Christian Louboutin Middle East launches the Spring Summer 2016 collection at their latest and largest boutique in the region, in The Avenues Mall, Kuwait. Located in the Prestige Area of the mall, the new boutique, measuring at 190 meters of retail space, offers products across all categories – women’s and men’s shoes, day and evening handbags, small leather goods and beauty. This is the second Christian Louboutin boutique in Kuwait.
Created with New York based architects, 212box, the boutique’s design is based upon a geometric wonderland where cubed collages engulf the shoes and bags, placing them somewhere between painting and sculpture. Entering at the façade, four types of marble are puzzled together to create skewed apertures at various scales all while framing the windows. Each storefront window, finished in a polished brass, provide a framed view into the colorful store inside.
Throughout the store, custom-designed geometric artist panels form a colorful backdrop to the SS16 collection. In the Women’s space, a custom handbag display wall highlights the newest styles of the upcoming season, from the sleek Paloma day bag, to the fresh Triloubi, a versatile, compact cross-body or shoulder bag perfect for the Parisian (or Parisian-at-heart) girl on the go. The large collection of women’s shoes are showcased in the iconic coves highlighting styles such as the sculpted Megavamp stiletto and Miluna Sling – the perfect evening style with gold and lace details.
A larger artist panel adorns the walls of the Men’s space to display the wide array of men’s city shoes and sneakers, including SS16 styles such as the sleek and chic Cousin Charles and the Gondolier sneaker for the man looking for some laid-back luxury.
A dedicated beauty space was custom designed for the boutique, given that a woman’s beauty has always been at the center of Louboutin’s inspiration. Showcasing nail colour and the recently launched lip color, the boutique is one of two locations in the Middle East to sell the full beauty offering.
