“A shoe has so much more to offer than just to walk.” – Christian Louboutin
In honor of the brand’s 20th birthday, designer Christian Louboutin has launched a collection with 20 pairs of autographed and limited edition shoes, “Capsule collection: 20 shoes for 20 years”. The collection will be in store first in European cities including Paris and London on February 27th and then launch in the rest of the world.
The 1st boutique opened in 1991 in Paris and the brand became a must-have footwear line for the past two decades. It’s easier to count the celebrities who haven’t been seen wearing the red soles on the red carpet than the vast number of celebrities who have.
The exclusive collection can be viewed on the brand’s Facebook page here . There, you can sign up to receive an invitation to be the first to shop the new line on the official website.

It will be a unique exploration of Louboutin’s design process, through every stages of the design journey, from the drawing to the first prototype. The exposition will be from May to July 8. Tickets are already available on the museum website.
