Christian Louboutin shoes embody the type of client the brand has always designed for: one who is bold, playful and undeniably feminine. Women the world over have been drawn to the Parisian designer’s creations for over three decades, thanks to their leg-lengthening effect, experimental silhouettes and famous red sole – a sure signifier to onlookers that you’re a part of his exclusive club. The success of this aesthetic has since been built upon, with the Louboutin empire expanding to encompass men’s footwear, bags and leather accessories, plus a line of luxurious beauty staples that have proved just as covetable as its footwear. From long-lasting nail polish to matte lip colour, their decadent packaging and flattering shades act as an extension of the Maison’s glamorous vision.

Seeing red? Then they’re Christian Louboutin. The heart (and soles) of the designer’s every collection, Louboutin’s love affair with rouge began in 1992 when he used a colleague’s nail varnish to decorate a prototype of his Pensée heels. The rest is history. Now, be it the Nudes collection, classic Kate pumps or aptly named Epic boots, all Louboutin shoes are united by their iconic flash of red.
When it comes to Christian Louboutin, making a bold style statement begins at ground level. Collectible sneakers, slick boots, ornate loafers – all based with a vivid red sole; Christian Louboutin’s conversation-starting footwear is for the man who dresses with confidence and flair.
Because every Louboutin heel needs a handbag to match, look no further than the maison’s oh-so covetable collection of cross-body bags, embellished totes and leather phone pouches. Elisa, Paloma and Cabata top the Who’s Who of luxury handbag nomenclature.
Cue lipstick, eye make-up and nail varnish in eye-catching shades and decadent packaging – a nod to Mr Louboutin’s passionate appreciation of glamour and femininity. And the latest addition to the beauty portfolio is a seven-strong perfume collection.
