Christian Louboutin Pumps, Heels, Sandals, Evening Shoes Review: Leather, Satin, Lace, Watersnake, Pony Hair, Fishnet
Christian Louboutin Heels
Without a doubt, Christian Louboutin heels, pumps, and evening shoes department (the latter category forming a separate brand section) includes the brand's – and as many would say, the entire industry's – most popular and bestselling shoes.
This is where the qualities of elegance and sophistication, combined with use of high-end, often unorthodox materials, become enhanced and elevated to the level of genuine couture art – this is why the name Christian Louboutin continues to draw the attention of celebrities and the fashionably aware audiences across the entire globe.
The range of designs includes classic closed&almond shaped toe on high heels (up to six inches in the “sky high” models), peep-toe, angular “mule” architecture, sandals (strapped, available on also wedges), slings, and others. The pumps rarely upstage the heels, calmly complimenting the slender stems; interestingly, it is the white and ivory shoes that give the pumps a more pronounced aesthetic role.
While all of the shoes on offer feature the iconic red sole, only some models opt for a matching brightness on the upper: neutral beige, white, and silver, classic black and white, earthy brown and bronze – all of these tonal palettes vie for attention besides the vibrant purple, pink, blue, red and green.
Besides standard leather, the over fifty collections in this segment arrive in such animal drawn materials as ostrich legs skin, pony hair, watersnake, karung snake, python skin, and such fabrics as denim, flannel, suede, satin, and lace. Ornamental accents include the trademark deployment of strass (rhinestones), glitter, bows, and spikes.
Collections include Mistica, You You, Simple (echoing the Simple Boot line), Mireille, Mater Claude, Miss Tack, New Decoltissimo, Elisa, Prorata, Corta Mia, Maudissima, Fifi, New Hai, Pigalle, Pigalili, Lucifer Bow, Declic, New Declic, Big Lips, Rolando Zip, Bruges, Maggie, Bibi, Bianca, Architek, and others.
Evening shoes epitomize Christian Louboutin design originality and aesthetic innovation. The stress on prominent accents and three-dimensional decoration renders the heels attention magnets; such refined and delicate fabrics as satin, lace, and even fur create a pair of genuinely luxurious, high-end fashion items suitable only for the most exclusive events. Neutral tones dominate the palette, revealing a relatively orthodox approach to color – an indispensible element when offsetting the richness and visual punch of the fabrics.
Collections include Jenny, Grouchily, Super, Canonita, Catchiste, Nutria, Very Prive, Hyper Prive, Maralena, Brandaplato, Greissimo Pump, Marale, Margot, and others.
