For Spring 2016, Christian Louboutin draws inspiration from the iconic woman of the ‘50s. Think less poodle skirts and more of a stylish trend-setter daydreaming about a luxurious life filled with tropical getaways, exotic safaris and of course, red soles.
‘The Day Dreamer’ fantasy takes us on a tour through a dramatic range of jet setting destinations from the striking Hawaiian tropics, adventurous urban treks and even an ancient Mexican tribal journey. Similarly to the alluring range of themes, the color palette is equally intriguing featuring elegant pastels, earthy neutrals and several bright neons.
A Louboutin collection is never complete without a little glitz n’ glamour. Crystals, studs and spikes adorn many of the statement styles including the Circus City, Jeremina and GirlsBestFriend.
There are also a few new staple silhouettes including the Cross Blake and Rivierina – which we just spotted Kristen Wiig debut on the red carpet this week.
This collection offers a shoe for every woman. Our top three? The Bouvines pump, Discodeporte sandal and Mrs Early t-strap.
