Christian Louboutin's 20th Anniversary
March 12, 2012 | Style & Beauty
For Christian Louboutin, a mere party isn’t enough to celebrate his first two decades as a designer, but a year’s worth of festivities should do. His latest: a capsule collection of shoes and bags, now arriving in select boutiques (including both Las Vegas locations, at Forum Shops at Caesars and The Shoppes at the Palazzo). Louboutin selected 20 styles of shoes—as well as six handbags—to represent the evolution of his work, from his early days apprenticing at the Folies-Bergère to his work with Tina Turner and Dita von Teese (seen here, his sketch of the $1,195 Bow Bow sandal). The limited-edition collection is sure to be snapped up, so don’t wait. Louboutin may have other tricks up his sleeve for the remainder of this anniversary year, but why take the chance?
