Christian Louboutin’s red

By Cindy Clark, USA TODAY

LOS ANGELES When asked what she wanted for Christmas, High School Musical’s Ashley Tisdale didn’t hesitate: “Christian Louboutin heels.”

Hollywood’s leading ladies can’t seem to get enough of the red soled shoes that are a fixture on red carpets and at fashion photo shoots. And increasingly, Louboutin’s designs are popular among everyday women who are willing to spend $500 $1,500 a pair.

Though many people can’t pronounce his name (Lu bu TAHn), his signature red sole is instantly recognizable.

“I definitely think Christian is, for lack of a better word, the hottest shoe designer that there is out there,” says Filipa Fino, senior accessories editor at Vogue magazine. “He has captivated not only the socialite market but also Hollywood, and it is really the ‘it’ shoe to own right now.”

The red sole “has given him an edge, because it’s a visible touch that brands him. Women tend to feel others notice, and it’s a way of saying you’ve got the shoe.”

Sarah Jessica Parker was spotted in a pair on the set of the Sex and the City movie, a pair showed up in an episode of Dirty Sexy Money, and BMW featured the shoe in a commercial.

In October, Oprah Winfrey revealed a very pricey thank you gift from Jessica Seinfeld, who had been on the show pitching her cookbook. The gift? Twenty one pairs of shoes, many of which media outlets identified as Louboutins.

“It’s always a surprise for me when I see my shoes on someone or in a picture. I feel great about that,” says Louboutin, 44, whose first boutique opened 15 years ago in Paris. “I’ve always loved shoes and always wanted to do shoes.”

His collections now include espadrilles, sandals, boots, pumps and evening shoes in heels ranging from flat to skyscraper high. A handbag line (priced $700 and up) was launched this year.

“I’m inspired by many things,” he says. “And I love women, love watching women try on my shoes.”

But not so much that he’d give them away. Louboutin doesn’t play favorites. Unlike designers who send stars courtesy pieces to wear, Louboutin makes everyone pay.

“If things are given for free to you, it has no value in it, and you don’t really worship it.”

So when you see red soles on Nicole Kidman, Catherine Deneuve, Cameron Diaz, Ashley Olsen, Gwyneth Paltrow or Angelina Jolie, you know they’re not freebies.

“He has so much passion and so much heart,” says Olsen, who refers to Louboutin as a best friend. “He’s so talented and has really done it by himself and learned the hard way.”

Like other luxury brands, Louboutin’s trademark red sole has inspired imitations.

“It’s in the hand of lawyers now,” he says. “It’s one thing to be inspired by people, but just to knock off people is not nice.”

Louboutin began painting the soles red because “it is the color of love. It’s the color of passion. Even if a woman is wearing all black, she might choose a red lip or red nails.”

Christian Louboutin to open at The Galleria in 2016

‘s first Louboutin store will be located in Galleria I near . boutique, will carry women’s and men’s , handbags and small leather goods. The store will not carry the beauty collection.

The designer opened his first boutique in Paris in 1992 and produces more than 100,000 pairs of a year. The red soles actually happened by accident, he told the Chronicle in 2006. His first collection, with all black soles, seemed to lack energy. He borrowed red nail polish from his assistant, who spent hours painting her nails, and applied a touch. Then he added more.

The red soles have seductive powers, he said.

Louboutin’s heels are a favorite with celebrities, from Oprah Winfrey to Angelina Jolie.

The announcement makes ita big month already for the Galleria. Tod’s opened June 1 and La Perla opens Saturday.

The Galleria recently announced a $30 million complete renovation of its luxury wing to complement the construction of a new, state of the art flagship Saks Fifth Avenue store slated to open in spring 2016. The redevelopment project will include the addition of 110,000 square feet of new retail space and the creation of a 14,000 square foot, free standing retail building.

