The temperatures may be rising, but Christian Louboutin has the colder season in mind. Get your mouses and touch pads ready because today the famously red-soled brand made their Fall/Winter 2011 pre-collection available for viewing online with several styles that you can purchase now or pre-order.
The opening page, shown above, features a winter wonderland complete with falling snow, icicles, a giant snowman, and a cameo of Mr. Louboutin himself a la Where's Waldo. The collection is broken down into the following categories: High, Extremely High, Booty, Mini and Flats, Day Bags, Night Bags, and Boys.
There are black shagreen lace ups for the gentlemen, houndstooth and leather combos for ladies who like high heels, towering jewel tone suede numbers for those who seek even greater heights, metallic gold for booty lovers (hey, we're talking about footwear now), and glitter with grosgrain for those who prefer lower altitudes. In the accessories world, the offerings for evening bags featured sequins, tassels, snakeskin, and plumes. While day bags run the gamut from leather hobo styles like the Marianne to more miniature cases like the Sweet Charity Small in python. Of course there were also day options in fur, leopard prints, and bold pieces with feathers on the strap as in the Artemis.
