Marie Antoinette Gives Louboutin a Leg Up

 

By RACHEL TAN

Legions of Christian Louboutin devotees are
losing their heads over the limited edition Marie Antoinette shoe collection. Inspired
by the 17th century French queen and icon of excess, only 36 pairs
of these candy-coloured platforms have been created.

In collaboration with world renowned
embroider, Franco Indian Textile Group, Louboutin channels the extravagant
sartorial style of Marie Antoinette, showering the satin platforms with a
deluge of coloured beads, chiffon ruffles and velvet linings. The ankle strap
features a removable porcelain doll face wearing the distinctive coif of the
queen.

Available in deep turquoise, pink or yellow, the shoes were on display
in
Singapore till 17 May but have since been relocated to Jakarta, Indonesia
