From the sexy and luxurious lines and curves of his shoes to that eye grabbing signature red sole, Louboutin’s shoes have a fan following like no other!
But wouldn’t you like to know, out of all the pairs of shoes he has designed for this autumn, which ones are the designer’s own favourite pairs? It has remained a secret, till now, thanks to Barneys New York department store.
Indeed department store Barneys New York has got Louboutin to give them the lo-down on his must-have pairs for autumn from their store.
The designer has spilled the beans about his personal favourites, which include seven pairs of shoes and one handbag.
1. Glitter Pigalle Follies Pumps
For Louboutin the seductive appeal of this pair lies in its slender high-heel and wild animal print. “A woman tells a story with her clothes, but it’s the shoe that carries her. With a high heel, it’s all about the body language. The heel changes the posture, and there is a new perception. It can seduce—especially in an animal print,” he said.
2. Orange Pigalle Follies
The orange pumps are favored for their bright tropical hue and flirty style. “The Pigalle Follies in the playful and vibrant orange reminds me of a Bird of Paradise flower,” said Louboutin of the shoe.
3. Follies Resille Pumps
Next on the list are the sexy fishnet Follies Resille Pumps. According to Louboutin, “Black fishnet with the combination of natural color mesh has a semi-transparent effect and reveal a hidden nudity.”
4. Iriza Half D’orsay Pumps
This nude pair is prized for its ability to complement every outfit while lengthening the wearer’s legs beautifully. Said Louboutin, “Every woman should have a nude shoe. It becomes an almost organic part of the body. It’s like an extension of the woman, not an accessory.”
5. Cutout Galata Pumps
With sexy cutouts being in the fashion spotlight, it’s no surprise that the Galata ended up on this list. However according to Louboutin, the beauty of the shoe lies in its distinctive colour, “I love the purple of the Galata. There is something very sensual about the colour.”
6. Bille Et Boule Studded Pumps
This studded PVC pair is all about contrasts for the designer. “I love mixing materials like patent leather and PVC, and I love the contrast between the feminine bow and masculine studs,” he said.
The beauty of the Pigalle lies in its simplicity. “The iconic Pigalle is simple and balanced—I’ve never seen anyone who didn’t look good in it,” said Louboutin of the shoe.
8. Tiger-Print Ponyhair Rougissime Clutch
“There is a stripe of red enamel on the metal-bar closure. You can only see it once the bag is opened, so it is like a secret between me and the wearer,” said Louboutin of the only bag on the list.
