Christian Louboutin opened his first boutique in Paris in 1992. An artisan and a craftsman with a true passion for shoes, his designs are unique and instantly recognisable, 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 collections have been immortalised 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. Following on from this has been a highly anticipated lip collection in 2015, a range of three signature Louboutin fragrances in 2016 and 2017 saw the addition of an eye category. Christian Louboutin now counts more than one hundred boutiques around the world.
