Bold autumnal colors, rich textures and a clever combination of whimsy and sophistication are the essence of the Autumn Winter 2013 Christian Louboutin collection . Deep jewel tones, tartan fabrics, delicate lace and strong silhouettes enhance the collection’s diverse spirit and bring to life inspirations behind the designs.

Louboutin’s Pigalle pointed-toe stiletto, with the unmistakable red sole, has emerged as an iconic staple.  This autumn winter collection sees a new shape that has been refashioned with an even slimmer, sleeker heel which is seen on the styles “So Kate” in a metallic bronze specchio, the blue kohl suede “Geo Pump” with gold rocker-chic stud detail, and the seductive, barely over the knee, “Armura Boot” in vibrant red leather.

This collection sees the emergence of more themes and elements present in both the women’s and men’s designs, creating a continuity of concepts and consistency of detail. The Zazou Flat is the women’s answer to the New Platers for men: a pointy yet classic lace up oxford, updated, and re-mastered by Christian Louboutin available in exotic blue-grey stingray, metallic bronze python, leopard print pony, black polished calfskin and patent leather.

 A handmade structured bow adorns several styles such the elegant, four inch, evening Grusanda sandal, the lady-like Gruotta kitten heel and the stylish Gine flat

On the Resillissima ankle boot and Lagoula mary-jane, sheer panels of delicate diamond pattern lace ever so slightly graze the skin, highlighting the curved arch of the foot and elongating the leg.
