Though it may seem impossible, Christian Louboutin’s iconic red-soled shoes may have just met its match with the launch of the Loubiworld fragrance collection.
To bring the line to life, Louboutin collaborated with friend and French illustrator, Hélène Tran. The famed designer notes that his friend’s “ethereal designs echo both the poetry and humor of each universe.”
And that they surely do. The red bottle is reminiscent of the sole of the fashion house’s luxe, world-famous stilettos. Each bottle features an artful silver topper that’s born to reflect each of the seven unique fragrances.
“This collection is a bit like following me inside my mind,” says Louboutin says in a statement. “The fragrances are based on seven different quasi-imaginary lands, and each one presents itself to me with its own scent, color, shape, and materials. These lands are my own unique creation, they’re neither 100 percent real nor 100 percent fantastical.”
“Often they are born from a memory that has lingered in my mind, usually sparked by a voyage, a story or a scent that I just couldn’t forget,” he continues. “This is what I shared with the perfumers who helped create a fragrance for each of these places: the scent, the feeling, the memory that I have when I visit them in my imagination.” Louboutin entrusted perfumers Christophe Raynaud, Nicolas Beaulieu, Daphné Bugey, and Marie Salamagne, to come up with the collection’s fragrances.
These fragrances are perfect for the fashion-lover who understands the power of a Louboutin heel. They’re also ideal for gifting to yourself or someone else and conveniently come housed inside the label’s signature red gift box.
