Allow us to use the age-old cliché here for nothing is more fitting: time flies. When you are as successful as Parisian Christian Louboutin, keeping track of how many years you have serviced the fashion industry is as dispensable as a pair of grills. But indeed, it already has been an illustrious 20 years since the master shoe designer first captured our soles with his exquisite craftsmanship and impeccable style. Louboutin has kept pace with the competitive industry, consistent in quality while remaining conscious to the changing taste of women.
To celebrate this milestone, the Parisian footwear designer is launching the 20th Anniversary Capsule Collection, a 20-piece lineup of reinvented Louboutin classics which revolve around his varied passions and inspirations. “His love for art, architecture, fine arts and design, his lifelong fascination with the world of showgirls and cabaret, his passion for travel and a deep admiration for craftsmanship are all elements that are displayed throughout the collection.”
Louboutin fans will find the line refreshing, as the designer offers a bit of everything. There are thigh-high boots, embellished flats, floral wedges, spiked platforms, zipper-adorned stilettos and a classic black pump with chunky gold heels.
The collection has been published in the designer’s Facebook page, where eager fans can browse the styles before it is made available for purchase. The collection will be first deployed on a European online boutique, then an exclusive pop-up shop in Selfridges from February 27 and finally at Christian Louboutin stores from March.
