The brand is responsible for the legendary red-lacquered soles. The self-named Christian Louboutin brand was launched in 1991 and became synonymous with their sky-high stiletto heels. From its early days, Louboutin has had an A-List clientele, with Princess Caroline of Monaco as the brand’s first customer. The brand quickly developed a cult-following, bringing together celebrities from across the spectrum. Louboutin’s iconic red-lacquered soles have their own unique Pantone colour.