His shoes are worn by Hollywood’s leading ladies on the red carpet and on film. Each year he sells about 340,000 pairs of shoes and has stores all over the globe London, Paris, Jeddah and now No. 32 in Westfield but Christian Louboutin doesn’t see himself as a global brand, just a guy from Paris who still loves his job.

“I see myself as someone who started an adventure when he was young and was pretty lucky,” says Louboutin, 46, who is in Miami attending the Art Basel show when we speak on the phone. “Everything is still a work in progress for me. I still drive my Vespa and I don’t have my driver’s licence. I just don’t see myself as a brand.”

So Louboutin is humble about the business he started in 1992 and still owns privately. The designer, who started his career at a Charles Jourdan factory in Nice, actually still likes to visit his stores and watch women try on his shoes.

Christian Louboutin Lucifer Bow shoe, $1295, (02) 8203 0902 (from December 1).

He says he likes to sit there and watch, listen and learn. He recalls a recent visit to his Paris boutique, which he says is also the easiest way to go on to explain why his brand has worked the world over.

“A woman arrived and she was sexy, almost too sexy, and she tried on my shoes and said, ‘I look chic in this shoe’. Then literally half an hour later another woman arrives who was extremely elegant, extremely chic, and she tries on the same shoes and says, ‘Oh, I look sexy in these’. You see, I add the little thing a woman doesn’t have completely. I unveil what you may have hidden. The same shoe is going to be chic on one woman and sexy on another. That’s very much my trademark.”

The 12 centimetre heel and red sole are also Louboutin trademarks. And, believe it or not, a pair of Christian Louboutins are not $1500 torture devices. “There is this French saying that one has to suffer to be beautiful I don’t agree,” Louboutin says.

Growing up in Paris in a household of women, Louboutin says he understood females better than most men from an early age. “I guess there is something in me that has a feminine approach. I know how important it is for women to look good. I know why you don’t want your leg looking shorter and why you don’t want something around your ankle because it makes your ankle look fat. I don’t always necessarily approach [a new shoe] from the design point of view, I’m more likely to approach from the feminine point of view.”

At an early age Louboutin also developed a fasciation for Parisian dancers, the long legged beauties who danced all night in their heels at venues such as the Moulin Rouge. He still studies and speaks to professional dancers. “They have to be beautiful and be able to perform in those shoes. They cannot be saying, ‘Oh, my feet are killing me’. I also know in every woman there’s a showgirl.”

He’s hoping there are plenty of showgirls in Australia as well. The designer had planned to be in this week for the store opening but the trip has now been pushed back a year.

“I love to have projects and Australia right now is one of my projects. And guess which one feels powerful and sexy?

Like Dr Scholl or Hush Puppies are really sexy, right?

I love shoes and I can walk run and play in heels. I learned long ago that well constructed heels provide support that many flats don’t and permit more activity and stability than it seems.

I couldn’t make myself spend the money, but I almost regret not buying the Louboutins I tried when on holidays last year. For one thing, they are made in different heights, and the sales people ensure that you try each height until you find the one that fits your foot. For another, they are clearly made of something very strong under that leather, because they are solid as rocks, even the most spindly varieties.

And when you find it! Butter soft, but supportive; high enough but with a balance so that the foot rests on the ball and the heel and not on the toes; actual arch support (how does he do that?).

This man isn’t a doctor, but he DOES know feet.

Birkenstocks give me a cramp. Every time. Something doesn’t fit my foot. I tried, really I did. Ballet slippers don’t have enough support (although I liked the DKNY semi ballet semi sneaker thing of some years ago) but I wear them anyway, for short periods. Good heels, well made and well fitting, are both an elegant diversion and strangely a good change from being flat footed all the time.

Christian Louboutin shoes and Sex and the City

God forgive me I interviewed Christian Louboutin while wearing a pair of trainers. Not fancy sci fi ones either but properly old and grimy ones. Louboutin is one of the most famous shoe designers in the world and officially the most prestigious, according to independent ratings company Luxury Institute, which named Christian Louboutin as the most desirable shoe brand in the world for the past three years. He is also the man who is credited, or blamed, for bringing the stiletto back into fashion. So wearing trainers to meet him is a little like suggesting to a Michelin starred chef that we meet at McDonald’s for lunch.

