Christian Louboutin’s berry red alpaca ‘Yoyo Zeppa’ platform pumps. Hmmm.


We didn’t think we’d ever meet a pair of Christian Louboutin shoes we didn’t love, but colour us amazed because we don’t think our bank manager has much to fear from these ones.

Oh, we love the shape. It’s a classic high heeled, platform peep toe, after all – what’s not to love about it? But the alpaca uppers on the other hand? Those we think we could live without. They’re … hairy. We don’t like our feet to be hairy. And $620 of hairy? We’re going to pass on it. If you, on the other hand, need these in your life right now, you can buy them at Bluefly.

Christian Louboutin’s Alpaca Lamb Clutch looks like it might bite you in the butt…


One thing Christian Louboutib definitely did design is this Alpaca Lamb Clutch, which is ….well, it’s certainly different, isn’t it? And somehow I think the design is probably safe enough from all those pesky copycats. This is the clutch version of the Alpaca Satchel Louboutin released last year, and I’m going to be charitable and say that you could wear it with a very simple black dress, and it would have a certain amount of "wow" factor. Would people be "wow-ing" at the beauty of it, though, or would they just be thinking, "wow, she done captured an alien life form and skinned it to make a handbag"?

I’m going to leave that decision up to you, fair readers. For now, let me just point out the thing I really do love about this bag, which is the tiny little shoes which make up the clasp. Nice touch, Mr. L…

Christian Louboutin’s Scary Studded ‘Donjon’ Over the Knee Boots

Christianlouboutinboots You weren’t particularly impressed with Christian Louboutin’s attempt to add studs to a a stiletto ankle boot, but, undeterred, the man has clearly decided the world needs more of this lethal-looking footwear, and has come up with the Donjon over the knee boot, complete with scary studs.

Now, when I say "scary" here, I’m not just being facetious: I’m as clumsy as all hell, and those studs look pretty sharp to me when you view them in close up on the Net-a-Porter site. Imagine if you crossed your legs while wearing them! Or brushed up against a small child or household pet. Ouch!

I suspect these should probably come with some sort of health warning, but should they come with a fashion warning, too? Over to you…

Christian Louboutin sues Oh, Deer! and trademarks his red soles


It’s not hard to see why Christian Louboutin is feeling just a little bit pissed with Oh, Deer! right now, is it? Sure, lots of designers have copied the famous red soles (Hi, Steve Madden!) but Oh, Deer! have made a career out of it, copying almost every single design Louboutin produces, from the (red) sole up. No wonder the designer is seeing red (sorry).

As well as suing Oh, Deer!, though, Louboutin is also in the process of trying to trademark the idea of putting red soles on shoes. He’ll have his work cut out with this one, as Oh, Deer! are far from the only offenders: I guess my main question here is why he’s waited so long to put a stop to all the copycats.

Christian Louboutin has got to be kidding me…


So, it’s good to know Christian Louboutin has a sense of humour, isn’t it? I mean, humour is good, right? Are these
Green Python "Pesce" Pumps good, though, that’s what I’d like to know. I don’t know about you, but I think I’m going to go with "not so much, really". I can see that they’re fun, of course, and hey, everyone likes fun. But do you really want to walk around looking like a fish ate your foot? Like I said – not so much. It’s just a good job he still has fabulous creations like these to redeem him, no?

P.S. Mr Louboutin? Christian? You know I still love you, right?

Christian Louboutin’s ‘Kiss Me’ wedges. Because you’ve always wanted to have lips on your feet…


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?
