Christian Louboutin Shoe Tattoo
Christian Louboutin launches a bespoke service which offers shoppers an opportunity to create a one-of-a-kind shoe.
Louboutin’s mens boutiques in Paris, London, New York and Los Angeles have launched the Tattoo Parlor, a concept born from the designer’s admiration for the art of tattooing. This creative service will allow customer’s own tattoos to be interpreted as fine embroideries on a pair of shoes, creating a unique and personalized pair.
‘It started as an idea of a present for a friend, I made a pair of shoes for him embroidered with his tattoo. A lot of my friends have tattoos, I realised that it’s not only just a part of pop culture but a bit of a map on someone’s body which says something about people. A part of their life, like an armour or a crest. Instead of carrying someone else’s crest on a loafer, I thought it would be a modern armouries , your own crest on your own shoe. Instead of a classical made to measure bespoke shoe, which other men’s shoe brands do very well, this is my modern approach to bespoke.’ – Christian Louboutin
The service is also available for ladies, where a choice of four classic styles is offered.
