Women's Christian Louboutin
Christian Louboutin launched his eponymous label in 1991 after working with leading French shoe artisans. Its signature red soles were born shortly afterwards when he saw an employee painting her nails and decided to experiment with the bright shade. We suppose it’s true that accidents are the greatest inventors, because years later the soles are trademarked and the shoes... Well, they’re as fantastic as ever. Look out for iconic styles like the pointed Pigalle pump, available in every hue, texture and effect, from patent, to lace and sequinned in our edit.
