Christian Louboutin unveils gender-less capsule collection during immersive event at Paris Fashion Week
Christian Louboutin unveiled its first genderless capsule collection during an immersive event today at Paris Fashion Week.
The “Our Angels” boot capsule pays homage to the androgynous style of glam-rock icons. Sizes range from 36 to 46 (or 5.5 to 13 in US sizes.)

The capsule features a range of boot looks – from leopard print to lace-up shoes, and the highlight – a boot adorned with intricate jewelry.
The designer reflected on the genderless fashion movement in a 2020 FN cover story. “We saw this great moment when shoes have no gender. We certainly have men who wear heels, so we have to go all the way to the waistline. [Gender fluidity] is not a trend. It’s a deep psychological evolution,” he said.
The new collection was presented as part of “Loubillusions”, a hybrid digital / physical event. The label has explored various digital formats over the past few seasons – at a time when the pandemic has ended in-person presentations – including augmented reality, 3D and games.
Today’s event took place at L’Atelier des Lumières in Paris, a museum dedicated to digital art exhibits that contains over 3,000 square meters of seamless floor-to-ceiling projections. Four animations – including a Japanese garden and golden waterfalls – played in a continuous loop.
Another start? The Carasky, a bag inspired by Christian Louboutin’s passion for precious stones and crowns.
Coinciding with the event, a Loubillusions webzine offers digital viewers a full experience, with various animations mixed with close-ups of the designs.
