Joyeux anniversaire Monsieur Louboutin!

“When I saw my maid paint her nails red I decided to do the same with the soles of shoes” Christian Louboutin once said. And so was the colour of the most adored “shoemaker” in the world born. Still today there is no fashionista or celebrity who dares to tread the red carpet without their LouboutinsNicole Kidman, Jennifer Lopez, Blake Lively, Victoria Beckham and Uma Thurman know very well what I’m talking about.

Twenty years after that first store on the little street Vero-Dodat in Paris, and the photograph in the magazine W of Caroline of Monaco with several pairs of Louboutins; the adventure of a twenty something man who dreamed of making beautiful shoes for women has become an empire with branches in all major cities in Europe and the U.S., Dubai, Beirut, Sydney, Sao Paulo, Beijing, Moscow, Delhi, Bombay, Istanbul and even in Ho Chi Minh! The company has 420 employees and produces 700,000 pairs a year. Their next challenge? Shoes for the Queen of England. Knowing Christian, we wouldn’t be surprised to soon see Elizabeth II combining her lady like clothes with a pair of Loubs

We have already seen hundreds of them, but this time we want to gather the 20 icon pairs that the French house have launched to celebrate its birthday. A unique capsule collection, and 8 of the models are already available at Santa Eulalia! But that’s not all: In our shelves on the first floor you will find a fantastic book published by Rizzoli, with photos by David Lynch, dedicated to the genius of the heights. Now… celebrate your own birthday with Monsieur Louboutin!
