|Press Queues Up to See the Louboutin Autumn Winter 2013-14 Collection Preview|
There were lots of unexpected goodies in Louboutin’s FW
2013/14 collection and we were just lucky enough to get the inside preview.
We absolutely heart the direction this collection took
on: women’s 12 cm heels becoming even
thinner to accentuate those already perfectly long sexy legs, heels adorned
with embroidery and crystals, men’s inspiring women’s, new logos and materials
and men’s taking a surprisingly new turn..
So much newness,
that those lines in front of the Jean
Jacques Rousseau boutique are bound to get
even longer when this collection hits
(thank you universe for those cute
Louboutin boys that come out to serve tea.. makes us almost want seconds..
So let’s start with our favorites
: Her “HIGHNESS SOMBRERO” a Daphodile work of art
in lush greens and golds, embroidered with Swarovski crystals and as her name
, inspired by Mexican culture.
Paired with the matching clutch,
this is one look that will definitely
keep those winter nights..shall we say:
Onto one of PIGALLE’s new looks
: a studded or embroidered, thinner heal with
the inner side “découpé”, revealing more skin, more personality… could be one
pair that Alex Hepburn would like to add to her must always haves in her
Speaking of bags, we absolutely fell head over heals for the
SYBILLE bag and clutch for their multi color spikes
. The rockish punk look takes on a warmer,
sophisticated feel with the mix of warm, shiny colors. Perfect to mix and match
with the collection’s warm autumn colors.
Oh yes, you’ll most probably notice some changes to detail
in this collection as well. Gone on
accessories are the traditional Louboutin logos; you’ll now see a discretely
embroidered “Louboutin” and a not so discrete red sole on the zipper. Changes we love!
WHO NEEDS TO ADVERTISE A LOUBOUTIN WHEN OTHERS IN YOUR TRIBE CAN ALREADY RECOGNISE YOU ANYWAY?!
And to make this collection and all future ones even more
exclusive and unique
, Louboutin now has it’s very own leather, created and
produced only for the house: “Paris Calf”:
a most beautifully soft and supple leather, bordering on vintage
Anyway, where were we?
Oh yes, favorites. Let’s talk
. Men’s…. has expanded in
style and scope. No longer is Louboutin
solely focused on a more ostentatious men’s crowd, but has, to the delight of
many men (this Green Pebbles Gentlemen included), designed some more
. We, Louboutin
boys, can now wear the best of all worlds:
“OFFICE”, casual chic and flare.
We saw ourselves wearing the “Only you”, a beautifully rich
mocha, crafted patina weathered wing tip to the office (and anywhere else for
that matter) with a pair of Exceptio cuff links, matched to a suit or
jeans. And for an even more casual
Oxford or Hampton weekend out, the CHARLES X loafers (with a most interesting
ring) could be your bet
Last, but not least, we’ve got the multi colored derbies
with a brass embroidered welt! (Wow)
Both in men’s and women’s versions.
Ellen, you may by accompanying Portia to Louboutin for the
new PIGALLE, but you’ll be leaving with a pair of Louboutin Derbies for
