Christian Louboutin is one of the few designers in the world who exists effortlessly. There is no gimmick to the brand; no advertising. It’s simply the design that sells. Well, that and the fabulous lifestyle associated with the brand, thanks to the legion of celebrities who bare their soles for louboutin. From the femme fatale to the timid temptress, his shoes transform the ordinary girl to extraordinary woman.
In 1989 he launched his own line. At first, it was only sophisticated Parisian women, who sported his soles. But it didn’t take long before the likes of Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell started sporting his soles. The world fashionistas soon caught on. The love shoes, from his debut collection, became one of the most coveted items of the 90s. The sexy stilettos with the letters “LO” on one shoes and “VE “on the other are now fashion legends.
His latest collection” is really a mixture of different ideas. This season you will see a lot of fur, buckles, super high heels, different fabrics and really bold shoes that are the centerpiece of an outfit. I am always thinking ahead towards my next collection. I design every pair of shoes myself and oversee its creation. That’s what my clients like about my collections.”
Yet that is the beauty of Louboutin’s designs: the flawless cuts, colours and styles do not overwhelm. Instead they’re the perfect final touch, the red cherry on top of your outfit… and your life. Enjoy the collection.
