Cruise 2012 Shoe Collection: Christian Louboutin

8 Dec

As a confirmed high heels enthusiast, you would understand why I consider Mr Louboutin a genius when it comes to shoe making. I don’t agree with the man half the time, I mean, I didn’t say he was a shoe deity – much as he loves to think – specific ref. to the  YSL lawsuit. But hey, we agree on stunning foot candy, he just knows how to craft those heels.

The way they arch in perfection, the way he pushes the boundary of how high is high, bordering between classic simplicity and bejewelled beauty. With this collection, he takes mexican beading, metallic brights, jewels, studs and adds them to the mix. I’m particularly taken by the embroidered turquoise satin pumps, stunning.

Nothing beats the perfect shoe silhouette

9 Jun

I can’t believe i haven’t blogged in so many weeks! So so heartbreaking! But hey, it’s one day at a time i guess, never too late to jump right back in. I plan to express my fashionable side as much as possible from now on. Scouts honour!

So, my eyes dropped to the silhouette of my shoes today and i couldn’t help the fuzzy feeling. I love that beautiful arch at the sole of a shoe, especially when it curves into a slim and generously high heel. We’ll be going for a 5 to 6 inch heel there *wink wink*

It’s even more exquisite when it has an unusual shape, I love love love YSL shoes for that, Miu Miu has some stunning shapes as well. We all kinda agree that Christian Louboutin has nailed heel perfection to an art, so we’ll always pay homage to the maestro.

Wella! I decided to go-a-drooling and picked out some goose bumps worthy heels from these amazing shoe artists. Drool with me please, lol.

Louboutin Spring Summer Tour

23 Jan

The fusion between art and fashion is beautiful. It’s like a collision of two creative forces and quite exciting to see. One designer who constantly makes this happen is Christian Louboutin, all you need do is check out his fantasy themed site and you’ll see what I mean.

For the coming season he collaborated with photographer Khuong Nguyen to make a stunning Spring/Summer 2011 lookbook tagged Louboutin Spring Summer Tour. The concept gives life to the shoes and makes them take on a whole new persona, more or less like ‘the Louboutins day out.’

Still loving Louboutin

14 Jan

Christian Louboutin attained cliché status and while he’s still got his loyal fan base, he’s not quite as ‘hot right now’ as he was many months ago, but he’s still got shoe game. He has the art of the high heel wrapped around his pinky finger and totally love him for that.

Well, anyone who created these fabulous shoes is worthy of being loved.

Now this is one juicy bit of news worth taking a break from NYFW for. Selfridges launched the world’s biggest shoe hall yesterday night. Second floor of the uber stylish mall, home to 55,000 shoes, 150 brands and 11 designer boutiques, representing all the desirable designer names in shoes. Yeah, you guessed, Christian Louboutin, Jimmy Choo, Yves Saint Laurent, Chanel plus high street brands, all spread out over 35,000 square feet…are you drooling yet? LOL! It opens to the public on 23rd September, can’t wait!

Love the hot pink chaise lounge
