CHRISTIAN LOUBOUTIN CELEBRATES NEAPOLITAN CRAFTSMANSHIP THIS SPRING
Famed designer Christian Louboutin has unveiled his spring/summer 2016 men’s shoe collection, which celebrates centuries of Neapolitan craftsmanship through new silhouettes, unique fabrications and modern details. To celebrate the launch, Christian Louboutin has collaborated on a series of colorful images with photographer and filmmaker, Rene Habermacher, for its ad campaign.
The new collection features four styles all handmade by artisans at a family-owned Naples factory. Rich patina calf and hand-finished can be found in such styles as the “Cousin Greg” oxford and the “So Dandy” slip-on loafer.” Additionally, a derby with a stitched sole and traditional brogue accents entitled “So Charles”, and “Mortimer,” featuring a double buckle strap with double stitching, take men of style from the boardroom to any evening affair.
Christian Louboutin was created in 1992 when Louboutin opened his first boutique at 19 Jean-Jacques Rousseau in Paris. Louboutin now has more than one hundred boutiques around the world, including several locations dedicated to men’s and a one-of-a-kind beauty boutique in Paris.
