It’s that hint of red sole that makes every woman flutter and lust after these shoes, and there are no prizes for guessing that the sole in question is that of Christian Louboutin. 1992 saw the launch of the brand and first Louboutin boutique; if Mystic Meg had looked into her ball it might have blown up into shards as the future of this brand was set to be huge. At times his fall 2011 collection oozes glamour, style and ultimate chicness. At other times it’s over the top, bordering on the gaudy. If ever there was footwear created to fill you up more than a plate of drunkenly consumed fried-rice it’s a pair of Louboutins!
You’ll find all manner of styles amongst Christian Louboutin’s autumn / fall 2011 women’s collection. You have the clean cut court shoe for the sophisticated 9 to 5 girl. You have a bit of leopard print and pewter studding for the vixens. And you have the bold colours for those who want to be noticed (albeit there are some that go quite over the top). However, if that’s not your style there are a pair of almond coloured, laser-cut ankle boots with the most delicate of leather-lace detail and a bit of fur for good measure!
But such a breadth of options also can present something of a problem, and amongst Christian Louboutin autumn / fall 2011 offering are pieces whose statement accents are going to see many a nose turned up. They are by no means attempting to appeal to the masses; a fact that will be a part of their success.
