Christian Louboutin designed these pumps with Roland Mouret’s Spring 18 runway collection in mind. These Cage and Curry pumps give a artisanal mood with a bit of striking flare. They are hand-woven using a traditional knotting technique and underpinned with delicate mesh. Made in Italy from soft leather they feature delicate thin straps which encase the ankle plus a walkable 85mm heel. Pair them with our favorite denim pieces from Fendi, Prada and Isabel Marant.

Charlotte Olympia’s electric Pre-Fall 2016 Mechanix collection was inspired by Fritz Lang’s ‘Metropolis’ sci-fi epic. It’s a match made in heaven for Charlotte’s signature retro style as the film portrays a “highly stylized futuristic city” complete with snazzy robots, 1920s’ glamour and of course a dramatic love plot.

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.
During my [long] break from blogging, and even though I wasn’t writing everyday, I was still checking out the latest collections – once a shoe lover, always a shoe lover ☺.
One of the reasons I felt it took me so long to get back to blogging is that I couldn’t help but feel overall uninspired by everything I was seeing stocked in my favorite stores. Aside from a few standouts here & there, the designs seemed monotonous. Which is the reason why I have so much respect for designers who manage to balance creativity with wearability and staple pieces while at the same time maintaining a unique brand voice.
