Ringing in the New Year with some noise, we introduce the Christian Louboutin Spring 2017 collection with styles taken from a treasure trove of effervescent colour, glitter, animal prints and striking jewelled embellishments. Pre-collection arrivals offer a bounty of choice, running the gamut from feminine ankle-strap stilettos to rugged lug sole ankle boots. Blocked heels, low and mid, are easy enough for day yet glamorous enough for night, all thanks to a luxurious mix of fabrications and a mixed medley of colourful, hand-crafted styles.
Laygoya 45, 85 steps-up in a signature Louboutin colourway of black and red with a new 1960s inspired graphic leopard print balanced on a white varnished heel. A contemporary bow is affixed atop the shoe, adding an extra dash of sass. Senoria 100 takes material mixing to new heights with a mash-up of leopard and ultra glamourous Glitex in Cassis in a classic t-strap, peep-toe d’Orsay.
Seductress, Riveraluna 100, blends rich veau velours with a cosmic acid trippy laminated leather by the name of Cosmo 3D. Final touches of custom jewel work decorate the toe. On a lower profile Oaxacana in 45 and 85 heel are inspired by Fellini’s cult dystopic fantasy film Fellini Satyricon. Taking elements of men’s wear in a bold new direction with golf shoe inspired tassels they are then paired with distinct embellishments that utilize five different types of studs and spikes mixed with lavish jewellery on a Cosmic 3D heel.
Putting her hair up, Marchavekel 100 on the sensual fetish heel is adorned with a feminine drape. Creating an elegant detail for day or evening like a turban for the foot, this signature Louboutin knot in veau velours is created entirely by hand in a meticulous process. Evening clutch Vanité intermingles with remixed shoe styles decked in printed water snake with a unique cherry blossom embellished pattern and a red pavé Swarovski clasp. Loubiposh comes through in a new Patent Petale, a printed patent that emulates swirls of beautiful florals with impressionistic zeal. The handbag is complete with Aurora Borealis spikes, a mix of iridescent colours that glean like a star filled sky.
