Christian Louboutin ‘Tattoos To Measure’

Louboutin Tattoo Shoes 1 Christian Louboutin Tattoos To Measure
Christian Louboutin just launched a service in all men’s boutiques i Paris, London and Los Angeles that will allow customer’s to let their own tattoos be embroidered on a pair of shoes. launches a bespoke service which offers shoppers an opportunity to create a one-of-a-kind shoe.

Christian Louboutin about the concept:

‘It started as an idea of a present for a friend, I made a pair of shoes for him embroidered with his tattoo. A lot of my friends have tattoos, I realised that it’s not only just a part of pop culture but a bit of a map on someone’s body which says something about people. A part of their life, like an armour or a crest. Instead of carrying someone else’s crest on a loafer, I thought it would be a modern armouries , your own crest on your own shoe. Instead of a classical made to measure bespoke shoe, which other men’s shoe brands do very well, this is my modern approach to bespoke.’

The service is also available for ladies, where four classic styles are offered; the Rollergirl flat, the Louis sneaker, the elegant Belle Ankle boot, and the Highness pump.

Take a first look on the customized Louboutin’s in the gallery on the next page.

CL1 387x540 Christian Louboutin For Bergdorf Catalog Autumn 2012

If you have visited New York’s Bergdorf Goodman department store, you know it’s akin to visiting a sort of “now” museum, with all the runways’ most gorgeous offerings in full bloom and artfully displayed in an array of shops dedicated to expressing each label to the fullest. It was unknown to me until I made a purchase there in the Spring, that Bergdorf’s makes a seasonal catalog, which is full of its most tempting items, all beautifully photographed. Get your hands on the Autumn issue, titled “111 Years of Extraordinary” or view it here online, and see if you don’t often find it loads better than anything the major books offered up for their big September issue.

The latest catalog includes the above image (scanned by moi), showing a Christian Louboutin sandal, described as  ”ankle-strap d’orsay platform pumps in black suede with dyed pink mink fur heel cap,” or in other words “heaven in a shoe.” Find the CL shoe for purchase here.

Louboutin Argues For ‘Very Specific Red’ Sole

08 February 2012, 16.38 | Posted in Designer news, Shoes | No comments »


Christian Louboutin in an interview with French newspaper Libération (translation via Vogue UK) laid out his case against YSL for designing a shoe featuring a red sole:

“….it is a red in a specific context [in the way that], there is Ferrari red [and] Hermès orange. Even in the food industry, Cadbury recently won a lawsuit against Nestlé for using purple packaging. All this proves that the colours play a part in a brand’s identity. I’m not saying that red usually belongs to me – I repeat that this is about a precise red, used in a precise location.”

He also shed some light on his own relationship with PPR, a publically-traded company, which owns YSL and has made numerous offers to buy Christian Louboutin, all of which Louboutin has turned down. He then flips from business to personal, going in on YSL’s decision to design shoes with red soles:

“I find it most incredible that a group like PPR would take the risk of defending itself as a plagiarist. They claim to fight against counterfeiting and plagiarism of which they are victims and yet behave like this.”

What a distraction this must be for Louboutin. I wonder sometimes if he doesn’t think, why did we even bother with this in the first place. After all, even though he isn’t the first to do red soles, among people in the know, that design element is metaphorically owned by him. But something in his gut must be telling him to fight another day so in the end we just hope he has his way for reasons we posted here. If he does not, it will be intriguing to see what the fall out will be.
