Christian Louboutins ROYAL FASHION
Fashion comes out to say “No” to financial crunch. Some designers make crunch-friendly collections, while others make totally exclusive, and thus expensive, stuff to show things are great, guys.
christian louboutins is one of these designers. His last shoe collection is aimed to appreciate “art, beauty and craftsmanship in its purest form.” And his latest muse is legendary French queen Marie Antoinette.
louboutin shoes teamed up with embroiderer-to-the-Couture Jean-Francois Lesage to create a limited edition collection of only 36 exclusive pairs.
The silk peep-toe, ankle strap stilettos come in three colors of soft pink, canary yellow or bright blue, and are covered with hand-embroidered flowers and lace edging, reminiscent of the Queen’s fabulous style.
Every shoe has an adornment of a face on the ankle strap that’s completed with pompadour wig and topped with a miniature of a ship, one of Marie Antoinette’s more famous hair adornments.
To show the exclusiveness of the collection every pair is stamped with a limited edition number and sold in an exclusive box. Every shoe is truly a work of art, a blend of sculpture and fine embroidery in an evening silhouette.
The shoe is impressively unique, so is its price of $6,295 per pair.
Though I love christian louboutins designs, I don’t think I could ever wear these shoes. And it’s not only about the price, the head on the strap makes me think of Gorgon.
So far the one and only celebrity to don these louboutin shoes on red carpet was Beyoncé Knowles.
