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.
