Fancy moms who want their little ones to have their own red bottoms sends a lot of request to Christian louboutin
What they really want are teeny tiny versions of the shoe master most iconic designs for their kids to play around in. After a successful collaboration on baby shoe with Gwyneth Paltrow and Goop last year, Louboutin has decided to revisit the idea with a new capsule collection. The three pairs of booties come in two beautiful prints and one bright red silk.
“I love the idea of transposing the proportions of women’s shoe detailing onto a baby shoe,” Louboutin says. “That’s how I worked on the bow pattern. I wanted to give it a Walt Disney cartoon–type look which parents, including myself, usually fall in love with.” The designer is a father to toddler twin girls and in a sense, this has been a passion project for him and an idea that he’s had for a very long time, even before the Goop partnership. It was also, as he notes, “a new challenge for our artisans to work on baby shoes, since the techniques are completely different from those you use for a men’s or women’s shoe.” He adds, “We had to work very closely on the craftsmanship but I am very happy with the result.”
