In the world of high-fashion shoes, there are few designers as famous as Christian Louboutin. Famed for his trademark bright-red sole, the ‘cobbler to the stars’ has created eye-popping footwear for some of the most famous people in the world, from Princess Diana to Prince.
Los Angeles vintage mecca Decadestwo (which you may remember from The Rachel Zoe Project–it’s one of those stores that makes her “DIE” like, a lot) is holding their bi-annual designer shoe sale tomorrow, and shopping it won’t just mean doing something good for yourself, but for the victims of the recent earthquake in Haiti, too. The sale always draws a serious crowd (check out the 400+ guys and gals who lined up outside the store at last year’s event, above!), but they’re hoping to bring in even more ladies lusting after discounted designer stilettos with this year’s charity effort.
You may not be ready to splurge on a pair of Christian Louboutin heels yet, but no worries: his cosmetics line could be classing up your bathroom counter in 2013. The famed shoe designer has started a new company, Christian Louboutin Beauty. “Beauty products also have to do with empowering women,” he explained to WWD. “That’s very much the job of the shoes I’m designing.” This announcement comes just in time for the shoemaker’s 20th anniversary this year.
As you’d expect, Louboutin owns a lot of shoes – which, although he is a shoe designer, is a lot considering he can’t wear half of them. In fact, he doesn’t have enough storage for them all, so some of the fanciest shoes in the world are simply lying around as overspill from his cupboard space. They’re not all high-heels though – he has a strong collection of sneakers too.
Have a different viewpoint just like Christian Louboutin , cab you do that?
