You can always rely on Christian Louboutin to inject a splash of fun into fashion. Famed for his trademark red-soled stilettos, the footwear icon has long mastered the balance between quiet elegance and eye-catching pizazz, with everyone from Princess Caroline of Monaco to Cardi B wearing his designs. This season, Louboutin has stepped forward once again to serve us a brilliant (and exclusive to Selfridges) capsule collection for men and women – a six-piece line-up inspired by signature styles from the Louboutin archive, crafted from upcycled denim, complete with original jean pocket detailing. A melding of 90s-inspired style and repurposed materials? Yes please.
To celebrate the launch of this exclusive-to-Selfridges collection, we caught up with Christian Louboutin himself to discuss all things denim.
