Christian Louboutin Spring 2012 Collection

Update: ***Check out the new Christian Louboutin Fall 2012 Collection***

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.

PLEASE use this: My friend Roz put together a great guide to avoiding fake Louboutins and a guide to where to find the real thing.

Where to shop for current season styles: Christian Louboutin’s US boutique (also has e-boutiques available for tons of countries!), Bergdorf GoodmanNet-A-PorterSaks Fifth AvenueNeiman Marcus & Barneys.

Manolo Blahnik Fall 2011 Collection

Every season on Manolo’s web site there is a brief write up explaining the inspiration behind the collection. For Blahnik’s Fall 2011 collection some influences came from Tolstoy & Dali, to classic Hollywood beauties and also from architectural designs like the Moorish mosaics. Last season the standout piece was the Anastasiathis season, the Muna zig zag pump, Permin pump & the black and pink Imbratahi striped bootie catch my eye.

The Frontal slingback sandal is available online in dark violet, black & military green suede at Barneys, and dark violet suede at Neiman Marcus.

Alexander McQueen Fall 2011 Collection

Alexander McQueen’s Fall 2011 shoe collection mixes the older styles in with the new. The signature heart peep-toe pump is re-made in a beautiful pink velvet and also in a suede-to-patent version. The new laces on the platform boots (at the very bottom of the post) are beautiful featuring metal eyelets (as seen on the runway).

I had to blink a couple times when I first saw the price on the first platform wedge featured below. I haven’t seen a shoe (especially online) priced over $4,000 since Valentino’s sculpted lace pump.

My favorite pieces include the t-strap sandal already seen on Sarah Jessica Parker, the curved platform peep-toe wedge and the beautiful pink suede boot.

As always I will continue to update the list as more styles appear online.
