After more than two decades at the helm of his own company, there’s no such thing as a “comfort zone” for Christian Louboutin. When it comes to Louboutins, no detail is overlooked and every new collection is a chance for the brand to venture into new territory; for Pre-Fall 2016, it did just that.
By now, we all know the name and we can spot a signature red bottom a mile away, and deservedly so–Christian Louboutin shoes are held in high regard in the luxury footwear market. The brand has millions of diehard fans who return again and again, and any Louboutin convert can tell you why they love the signature shoes.
This post is almost a continuous stream of red carpet photos, with exactly two interruptions. (Some celebs didn’t attend film premieres this week, or maybe they were still wearing great shoes while doing other stuff, but that’s allowed.) In quasi-related news, it has recently dawned on me that Lily James and Lily Collins are two different people, and the former is dating one of my celebrity boyfriends, which instantly makes her my celebrity nemesis.
We recently brought you a sneak peek of what you can expect from Christian Louboutin in Spring 2016, and thankfully, some of these spring accessories have started to trickle into stores. Louboutin has a lot to offer this upcoming season, and I wanted to take a closer look at the Paloma Tote, which is the brand’s biggest Spring 2016 handbag debut.
The devil is always in the details when it comes to Christian Louboutin‘s shoes and bags, and it’s mostly due to the designer’s knack for combining ornate patterns and textures into one smooth, elegant whole. Louboutin’s Spring 2016 collection is especially exciting because we have three new bag styles to look forward to (and, of course, an array of fancy footwear).
Christian Louboutin founded his company on footwear, but over the past few years, the red-soled shoe master has begun spreading his talents to other sectors of the fashion industry. Louboutin has found his footing when it comes to handbags, and every season, his designs are more covetable than the last.
Christian Louboutin’s first foray into beauty was nail polish, which made total sense–his famous shoes adorn and accent a woman’s feet, just as nail color so often does. Louboutin’s next beauty venture, lipstick, also makes a certain amount of sense–his signature color is a vibrant red, after all, and no place in beauty is the color more beloved than on the lips.
If you’re like me and tend to carry the entire inventory of your local CVS in your handbag, then you understand the dilemmas and struggles of buying a mini, micro or any other small-sized bag. Handbags are shrinking left and right, and it seems like a another half dozen popular designs get miniaturized every season.
Christian Louboutin‘s nail polish line was a hit as soon as it landed in stores, and now the brand is venturing outside of its standard colors and finishes for a few limited edition polishes. The Christian Louboutin Scarabee Collection consists of two duochrome and one multichrome polish, all in special packaging with gold tops.
