I am very excited about today’s post because it is centered around my favorite color!! Red, Rojo, Rouge, Vermelho!
I love all things red and what they evoke. Love, passion, strength, desire, luxury and elegance.
All of these things are synonymous with the Christian Louboutin brand.
Now, a little background on how the red sole was born.
After two years in the shoe making business Louboutin was inspired to design shoes from Andy Warhol’s point of view. He compared the shoe to his drawing, and though similar, it did not capture his vision.
In the mean time, there was someone painting her nails and in a stroke of genius, he took the nail polish and painted the soles of the heels.That is how the iconic red sole came to be. Now, Mr. Louboutin is returning to what started it all, nailpolish. His beautiful trademark red will be the feature color of this collection. I won’t lie it is PRICEY! It costs $50 a pop!
But hey… if you are feeling luxurious…
Enjoy the pictures I took of the SAKS 5th Avenue Christian Louboutin display.
