Christian Louboutin Reopens London Store With Modish Redesign
Luxury French designer's store renovation speaks to the brand's style
Christian Louboutins have been deemed the Most Prestigious Women’s Shoe by The Luxury Institute for three years in a row, an honor that many would agree is well deserved. Since its founding in 1991, the brand has become increasingly popular, being worn by celebrities like Jennifer Lopez, Sarah Jessica Parker, Nicki Minaj, and even Madonna. The clientele has helped the company move from its headquarters in Paris France to New York, Rome, London, and everywhere in between. Fortunately, the success has only made broadened the goals of the fashion brand, and now Christian Louboutin is ready to take their locations to the next level, starting with their first London store.
The Motcombe Street Christian Louboutin store, located in the Knightsbridge section of London has undergone a huge renovation. Designed by Pentagram, the remodeled space features a red carpet reminiscent of the luxury designer’s signature red bottoms, and is home to women’s shoes, purses and other leather items. To compliment the carpet, the interior is decked out with plush cream colored ottomans, complete with red piping. Brass wall-stands show off select purses and shoes, while others sit inside the glass counter part of a brass structure that also serves as the cash register. In addition, the back wall and ceiling features an embossed scalloped leaf design. Art-deco furnishings and a custom-made light sculpture finish off the 42-sq-meter locale.
Christian Louboutin is a brand that is synonymous with elegance, style, luxury, and innovation, and thanks to this redesign- their Motcomb Street store is a perfect reflection of the saleable items it showcases.
