Insolent, glamourous, refined: three adjectives that describe the design of Louboutin's gorgeous creations perfectly. As well as their collections of leather goods and cosmetic lines, the fashion house is famous the world over for its ultra-sophisticated footwear. Timeless stilettos with scarlet soles, dainty sandals or trendy sneakers, Louboutin designs are the ultimate symbol of French luxury shoemaking.
Coveted by stars.
It all began with the vision of one man, namely Christian Louboutin, genius designer of shoes who undertook to make women look and feel sublime by creating footwear with contours that were light-hearted, artistic. Founded in the early 1990's, the French fashion house rapidly became highly sought-after by stars, its glamourous models of footwear making their appearance on red carpets everywhere. It is their ethereal lines and meticulous finishing that make Louboutin shoes lustworthy items, not to mention those fascinating red soles. The flamboyant red lacquered soles that have become the label's signature, transform a beautiful pair of shoes into a veritable work of art.
Headed up by its masterful founder, the luxury fashion house today embodies the quintessence of femininity. Its sensuous and extravagant designs have inspired all the leading couturiers. The most prestigious labels including Givenchy, Chloé and even Alexander McQueen have put Louboutins on their catwalks during their fashion shows. Dazzling sandals, shoes with studded detailing and Pigalles - the legendary patent leather high-heels - every season, the designer rethinks the label's iconic models, as well as creating new designs. Apart from the heels for which he is famous, Christian Louboutin also designs lines of luxury sneakers, ingeniously combining glamour with streetwear, adeptly rerouted with great creativity.
Shoes at the height of sophistication.
From the very start, high-heels were must-have pieces in the offering of the French brand, often associated with vertiginous stilettos, defining the silhouette of a femme fatale. The shoemaker is also constantly rethinking the design of its ballet pumps, mules, boots and ankle boots, each model becoming instantly coveted by fashionistas everywhere. As well as its iconic patent leather high-heels, the fashion house distinguishes itself through its creations made with exceptional materials and finishings, including python skin, lace, fur and silk. Platforms or dainty stilettos adorned with studs, jazzy prints, classic buckles and the famous scarlet sole, Louboutin shoes come in countless versions and their sensuality is limitless.
Raising his creations to the rank of works of art, Louboutin has successfully imposed his vision in the world of luxury goods, with almost every design becoming a cult piece. Glamourous-looking high-heels may hold eternal fascination, but the French shoe designer has a surprise in store for us with each new collection, using materials and shapes with an urban vibe, proving its quest for perpetual modernity.
