Swit-swoo! Christian Louboutin Loubi Zeppa appliquéd wedges
If you've visited the Louboutin exhibition at London's Design Museum in the past couple of weeks, you'll certainly recognise the theme of these eye-catching shoes, which mirrors the sign welcoming visitors to the epic footwear display. Featuring fun, circus-style lettering on their soles, the sandals will add va-va-voom to any summer outfit.
The best thing about wedges as far as fashion designers are concerned is their endlessly customisable appeal: like blank canvasses to be worn on the feet, they offer maximum possibility for creativity. It comes as no surprise to us that Monsieur Louboutin should rise to that challenge, and he's done so here with aplomb.
What we love best about the appliqued lettering and motifs used here is how tactile and generous they are: the silky fabric used to make them is of tremendous quality and reminds us of the stickers we used to collect in our scrapbooks as schoolkids. They add a playful and colourful note to the style, and will draw a million admiring glances. Net-a-Porter is currently selling them for £625 if you just can't resist...
