Any true shoe diva knows the meaning of the red sole. Christian Louboutin Shoes are the souls of the shoe world. The elite status of footwear.
Louboutin shoes are incredibly beautiful shoes. They are high heel marvels. Who is the designer behind these shoes? A man who knows women and appreciates and understand why they love in shoes.
Christian Louboutin was born in Paris, France. The only male of three sisters. Always an independent spirit he ran away at 12 and started his journey without a formal education.
His fascination with shoes began in 1976 when he visited the Musee national des Arts d'Afrique et d' Oceanie. He decided that he wanted to create something that would break the rules, make a woman fee empowered and confident.
1981 Christian assembled his portfolio of high heels and got a job with Charles Jourdan. He proceeded to become an apprentice with Roger Viver design house. Christian designed shoes for Chanel, Yves Saint Laurent and Maud Frizen.
During the late 80's he turned his back on fashion and became a landscape gardener.
Surprising?? not really for Christian was and remains a man who goes with his gut. Shoe designing at this point in his life was not an option. So he quit!...just like that!
1991 Christian Louboutin opened Christian Louboutin Shoes in Paris. His first client was Princess Caroline of Monaco.
Once the word was out that Princess Caroline loved his footwear other celebrities and socialites began to appreciate the gifted artist. Diane Von Furstenberg and Catherine Denevue became clients.
Since this was the 90's stilettos were slowly coming back into the lime light. Christian made stilettos the "IT" shoes by the year 2000.
His shoes brought back sexy and danger for women. Heels teetering at 4.72 inches (120mm) and higher made women want to experience the height. Sex in the City was at it's prime and who didn't see or want to try their Christian Louboutin shoes?
Christian Louboutin shoes are associated with elegant evening wear. His usage of incorporating jeweled straps, feathers, bows and shiny patent leathers are unique and beautiful. His shoes are almost too pretty to wear.
I believe he sees his shoes as his children and they are precious to him. This would explain why he never gives his shoes away. Louboutin will offers discounts, but will never freely give his shoes away. Ass he so eloquently put it "it's so unimaginative"..
On July 5, 2012 Christian unveiled the Cinderella Glass Slipper. A crystal and lace masterpiece. Featuring delicate butterflies that appear to landed eloquently on the shoes.
Producing only 20 pairs that will be given away worldwide. Disney invited Christian to create a modern day version of Cinderella's famous glass slipper.
With the release of Cinderella on Blue Ray this fall Disney deemed a wonderful way to pay tribute to this classic.
A pair of Christian Louboutin shoes are like owning a piece of art. They are beautiful, impressionable and subjective.
No two people view his shoes as "just a high heel". They bring joy to the eyes and they just look so darn good! Owning a pair creates a blissful happiness for you and a cloud of envy for others.
