One of the most fashionable men in fashion, who prides himself on making women’s feet sexy, who pioneered the foot cleavage and who is credited with bringing the stiletto back into fashion in the 1990’s, Christian Louboutin, celebrated his landmark 20th anniversary last week.
The shoe designing legend marked the occasion by gifting his fashion following with a shrine to his remarkable creations at Selfridges in London. Louboutin has designed a decadent pop-up concept store and created a distinctive capsule collection of 20 of his perfectly crafted red-soled shoes as well as six handbags, and for the first time a men’s range to showcase to the masses.
Louboutin’s latest shoe collection will feature Spring/Summer 2012 stand out designs as well as iconic favourites from decades past. This legendary selection will include the signature Love Heel high stiletto, the ultra-sleek red and black flamenco sandals, whimsical point toe flats; his rock inspired studded platform and many more to sink your teeth into-perfect to team with your day/evening Little Black Dress! These recognizable designs show how the brand has evolved and progressed over time, which has helped secure their place among fashion’s elite whilst also giving us here at Team LBD shoes to truly obsess over.
Throughout his career Christian Louboutin had fused his passion for shoes and boundless creativity to truly make a permanent indent on the industry. The capsule collection represents a tidal wave of style and luxury that has helped define the brand from its early days. Speaking of his anniversary the designer said “In France, 20 years defines a generation……This is a celebration of the first generation of this brand; an anniversary of its first young adventure”.