But then whaddyaknow Louboutin turns up to his tiny and stiletto filled office wearing trainers himself. (Although where mine say Converse, his say, in a discreet logo on the side, Christian Louboutin, which would come in handy should he forget his name.)

But he assures me that he does not judge women by their shoes. Well, not exactly. “I look at the face first. And when I look at the face, I try to see the personality and, from that, guess what kind of shoes this girl would have.”

“So what shoe would my face suggest?” I ask. He stares at me very intently for five seconds before answering: “A Dr Marten boot.”

Perhaps he was just tired. He had flown in that morning from Dubai, where he is about to open his 20th boutique with 13 more planned this year and did not sleep on the plane “at all”. And once he warms up and we turn the conversation away from strict business chat, he is really good fun, making dry remarks and then smiling quietly afterwards. At one point I ask if, having shod pretty much every celebrity in the world, from Madonna to France’s first lady, Carla Bruni, there is anyone left he’d like as a customer. His eyes skirt around the office, settling at last on a pair of particularly high black stilettos, studded all around with silver spikes. He turns back and replies, po faced: “The Queen of England.”

For a long time, perfume sales powered the fashion world. Then it became jeans. Now, more than ever, it’s shoes and bags. It is no coincidence that Louboutin arrived in the ’90s, when this switch began. He, Manolo Blahnik and Jimmy Choo’s Tamara Mellon, the Holy Trinity of the luxury footwear market, have helped turn shoes from something you put on your feet to avoid splinters into fetish objects for women. Louboutin is now at the top of that triangle.

Where Manolo Blahnik shoes are either plain or quirky and Jimmy Choos have the distinct sheen of Eurotrash to them, Christian Louboutin shoes say one simple word: sex. Everything about them from their disco styles to the aggressive thrust of the shoe’s curvature and to the almost pornographic red sole, flashing observers from behind as the lady walks away shouts sex.

Seemingly every celebrity under the paparazzi sun, from Lady Gaga to Victoria Beckham, has proclaimed their love of the man. But Louboutin himself proves to have remarkably little interest in the international celebrity scene. Was he star struck when, say, Madonna was photographed wearing his shoes? No, he wasn’t. But he was a little excited when he found out that the first Mrs Johnny Hallyday was a fan “Hallyday is a big singer in France, you know.”

Louboutin also recently received the highest honour a shoe designer can receive these days: his wares are to be featured in the new Sex and the City film. This is not only a major plug but a potentially controversial one, as Manolo Blahnik shoes were such a mainstay of the TV series that the term “Manolos” entered the lexicon. But is Louboutin excited?

“I think it’s a good thing because people tell me it is. I don’t have a TV, you see,” he says with a shrug.

Any awkwardness between him and Blahnik? Another baffled shrug.

He even refused to go on The Oprah Winfrey Show when she did an episode about how much she loves his shoes, which is as close as you can get to being knighted in the US. “They filmed the first part of the show in Paris and made me stand outside in the cold so, of course, I got sick,” he says, still outraged. “So then when they said, ‘Come to Chicago’ [where Winfrey films her show], I said, ‘Are you crazy? I’m sick!”‘

Instead, Louboutin prefers his hobbies: landscaping (there are often plant details on his shoes), trapeze (he has a swing in his studio) and, occasionally, dancing. He recently made a film of himself tap dancing for Simon Fuller’s fashion website, Fashionair, which is a vision of unselfconscious joy (and, yes, he made the shoes).

Is he a regular tap dancer? “Well,” he says with a hint of understatement, “I’ve got rhythm.”

Most of all, he works: supervising the factories, having meetings around the world and then, twice a year, he will isolate himself in one of his four country houses (Egypt, Syria, France, Portugal) while he designs the new collections.

