Christian Louboutin was brought up in a working class neighbourhood in Paris by his mother and three sisters. He credits this feminine environment as the inspiration for much of his work together with the exotic and sensual Parisian world he later discovered.
The inimittable style of Christian’s shoes with their jewel-encrusted heels, sexy and light-hearted designs appeal to an ultra-feminine audience; the red sole is eye-catching, while the clear lines and perfect finish perpetuate the tradition of a luxury shoe designed to evoke the charm of a bygone era.
The shoes are still made in Italy and created in Christian’s design studio in Paris, but the abiding inspiration is still found in a 1950’s image – its reincarnation with that unforgettable red sole.
