One of a Kind

Renowned for his iconic stiletto sil­hou­ettes, famed de­signer Chris­tian Louboutin re­cently launched a be­spoke coun­ter­part. Louboutin’s ap­proach to footwear has al­ways been very tech­ni­cal, with the shoe act­ing as the pedestal of the body—and the made-to-mea­sure ser­vice is no dif­fer­ent. It starts off by tak­ing a cast of the client’s foot. From there, the world of per­son­al­i­sa­tion opens, with an end­less ar­ray of fab­ri­ca­tions, a di­verse colour pal­ette, and cus­tomised heel heights in clas­sic and new styles. Louboutin ex­plains, “Some clients have ideas, even ones that are a lit­tle weird. But I don’t like to re­strain any of these ideas or tell peo­ple it isn’t pos­si­ble.” Keep­ing the cou­ture as­pect of the brand alive, the ser­vice caters to all cre­ative whims and re­quests, mak­ing your cra­zi­est fash­ion fan­tasies tan­gi­ble. Due to the in­ti­mate na­ture of the process, it may take up to a year—but whether you’re look­ing for that Cin­derella fit or a pair of bridal cou­ture heels to match your per­fect day, Louboutin’s be­spoke ser­vice is a must for shoe fa­nat­ics.
