Cake designed by Victoria Zagami of Made In Heaven Cakes.
Fifty-two years ago today, a star was born in Paris. Christian Louboutin, the soul that would redefine the sole, came into being, poised to change the face of footwear forever. Louboutins, as we affectionately call them, need no explanation. We know their signature scarlet flash, their perfectly constructed shapes and proportion. They are the shoes that make us feel like we could conquer the world, one Pigalle pump at a time. And how could we forget their elegant handbag counterparts? The ornate and studded satchels are masterfully built to hold their own next to a point-toe icon.
Barneys New York celebrated today with a treat almost as decadent as a pair of Louboutins themselves—a tributary cake recreating a few of the designer’s signature styles, only sweeter. We’d suggest you jump on the bandwagon and celebrate with us—that is, by snapping up one of the beauties below from Barneys.com.
Happy Birthday, Mr. Louboutin. May your legendary accessories continue to grace us for seasons, years, and decades to come.
