Christian’s clan Mr Louboutin is a busy man. At London Fashion Week Men’s last month, the models who walked the E. Tautz runway show wore one of his exclusive, never-before-seen A/W17 styles: a sturdy suede lace-up in dark autumnal shades. Coinciding with this sneak peek, Christian Louboutin celebrated the launch of its S/S17 range centred around a newly-designed coat of arms. The motif is embroidered onto suede slippers that can be worn as mules or sling backs, and is encrusted with stars, pearls and spikes on a range of supple calfskin bags. From £295, 17 Mount Street, W1K, christianlouboutin.com
