Christian Louboutin: Experience an Artisan at Work
The Christian Louboutin Dover Street Men’s Boutique welcomes an artisan from Milan to demonstrate centuries-old Italian leather craftsmanship and innovative design in the making of their collection, with a focus on its signature leather tassels.
Christian Louboutin was created in 1992 when Louboutin opened his first boutique in Paris. An artist with a true passion for shoes, his designs are unique and instantly recognizable, thanks in part to their signature and now trademarked red lacquered soles.
The Men’s collections present a collision of shoe-making past and present, underlining Louboutin’s deep regard for skill and natural curiosity for invention, offering an innovative fusion of craftsmanship and timeless design.
Bench Made styles are brought to life by artisans at the Maison’s Neapolitan base; a small, family-owned factory acknowledged as one of the most versatile and skilled in the world of luxury. Use of machinery is disregarded wherever possible to allow traditional techniques to flourish, each hand touching the style during manufacturing a triumph.
Their métier, honed over decades, brings a legacy of knowledge, precision detailing and talent allowing them to bring to life the ingenuity of Louboutin’s designs. The extraordinary depth of leather work knowledge within the inter-generational team matched in excellence only by the specially sourced materials with which they work.
A celebration of centuries-old Italian leather manufacturing and boundary-pushing design, they demonstrate the beauty to be found when skill meets abandoned creativity.
