot crafted with delicate leather strips; aptly named Tall and Deep is what we would love to walk in. Since there are a very few pairs available worldwide, we might have to hurry up to put a ring on it. To go with your blingy feet, the designers have also added evening bag to the line called the Piloutin. It actually looks like a precious pillow, and is created from Sabyasachi sari ribbons collection. 

Men! Despair not. The designers have something for you too. Take your pick from Dandelion loafers with an embroidered toe-cap, Louis Junior with its rich patchwork of motifs and colours.

What more, there is a graphic novel titled Deep Sleep for Beauty that tells the story of a beautiful Indian actress cast under a spell from which only the two designers have the ability to free her. You can buy the book at the stores that comes in special shoe boxes, custom-made for the collection. The story can be watched online at
