20 Years, 20 Pairs: Barneys Fêtes the Legacy of CHRISTIAN LOUBOUTIN

He is a wizard that crafts leathers and feathers and lace into the exotic, personality-laden footwear we can’t live without. His designs make our legs look that much longer, give us the tools to be seductive and flirtatious and have, no doubt, been the sole instigators of many epic love affairs.

This year, Christian Louboutin celebrates 20 years in the business and Barneys is thrilled to help kick off the celebrations this November by launching Louboutin’s anniversary book, Christian Louboutin, with photograph contributions by film director David Lynch and photographer Philippe Garcia and a forward by actor John Malkovich, available online and in stores beginning October 25.

And that’s not all. Louboutin lovers: make space in your closets now, because a thrilling part of this fête will be the unveiling of Christian Louboutin’s limited edition pair of shoes designed exclusively for Barneys New York. They are so fun, so show-stopping and utterly Louboutin, you might want to start building a shrine for them now. (We kid you not).

Because we can’t keep a secret, check back here every day to view a new featured style and a piece of our shoe puzzle, which will be fully unveiled on November 1. Then, you’ll have to scramble to be the lucky owner of one of just 20 available pairs.
