Christian Louboutin: Sexual heeling
You can immediately tell when a woman is wearing a pair of Louboutins: her posture is perfect and she doesn't walk anywhere.
Whether covered in sequins and frills of ribbon, or simply in highly polished patent black, the French designer's shoes are known for their lengthening, tautening and perkifying effects. And a recent addition to that list is their orgasmic potential.
"What is sexual in a high heel is the arch of the foot,"christian louboutin sale said in an interview last week, "because it is exactly the position of a woman's foot when she orgasms. So, putting your foot in a heel, you are putting yourself in a possibly orgasmic situation."
One might think this had already been scientifically proven, given the regular marriage proposals within his boutiques, the label's cult status and the adoration for Louboutin's shoes. Having started cheap christian louboutin shoes the business in 1991 with just one employee (himself), Louboutin now heads up 420 people across 35 stores in 16 countries. His headquarters on Paris's Rue Jean-Jacques Rousseau started off as one building and have spread the length of the street.
- But although his name is more usually under people's feet than on their lips,cheap louboutin shoes is being more and more widely talked about. He marks the forthcoming 20th anniversary of his eponymous label not only with the publication of a veritable breezeblock of a book this week but also with an infamous court case that has dragged on since April and could mean an industry-wide reappraisal of creative intellectual property rights, patents and trademarks.
- Earlier this week, jewellery brand Tiffany weighed into the courtroom debate with an amicus curiae to support Louboutin, 47, who is suing French house Yves Saint Laurent for embellishing one of its shoes with a red sole, and was denied an injunction against the label in August. The scarlet underside (supposedly Pantone 18, Chinese Red) has long been a defining feature of Louboutin's footwear, and was patented as such by the designer in 2007. "I selected the colour because it is engaging, flirtatious, memorable and the colour of passion," he said then in a petition to the court.
