The sole mention of the name is enough to easily recognize the brand in question. Christian Louboutin isn’t only a women’s shoes designer: he embodies the world of women’s footwear. The 12cm heels and red lacquer soles are his stylistic signature that make a Christian Louboutin shoe easy to spot. The iconic So Kate and the Pigalle are only two of the stiletto models that have woven this shoe’s print into world history. But let’s start from the beginnings: Christian Louboutin was born in Paris in 1963 to a cabinetmaker father from whom he inherited the craftsmanship and the attention to detail. After getting expelled from school, he worked for the Folies Bergèr cabaret, but already at the age of 13 he started obsessively designing women’s shoes. In the 1990s he opened his atelier in Paris, where the first client was Princess Caroline of Monaco, which ensured immediate success. Fame came sudden and unexpected and his shoes defined a sexy feminine woman. In 1993 came the breakthrough: while watching a colleague paint her nails red, he had the fortunate intuition to do the same with the soles of his shoes. And so, every pair of Christian Louboutin shoes, either heels of flats, have been thus distinguished ever since.
Style icons, fit for royals under every aspect, Christian Louboutin stilettos stand out for their refined and unique style that combines class and sex appeal in models that can easily be considered timeless. Available in a range of colours, the precious stilettos are set apart not only by the soles, but also for the magnificent craftsmanship, and a style that matches perfectly with high end classy outfits.
