Christian Louboutin’s collections are a perfect marriage of Parisian glamour and Italian craftsmanship. The story of the signature rouge soles of the shoes reflects the designer’s flamboyant and creative personality – when working in his studio in the ‘90s, he grabbed a bottle of red nail polish from his assistant Sarah and painted a shoe’s sole. Louboutin was inspired deeply by a Parisian underground club brimming with flamboyant, crazy individuals with unique personalities, both heavyweights and commoners. Christian Louboutin evolved from creating pumps for performers, selling them door-to-door directly in theatres to making his mark in the luxury accessories world with jewel-studded stilettos to light-hearted designs, worn by the likes of Modonna, Nicole Kidman, Carline de Monaco, Arielle Dombasle and Dita Von Teese. His famous red soles, structured lines and impeccable detailing show off his incredible craftsmanship. Famous for the dazzle and glamour of his designs and inspired by the his travels combined with and a taste for different materials and objects from all around the world that he collects during his travels, Louboutin’s have become the most iconic fashion must-haves.
