Christian Louboutin has launched a capsule collection to celebrate his 20th anniversary.
The French footwear designer has created 20 styles of shoes and six bags inspired by his career, which will be sold at a pop-up shop in Selfridges, London, from February 27, before going on sale worldwide in March and he is thrilled by the 'history' of the collection.
The company said in a statement: 'Each style included in this special collection is rich with history, full of life and carries with it a unique story of creation and inspiration. These styles are moments in the life and evolution of a designer, the women who covet these objects of desire and the flourishing brand which is instantly recognisable by its unmistakable red soles. The innovation and imagination behind Louboutin's mesmerising shoes and his utter devotion to women have impressed an influential mark on the world of design and have established him as one of the world's most visionary and important shoemakers.'
Christian revealed he was delighted to celebrate the 'first generation' of his company but looks forward to what the brand has in store for its future.
He told vogue.co.uk: 'In France, 20 years defines a generation. This is a celebration of the first generation of this brand; an anniversary of its first young adventure.'
