The wedding season is back. If that mere sentence gave you the heebie jeebies then here’s a cure! It’s called, Wedding Suite by Christian Louboutin! Opened last month in the designer’s Indian flagship at Mumbai’s Horniman Circle, the space is already attracting both the bridal party and groomsmen in droves. That might have something to do with its array of special services besides women and men’s Spring Summer ‘14 bridal collections that include bags and small leather goods.
Situated on the first floor of the boutique, the suite puts a luxurious spin on the Great Indian Wedding tradition. By involving a spiral staircase – classic princess take – amidst the building’s original colonial arches, the bridal space signals the perfect prelude to the wedding-of-your-dreams making it more than the myth that it is considered. Trust only monsieur Louboutin to give such a twist to trousseau shopping in the nation. And kudos to the flagship for execution- white lacquered walls and hand-carved wooden screens, et al!
Speaking of, there’s also a sari table for the bride to place her garment upon while finding the perfect accessories to match. Accessories that include one-of-a-kind shoes, which can be created with clients’ own personal touch! During this process they may select fabric, heel height and a style to match to match their wardrobe. “Once the customer decides on the perfect pair, the shoes will be made by hand in the brand’s atelier in Paris.”
There is yet another bespoke concept, born from the designer’s admiration for the art of tattooing and caters to both male and female clients. Kicking the mehendi tradition up by several notches, the Tattoo Made to Measure is a unique experience that offers the a choice of three embroidery techniques which can be employed to bring personal tattoos, or uniquely designed graphics by Louboutin to life. Clearly, customs have come a long way, all thanks to some Parisian pizzazz.
