Christian Louboutin shoes (available at Saks Fifth Avenue and Net-a-Porter) are well known for their shiny red soles and spot on perfectly trendy styles every season. Christian Louboutin’s fall/winter 2016 ad campaign is all about glam rock ’70s. Each shoe is amazing, featured prominently in each and every shot. Nothing in the shoot overpowers these shoes, and it is hard to believe that anything could. The Christian Louboutin fall 2016 collection is brimming with unfiltered attitude and the visual narration of confidence and assertiveness is inspiring.
Louboutin has been quoted saying: “It was a period where it was fun to have an attitude instead of trying to look very normal – people were showing off a bit, being a bit loud. They had an attitude, were proud of having an attitude and played with it, they were playing with their own femininity.” He has certainly shown this to us with every inch of this campaign dripping with the unapologetic attitude he mentions.
Christian Louboutin shoes are not only well known for being sultry, but also endure the fickleness and revolving door expiration dates on what is in and what is out of style. With the quote on his inspiration for this ’70s disco themed ad campaign, we can see why. Not a single centimeter of this lookbook is boring, everything is remarkable.
The Christian Louboutin fall/winter 2016 shoe lookbook was photographed by Sofia & Mauro, giving us all an unshielded view into Louboutin’s party day reminiscences. The glittering red and gold backdrops, brightly colored shoes, pearlescent eyeshadows, fur and sequins show off an imaginative, limitless gift for design. The styling had several leopard print bodysuits, shimmering tights, fishnet tights and sparkling sequined pants and neon eyeshadow.
Christian Louboutin’s fall 2016 ad campaign features bright colors and a throwback shimmer to the disco era. There is no subtlety; this line does not need it and is not interested in it. Rather the bold style, lines and colors are for the equally bold and colorful. The shiny red of the signature soles is matched by a shiny red lip and nail polish. Overall the shoes are amazing, every one of them brimming with a style and strength of character all their own.
The Christian Louboutin Mercura booties stole my heart and are my definitive favorite of this ad campaign. The gold wings are a nice touch that like everything else in this collection, fit in perfectly. Honorable mentions go to the richly colored Lououdance and Tacoluna, Victorina, Belfeconica, Noemi and Cybersandale.
The Wavy booties are nice as well. The entire fall 2016 campaign is interesting eye candy that will honestly fit into innumerable wardrobes and personal styles. There is no doubt that Christian Louboutin had a lot of fun in the ‘70s and we are reaping the benefits of this in spades.
There is life in the Louboutin fall 2016 ad campaign, brightly glittering and unapologetically vivid.
