Happy Halloween All,
Last Friday, I dashed into Brown Thomas to get a sneak peek at what Christian Louboutin has in store (pun fail) for us next season. After 20 years of making them, his red-soled shoes are some of the most iconic, talked about footwear in fashion; his S/S’12 collection also includes some pretty fabulous bags as well.
It’s all about snake skin and fetish with a bit of country chic in there too.
To celebrate the 20th anniversary of keeping women well-shod, and men drooling at their feet, a beautiful, pink faux-leather-bound book has been released. It’s contents include a history of the brand, and highlights from each Louboutin collection created over the last two decades.
It also contains photographs created in collaborations “between Christian Louboutin and some of his closest friends”. Including, Kristin Scott Thomas, Dita Von Teese, French actress Arielle Dombasle and Welsh Rugby player, Gareth Thomas. The book will be on sale in the Marvel Room in Brown Thomas this Christmas.
Here’s a short ‘making of’ video showing Kristin Scott Thomas’ photo shoot for the book.
