Christian Louboutin is helping Nordstrom celebrate its New York City debut in a big way. The designer has lent his hand to creating an exclusive capsule collection of styles for men and women inspired by travel.
The line, consisting of 46 pieces of handbags, leather goods, footwear for men and women, travel sets and novel gift items, is showcased in a special Christian Louboutin pop-up shop at the center of the new Nordstrom’s ground floor, which opened to the public today.
“Nordstrom has been a great partner over the past decade. Being both family businesses, we share very important values such as independence, creativity and a personalized approach. I’m delighted to unveil this capsule developed exclusively for them, revisiting some of my core inspirations, such as foreign cultures, decorative arts and architecture,” Louboutin said in a statement.
He was inspired by the pyramids of Egypt and jungles of Asia, all of which can be seen through prints and patterns on wedge sandals, patent pumps, sneakers, loafers and more. Ranging from $45 to $4,890, the capsule will be available exclusively at 18 select Nordstrom doors and on Nordstrom.com.
In addition, the luxury brand has a permanent shop-in-shop located on Nordstrom’s designer shoe floor.
Starting in February 2020, Nordstrom will sponsor a exhibition of the Louboutin brand, set to open at the Palais de la Porte Dorée in Paris during Fashion Week.
