Asylum was commissioned to produce Faberge eggs for the opening of Christian Louboutin’s Mount Street store in London.
We designed and initially produced one large enough to take a 5ft 6in mannequin. We then produced a smaller sized unit in a variety of different colours to display the beautifully crafted shoes.
The eggs were covered in embroidered gold over a brightly coloured two-pack finish, and the interior was lined with a padded buttoned silk. The larger eggs had spinning footplates giving a 360-degree music box-like view.
These became so popular that we produced several ranges in different colours that display his shoes throughout the world.
