Christian Louboutin‘s high heels have become one of the most coveted luxury items in the past few years, but for retro lovers the choice among his well crafted shoes is somewhat limited. Beyond the (admittedly fantastic) basics, many of his designs are garishly modern. These Peplum shoes, however, are anything but.
Clearly inspired by 20s and 30s style, the design uses art deco motifs and lines on both the peplum design on the vamp, and in the strap shapes. The result is an eye-grabbing instant classic that doesn’t fall foul of fashion’s ticking clock.
They’re available online in the Net-a-Porter sale now for £315.
