Christian Louboutin has been unveiling the latest spring collection a little differently this season. Instead of having the usual countdown and hosting an interactive look book on his web site, they’re slowly releasing new designs through the e-boutique.
The spring styles are always brighter, more playful and I think this is one of the more wearable collections. It’s a mix of media madness (a trend in shoes this season) balanced out with several feminine, classic designs (such as the V-Neck, Flo).

These Fall 2012 pumps feature two-tone white & black leather, pointed-toe, bronze leather insert and stiletto heel. Gwyneth Paltrow just wore very similar pumps on the red carpet earlier this week. Half sizes are available.
Walter Stegier’s Spring 2012 collection is the perfect paradox. We see delicate, minimalistic sandals like the Punchy and Philo and also several bold designs like the Prunelle and Prestance featuring the signature curved Steiger heel. Materials include raphia, patent leather, python and crocodile with a mix of bright neon tones. Most recently we’ve seen Elizabeth Banks in the Muse, Malin Akerman in the Punchy and Fergie wore the Prestance to the Grammys.

Here are the new styles and names released from the much anticipated Christian Louboutin Spring 2012 collection:
I will be updating this list as styles are released and as always tell you when they become available online. The PVC pumps are very interesting and I would love to have the Bis Un Bout in black suede. Pay close attention to Louboutin’s US online store – new styles are being released almost daily.
