August 11, 2017: Christian Louboutin is adding a casual Parisian style to the Autumn/Winter 2017 collection. The new shoes cross gender lines by offering oxfords, loafers and booties in a variety of styles suited to fit the modern woman. The new Monana, or Monono for men, loafers are available in a combination of black, red and white in addition to an all-black version made with ultra-fine, hand-stitched chain details and a “loubi-Coin” in the shoe. Laperouza reappears in this collection with a gold bullion embroidered Christian Louboutin crest. On the Mi Corazon slipper and Perou Corazon, each has a three-dimensional heart inspired by Mexican ex voto, which is hand-embroidered in rouge and golden cannetile embroidery. Lug soles return to the women’s collection, offered across a range of dynamic oxfords and chalet-ready booties. The rubber soles, produced alongside the men’s versions, are newly adapted for lightness and increased flexibility, with a shape crafted for a woman’s foot. Oxfords styles Hubertus Donna and Charletta don artisanal details including broguing and light ornamentation, while Crapadonna takes on an intricate floral motif inspired by Moorish murals, in laser cut patent calf contrasted to a crosta suede base. For cooler temperatures, the The Chasse a Clou, Fanny and Mad Boot have shearling linings, fur trim and spike embellishments. Shop new arrivals from Autumn/Winter 2017 styles at Christian Louboutin boutiques around the world, and online at ChristianLouboutin.com beginning mid-July.
