This is the second time the designers have come together after their debut collaborative line 'Bater', launched last year in July.
"The range is evolving. When we met for the first time, we organically decided that we want to do collaboration together. There were no real roots, or contracts. We just said that let's work together and that is how we started," said Sabyasachi.

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 added: "It is more of a candy store."
Echoing a similar view, Sabyasachi said: "I don't believe in building 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."

The Christian Louboutin X Sabyasachi collection will be available at Christian Louboutin stores in Delhi and Mumbai. The collection will also travel internationally.
