This makes the partnership of our iconic luxury brand Taj and Tata CLiQ Luxury’s The Luxe Life the perfect collaboration of change-makers in the luxury Indian market, paving the path for the global luxury consumer.”
A Mercedes-Benz installation will also be displayed at the event, reflecting the brand’s core driving pillars. This sculpture has been made by repurposing 200 Mercedes-Benz hubcaps that envelope the central figure in a fluid form, reinforcing a human connection. The artist, Little Shilpa, places them in conversation with dynamic, vivid shapes that convey “Desire for the Extraordinaire”.
Talking about the installation, Shilpa Chavan, said, “I’m excited to present the luxury totem ERRE, an installation I designed for Mercedes-Benz, at Tata CLiQ Luxury’s The Luxe Life: Edition 3. ERRE was designed to bring to life the brand’s three primary driving pillars: sustainability, desire, and innovation. The head piece consists of wheels that move in two directions: backward and forward, signifying the past and future. With this installation, we want to drive home the message that we can move into the future on the foundation of our experience and learnings.”
