Luxury accessories brand Christian Louboutin has released its new spring/summer 2017 collection and campaign entitled “Culture Convergence”, which focuses on the launch of the brand’s bench-made men’s styles.
Shot on location in Naples, Italy by Brooklyn-based photographer Lougè Delcy of Dapper Lou, these styles are celebrated a in a series of images taken in the brand’s factory that explore the convergence of traditional, centuries-old Italian leather manufacturing and innovative and boundary-pushing design.
Construction takes center stage in the cap toe Derby Hubertus – a Louboutin Homme classic – with a characteristic exposed ankle silhouette and open lacing system is crafted using handwork expertise by skilled artisans in the Maison’s Neapolitan base.
The Daurassic celebrates the range of skills found in the intergenerational team who proudly display their métier through the collection. Here, we find a subtle spike detailing to enhance the form of the style, adding definition at the toe cap whilst a complex construction of contrasting panels offer the wearer a style with versatility galore.
The Christian Louboutin’s Men’s collections can be found online at ChristianLouboutin.com and at several dedicated boutiques around the world, in cities from New York to Milan.
