Louboutins are right up there with our main men, Manolo and Jimmy. While we don’t exactly have a closet full, a pair of his Cataribbon metallic gold platforms were our go to pair all last summer. They’re ridiculously high, but easy to walk in.
We love that Christian Louboutin, the king of red-sole shoes, is partnering with the luxe One & Only resorts to create a limited collection. (He’s rumoured to be a fan of the Maldives resort.) The shoes, including the pair shown at left, are available at their breathtaking resorts at Mauritius, the Bahamas, Cabo, Dubai and the Maldives. We’ve only had dinner at the resort in the Bahamas and the resorts aren’t exactly the place to go with your girls. As our friend All About the Pretty says, “You don’t go to a One & Only with a boyfriend. You go with your husband. On your honeymoon.” We would also add: Or with you celebrity boyfriend, like John Mayer.
Christian said of the shoes in the recent issue of Travel & Leisure: Espadrilles are the perfect shoe for dressing up on vacation. The festive colors of these flats, wedges and platforms are meant to be shown off under the holiday sun, but they make for a pretty nice souvenir back home, too.” We couldn’t agree more.
Fortunately for all of us who aren’t honeymooning or famous, you can also buy their shoes at their NYC or London stores. These shoes are practically a vacation in themselves!
