I don’t like accessories with lips on them. I don’t know why. Maybe it’s because it just seems wrong, somehow, to have a giant mouth anywhere other than… well, your mouth, really…. or maybe it’s because there’s just something a bit trashy about them. Who knows. The point is, I don’t like them, and while it pains me to be critical of yet another pair of shoes by the God of Shoes, Christian Louboutin, I don’t feel he’s left me with a whole lot of choice here, has he?
With these ‘Kiss Me’ pumps, Mr Louboutin has taken what is a very nice black patent wedge and… ruined it. Why has he done it? What made him think, "I know, I’ll stick a giant pair of lips on these – that’ll work!" No, I don’t want to kiss you, Christian. In fact, I feel a bit betrayed – seeing a shoe like this from you is like finding out that Santa Claus doesn’t exist. And you just know that some people are going to buy these and wear them with the Lulu Guinness ‘Lips’ clutch we featured a few weeks ago, don’t you? Do you really want to have that on your conscience?
