Christian Louboutin opened his first boutique in Paris in 1992. An artist and a craftsman with a true passion for shoes, his designs are unique and instantly recognizable, thanks in part to their signature and now trademarked red lacquered soles. Louboutin's collections for both women and men combine wit, glamour, elegance and technical proficiency like none other. Louboutin's creations have been immortalized in museums, on fashion week runways, red carpets and in pop culture. 2014 welcomed the launch of Christian Louboutin Beauté with its first nail colour, Rouge Louboutin. The brand's highly anticipated lip colour launched in September 2015. With an extensive range of collections, Christian Louboutin now counts more than one hundred boutiques around the world.
