Christian Louboutin x Paris Fashion Week
The only pair that might surpass Champagne and Macron’s is Christina Louboutin and Paris Fashion Week. Last week, Louboutin partnered up with Olympia Le-Tan’s collection as well as Yazbukey’s.
OLT’s collection paid homage to some of the greatest works of art the last century had to offer. Louboutin completed these aesthetically pleasing pieces, donned in sequins and embroidery, by customizing footwear in the line’s color scheme. Specifically, the Lord Cubano was featured in black and brown calf skin; giving a more rugged feel to daintly shaped garments; as well as featuring artfully placed splatter prints. Nails were expressive, mustard yellow Mula Lisa and turquoise blue Batignolles gave an distinct touch to the presentation.
The black widow’s of Yazbukey’s presenation may have been morbid, dark, and seductive but their shoes were anything but. Models strutted down the runway in Round to Fififa 100 in either red or black patent leather. Customized styles made their way into this line as well; red suede with ankle straps and satin Pampas mules with fur pompom; they gave a sense of femininity to the line. Each look was provactaive in the most sophisticated way, a woman in power with an elegant feel.
Louboutin and his fabulous designs helped each designer express a larger picture, to exude a theme all their own. We hope to see more partnerships like this in the future!
