Embracing the trend of unisex style androgynous looks, Christian Louboutin has debuted a new fall collection of unisex styles with chic silhouettes. For this coming season, the designer encourages you to push your boundaries and move fluidly between gender expectations. You’ll find that the women’s and men’s shoe designs mirror each other, and blur gender lines effortlessly and fashionably. From Oxfords to loafers to booties, all the shoes in the new collection are designed with today’s modern generation in mind.
Loafers definitely steal the spotlight in this fall’s collection. The new Monana flat is a classic example of how masculine style isn’t just for gentlemen, but can also works well in a lady’s ensemble. Besides the sleek black version, the Monana is also available in a playful combination of black, white and red. We love how the traditional penny loafer is adorned with a fine silver-chain detail and a gold Christian Louboutin engraved coin. The Monono, the men’s version of this modern silhouette, shares the same Louboutin coin design and slick black look.
The Laperouza flat was a bestseller in the spring and summer collections, and it makes a return with a signature gold bullion embroidered Christian Louboutin crest. Best described as masculine-chic, the loafer also features grosgrain piping and the signature red sole. In a similar style, the Perou Corazon boasts a structured shape, as well as a sleek black colour. However, it sports a three-dimensional heart in rich rouge and golden cannetille embroidery, which are touches inspired by Mexican art.
Christian Louboutin is also bringing lug soles back to the women’s collection. This season, we see a wide range of dynamic Oxfords and chalet-ready booties. The newly adapted rubber soles are lighter and more flexible in comparison to the old ones. For instance, we particularly like the flattering Oxford shape of the Hubertus Donna. The roche lamé-washed leather adds a glamorous sheen, while the Louboutin red-lined lug sole gives the shoes a fashionable edginess. If you like the looks of Hubertus Donna but prefer a versatile black version, the Charletta flat is probably your best option. The sleek brogue Oxford is also lined with signature Louboutin red, and the black vinyl-effect patent leather make it durable for everyday wear.
Boots might be a bit hot for Bangkok weather, but why not get a pair for your winter travels in December? Comfortable and stylish, the Mad Boot is garnished with ribbed leather detailing at the heel cap, ankle cuffs and a quilted leather tongue. With an all-terrain lug sole finish and lace-up feature, this combat-style boot is best for blustery, windy months. A complete contrast to the Mad Boot, the Disco 70s ankle boot boasts glamorous sequins with a 55mm stacked heel. The best part of this glitzy, shimmering fashion statement is that the look changes from silver to multi-coloured with just a graze of the hand.
