PARIS — Many Paris boutiques close during the August doldrums. Christian Louboutin used the occasion to quietly open his first men’s shop in the world here in the Galerie Véro-Dodat — and already he’s been selling some 25 pairs of shoes a day.
Emboldened by the robust response, he said he soon plans to open a dedicated men’s boutique in New York, not far from his Horatio Street location, and another in London’s Mayfair district.
