Fetish, burlesque and fantasy: these are just a few of christian louboutin’s favourite things. Transitioning from summer to fall, this ongoing inspiration is reinvigorated in a new collection of fetish sandals—the Cage. With an exquisite focus on lines, curves and materials, the Cage collection beautifully illustrates Christian Louboutin’s creative process, which often involves allowing the pleasure of drawing to inform the final shape of the shoe. With each design, the collection hints at subtle expressions of intimacy and seduction, whilst accentuating a woman’s body through carefully placed straps and, on select styles, a new fetish heel that mimics the curve of a woman’s leg. Featured in a diverse range of this season’s stand-out materials and colours, the collection juxtaposes high-gloss, light reflecting materials against supple mattes that absorb light, alluding to the tactile surfaces of a woman's boudoir.
