Christian Louboutin expands in the Arabian Gulf
Ladies, ready your credit cards to splash some cash on a new collection.
In 2010, the maker behind the red-soled shoes opened his first standalone shoe store in Mall of Emirates.
Fast forward, a new Christian Louboutin boutique will open its doors April 2012. The stand-alone store will be located in Qatar’s unique shopping destination, The Villaggio Mall in the capital city of Doha.
The store’s debut collection includes sought-after classic styles such as the Pigalle, Hyper Privé and the now iconic Sweet Charity handbag, in a seasonal mandarin red colour with contrasting trim. Whimsical styles from the Spring/ Summer 2012 collection showcase the designer’s wit and craftsmanship, like the Makeup Trash: The 6 inch peep toe utilizes elements of a beauty queens vanity in a unique display of masterful embroidery. Meanwhile the Loubi Zeppa, inspired by a Christian Louboutin window display of neon lights “the Neon Graveyard”, comes to life as a colourful statement wedge.
The men’s selection in store caters to all tastes, from the spike and strass encrusted No Limit to the more classic, timeless appeal of the Louis trainer in black nappa.
