Christian Louboutin Releases 20th Anniversary Collection

Christian Louboutin is celebrating 20 years in the fashion business with a capsule collection that encompasses some of his most iconic work.

“In France, 20 years defines a generation, Louboutin said. “This is a celebration of the first generation of this brand; an anniversary of its first young adventure.

The limited-edition collection is made up of all the things women dream of — bright coloured pumps, bows, embellishments, feathers, and lots of bling. Just for fun, Louboutin threw in the Pilule bag, which resembles an actual 500mg pill.

When I was working on my book [which also celebrates the anniversary], I realized there are certain ideas that have always come back into my designs. For example, I have always loved showgirls and have done many things in reference to those birds of paradise, Louboutin explains of his capsule collection. The Bow Bow is about transparency, and the Havana Trash is what I imagine is on the floor at the Tropicana. I’ve always worked with artisans from different countries, as well as artists, like the 25-year-old graffiti artist Nicolas Michel who tagged some of our shoes. This collection is about all of those things.

In part with his 20th anniversary, The London Design Museum is hosting a retrospective exhibition on Louboutin’s work. The exhibition includes the history behind the designer’s iconic red soles and a collection of his designs that include stilettos, pumps, sneakers and lace-up boots. Visitors will also have the chance to see the process of shoe-making, from the design sketch to final production.