“I never was interested in being part of the fashion world I just wanted to design shoes. I didn’t even know Vogue existed when I was growing up. Vogue, what is that?” he protests.

A few years ago, Louboutin was offered the job of designer at a major fashion label, though he won’t say which one. “And I really was almost offended,” he says, still sounding it. “I mean, the shoe there is a music to it, there is attitude, there’s sound, it’s a movement. Clothes it’s a different story. There are a million things I’d rather do before designing clothes: directing, landscaping. Designing clothes?” His face indicates his opinion of that.

Louboutin was born in 1963 and raised in Paris. His father was a carpenter and his mother was “definitely not” a high heel fan. His four sisters liked “cork wedges”, he remembers, with no fondness. “Pretty much the opposite of what I do now.”

Yet his taste was established in his childhood. When Louboutin was 13, he and his friends would sneak out of school to go to Le Palace, a Paris nightclub, but while his mates looked at the girls on stage, he just looked at their shoes. “Some of the shoes I make today are still inspired by the Palace the disco look, the metal, the glitter.”

He never went to fashion or design school and instead got his training working for, among others, Charles Jourdan, Chanel and Yves Saint Laurent.

He is adamant that he never had any career plan or ambition to own his own company, which I don’t wholly buy. It is very hard to be successful without wanting it very badly, particularly in the fashion business, and Louboutin, for all his Gallic nonchalance, does play the game. He once decided to miss a flight back to Paris from the US so he could spend two more hours in a department store autographing his shoes. “To my favourite hot housewife,” Time magazine claimed he scrawled on one customer’s shoe.

Today, Louboutin shoes are known for two things: price and height. A pair of Louboutin high heels can easily cost upwards of $1100; boots can go for $2000 and higher.

As well as being in the vanguard of higher prices, Louboutin is at the forefront of higher heels, bringing stilettos back into fashion, together with all the contradictions that come with them. Jennifer Lopez once told Harper’s Bazaar magazine that Louboutin’s shoes “kill you. But they’re the sexiest shoes around.” How can immobility be sexy?

At this point, Louboutin starts talking about “the construction of the shoe” and “the direction of the weight” and all the usual noises people make when trying to claim that a high heeled shoe can be comfortable. But the fact is, no matter what the construction, the woman is hoicked up on her toes. The argument about whether or not high heels empower women is fruitless and, after all this time, a little tired.

But even Louboutin seems stumped by the contradiction. When I ask if comfort is an important factor in designing his shoes, he ums and ahs a tad: “It is important because a woman doesn’t look good if she’s not comfortable. But I wouldn’t take it as a compliment if someone looked at one of my shoes and said: ‘Oh, that looks like a comfortable shoe.’

When asked if there is such a thing as a too high heel, he replies: “There is a heel that is too high to walk in, certainly. But who cares? You don’t have to walk in high heels.”

Christian Louboutin Pumps

(Christian Louboutin Daffodile Pumps, Cushnie Et Ochs Perforated Leather Leggings, Cosabella Suave Tube, ASOS Crop Top with Racer Back in Rib, Chanel Cuff)

Perforated leather pieces are a rarity, but when you do find them you should definitely snag them if you can. As long as the leather is thin and buttery soft, the perforations make the pants lighter and not quite as heavy as all leather leggings. These are extra long so I like to scrunch them up at the ankles. You can really sense the texture of the leather as well when they are scrunched up. I gotten many requests to wear my Christian Louboutin daffodile pumps. They are extremely comfortable and even fit my wide toe box quite nicely. Out of all my Christian Louboutin shoes I would say these are the most comfortable. I am also looking at the nude version of these pumps because I love them so much. An off the shoulder look was accomplished on top by layering a cropped rib tank underneath a Cosabella tube. This tube is amazing in that it can be styled in at least 14 different ways. You could wear it as a scarf or a long dress in addition to the way I am wearing it here. It is made in Italy and thanks to the cashmere blend it is extremely soft.
