LOUBOUTIN’S LONDON MAN: Christian Louboutin has set the location for his newest men’s boutique — London’s Dover Street. The 1,290-square-foot store will stand at 35 Dover Street in Mayfair, next to APC and nearby to Rei Kawakubo’s Dover Street Market and Acne’s London store on the street. The new store will offer the widest selection of Louboutin’s men’s shoes and bags in the U.K.
The space, which is set to bow in November, is near Louboutin’s women’s boutique on Mayfair’s Mount Street. The London store follows the opening of the designer’s men’s boutique in Paris, which launched last September, and a men’s store in New York’s Meatpacking District, which is due to open in August. Meanwhile, a Los Angeles store is also set to open in the fall.
