As if his ordinary styles are not enough to make women go wild, Christian Louboutin had to outdo himself once again with his very limited-edition, very amazing, Marie Antoinette inspired heels.
Saying these pretty shoes cost a pretty penny would be an understatement– but just look at them! Marie Antoinette, known for her lavish clothing and excessive lifestyle, would surely be proud. The heels, which will make their US debut at South Coast Plaza’s Christian Louboutin Boutique at the end of this month, are priced at $6,295-OH MY! If you live in the Southern California area and need an excuse to splurge (or you are just dying to get a look at these lovely Louboutins in person), the creator himself will be there to introduce his new collection, and sign shoes, on February 23. They will make their way to his Madison Avenue Boutique three days later.
Only 36 pairs of these museum-worthy heels will be created, and the shoes come with more than just the joy that accompanies wearing a work of art on your feet. Each pair will be individually stamped and numbered, come in a uniquely designed box, and will include a book illustrating Louboutin’s collaboration with Jean-Francois Lesage (embroider and creative partner for the collection).
Their frilly femininity, combined with that sexy edge that Louboutin’s classic red sole is famous for, makes these shoes très magnifique! I do realize that they may not rank very high up on the wearability scale, but that won’t stop me from gushing!
What do you think? Completely amazing or completely over-the-top?
