LOUBOUTIN FALL/WINTER 2022 ~ A FANTASY REALM
Christian Louboutin Fall/Winter 2022-23 collection transports us to new fantasy realms.
During Paris Fashion Week, Christian Louboutin presented the different realms for the Fall/Winter 2022-23 collection. The first theme, a whimsical collaboration between Christian Louboutin and his dear friend, artist Yaz Bukey. Set in an Ottoman palace and inspired by murder mystery detective board games – and the colourful characters that inhabit them – , the exclusive Louby Mistery capsule unveils the irresistible Lipstick heel with its sleek contours and gold finish, as well as original prints such as the weapons print or the oriental Tapis embroidery.
New head-turning styles include the Superyaz sandal, featuring an exceptional metallic embroidery platform heel, and the Yazflirt Alta sandal. One of the capsule’s stand-out pieces, this velvet platform sandal is meticulously hand-embellished and adorned by a beautiful (but carnivorous!) tulip. Embodying the playfulness so typical of the Maison, fun accessories such as bejewelled shoe clips in the shape of eyes and lips, and novelty socks in unexpected prints and materials complete the offer.
Celebrating Christian’s insatiable love of travel, the Maison’s seasonal cabas introduces two exclusive styles with the Greekaba. Inspired by the land and the sea, each limited-edition piece created in collaboration with Konstantin Kakanias, multifaceted illustrator and a close friend of Christian’s, depicts the designer on his adventures in Athens and the Cyclades with his accomplice Miss Tependris and her faithful poodle Pepe. Paying tribute to the rich cultural heritage and craftsmanship of the Mediterranean, the Greekaba capsule comprises a new Loubiphore silhouette inspired by the tall narrow proportions of Ancient Greek amphoras, a smaller bucket size and Carasky version, as well as collection of men’s and women’s shoes reprising each of the two Greekaba’s standout details.
The collection will be available this May, 2022.
