|Mount Street Louboutin|
Anyone who knows me knows I am an absolute addict to the red sole.
Not least my boyfriend.
So when I received the invitation to the preview of the SS12 Pre-collection in Mount Street, I jumped for joy.
I brought along my friend which is a Loubi virgin, she is the more conservative, sensible type so the opposite of me. But I needed to open her eyes to the world of red soles and painstakingly high heels.
To honour the evening I wore my black calf grain Daffodils, very comfortable and extremely high.
We arrived on the red carpet (inside the shop) and was instantly greeted with a glass of champagne. My kind of party.
The front of the shop was filled with beautiful creations with spikes and bright colours, some of the heels were very similar to current AW11 with a few added extra details.
|Asteroid- in the correct height!|
The collection is an array of statement heels which are not for the faint hearted, they include metallic brights, Mexican beaded, rock star studded and bejewelled Bollywood.
The collection is inspired by heels from the 1940’s through to 1970’s and this is really noticeable in the collection.
I immediately fell for the Asteroid, here seen in brown leather, python and silver spikes.
They also come in black with gold spikes which is just up my street, but only Motcomb street was to get them in 160 (I tend not to go below that).
As i was unashamedly drooling over the merchandise waiters came around with little Mexican fajita parcels wrapped in Louboutin paper, absolutely delicious but oh so messy.
At the back of the store was whatever had not sold out of the SS11 collection, I spotted these little gems below, they are cat paws hand stitched on to the shoe with crystals covering the heels, divine and so uncomfortable that even just standing in them for 30 seconds made me wince (I walk 10 hours straight in 6” heels without wincing) and coming in at the mere price of just over 3k, i decided it was not worth it. But beautiful they were.
Not being able to purchase and walk out of the shop with the shoes made me feel like a diabetic in a sweet shop. It was painful.
I didn’t put my name down for any of the shoes as I know myself, i am an impulse buyer.
If they were to call me 3 months down the line reminding me of a pair of shoes that has just come in the chance is very slim i’d be interested, unless they were magnificent.
That also gives me an excuse to “pop by” the shop to see if something new is in.
My craving of the red sole has been satisfied for yet another week.
