Christian Louboutin celebrates 20 years with Capsule Collection
March 24, 2012: Christian Louboutin, the revered French shoe brand, is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year. What better way to do it than recreating 20 iconic shoes and bags which have swooned women all over?
This edited collection is a look at twenty years of the work of Louboutin and embodies the central themes that have come to define his craft. Louboutin’s designs use unique materials, shapes and colours in an ingenious way. His mastery of playing with proportions, taking shoes to new heights and the ever-present flirtation with the world of fetishism, have over time solidified a unique identity. There are, however, only a few of these iconic products which are coming to their new store in India.
Pensee, for example, is revered by its maker Christian Louboutin as “the shoe that inspired the red sole”. The Copt sandal, on the other hand, is an essential Louboutin piece which had its inception in Egypt. It was inspired by a Coptic cross once bought from a local artisan from the Valley of the Queens in Luxor.
Other iconic pieces that are available in their store in DLF Emporio are BowBow, Lady Gres and the Artemis Shoemania bag.
