Christian Louboutin’s spicy soles have made him an international name, but who is this rebellious soul who created this celebrated phoenix of a brand? What does he have in common with the women who wear his shoes – or with you? And does wearing the shoes of a perfectionist echo our own personality traits? See what you think…
Inspired by Egypt’s sacred scarab beetle, the muse of Christian Louboutin has brought forth the creation of Louboutin’s spectacular Scarabee collection. Blue green iridescence with flashes of violet, rose, gold and copper, all Scarabee pieces are deliciously eyecatching. Glimpses occur of crystalled heels, python sneakers and pumps, a small Paloma bag and multiple nailpolish shades – and we love them all!
Ah, the Louboutin Paloma bag. For Louboutin ladies, this is the little LB Birkin of the Louboutin bag line.
Sleek, spiked and screaming with understated personality, my favourite is the edgy fashion business babe Paloma in black calfskin with leopard print spiked sides. The small and medium are the most intriguing sizes, with small suiting petite women well (babes who suit a 23″ Birkin) and medium suiting taller or larger framed women (ladies who rock Loewe Amazona 36″).
