ONE OF OUR FAVORITE DESIGNERS FINDS INSPIRATION IN COURTLY GEORGIAN GLAMOUR
BY KIMBERLY LANDAU
Christian Louboutin’s 2018 summer collection shows off the designer’s ultra-glam inclinations just when we need them most the season of exposed extremities and longing glances. His new line encompasses bold, ostentatious designs which reflect the French shoe guru’s famously free-spirited energy. Inspired by the opulence of life in a château, “for summer, we’re enchanted by a fairytale of bygone royalty,” Louboutin revealed in a press statement about the new work. “Matched with the finest accoutrements of the Georgian era, we dip our toes into its lavish lifestyle.”
Degrastrass Clear Embellished Pump
This stunning ombré pointy toe 100mm (4-inch) “Cinderella” stiletto has gorgeous crystals moving upward from the toe to the heel, making them glimmer from every angle. Its metallic heel adds a pop from the back, and the iconic red sole lends a seducing vividness to each step. The perfect pump for a black tie occasion or wedding, or even to style with jeans for a night on the town. Made in Italy.
Vero Dodat Metallic Clutch
Named after the covered arcade that housed Louboutin’s first boutique, this signature clutch is a beautiful accessory with its shimmering silver metallic hues. It features a magnetic flap closure and an optional drop-in chain strap. The red sole logo ornament adds a nice touch, as does the iconic red lining. Styles wonderfully for a formal affair or an evening out. Made in Italy.
