For Autumn/Winter 2015, Christian Louboutin turns back the clock on several eras of style, from the sixties, to punk, to grunge. Influenced by the exotic, the bold, the sensual, and the irreverent, the line introduces new colours, textures, and technical innovations with the detail and craftsmanship that are emblematic of the Louboutin brand.
Powerful women continue to influence Christian’s work, and this season, the lady is a vamp! Dangerous curves give way to sharp silhouettes of supple, shapely leather on Vampydolly and Sweety Charity, embellished with tantalizing black fringe. The seduction continues in transparency and five different types of lace on slinged and strappy pumps like Marinadentella, Follies Lace, and Oolala, styles that evoke the sensuality of lingerie.
In a sharper turn, styles like Electro Pump and Electroboot pay homage to punk, adorned with meticulously crafted leather spikes along the spine of the heel. Saudade and Faolo Boot bring out the grunge, garnished in spiky metallic cones from the Louboutin archives. Other hardware elements in the collection include a mix of chains, from the heavy and welted to the delicate, hand-applied mini-chains seen on Dolly Party.
For the track star, there’s Sharpstagram, Elastagram and Pumpstagram in an amalgam of oranges, blues, and yellows with elastic straps and sporty techno fabrics that mix the technical with the luxurious.
