In the early nineties, Christian Louboutin shoes became known for their vibrant colours and exoticism. Louboutin was pivotal in bringing stilettos back into fashion in the nineties and into the 2000s. His more opulent evening wear designs often incorporate embellishment and decoration such as feathers, exotic leathers and jewel encrusted straps. The designer also produces reams of elegant and feminine day and casual shoes.
Famously, Louboutin’s trademark is the lipstick red soles of his shoes, which flash into sight when the wearer walks. The coloured sole is an iconic symbol of this brand – simple and very recognizable.
