Christian Louboutin is commemorating 20 years in the accessories business with a special capsule collection.
The capsule collection reinterprets Christian Louboutin’s most iconic shoes and handbags, so ideally it should be everything we love about the label, but better. It draws inspiration from Louboutin’s favorite muses, including the world of cabaret, architecture, world travel, and the arts, so it should be right up the alley of any Christian Louboutin fan.
The anniversary range will feature 20 different shoes, one for every year of business, and six handbags. Photographs of the shoes have been released via Christian Louboutin’s Facebook page, but images of the purses have been kept under wraps. This sketch, which shows the Christian Louboutin Artemis Plumes, gives us a little sneak peek though. It certainly looks promising!
As a handbag fan I can’t help feeling a little shortchanged that the bag collection is so small, but even that can barely temper my excitement for this special range.
Christian Louboutin’s Facebook fans can sign up for an invitation to shop for the capsule line via the fashion label’s online boutique ahead of its official launch. It will then be available at an exclusive pop-up boutique in London’s Selfridges store on February 27, before being rolled out to traditional Christian Louboutin stores in March.
