Christian Louboutin is best known for its scarlet stilettos. The iconic “red bottoms” were conceived by chance when the designer borrowed his assistant’s nail polish to paint the soles of a design – and instantly fell in love with the outcome. This signature code now features across the label’s glamorous footwear. Christian Louboutin launched his eponymous label in 1991. Founded in the heart of Paris, the brand's ever-expanding roster of shoes and accessories – including its menswear line – are highly coveted around the world.
