Christian Louboutin's Boston boutique.

Christian Louboutin is to open a new retail space in Boston.

The accessories designer has set up shop inside the city’s Copley Place Mall, occupying a 1,250-square-foot space.

The store is decorated with gold accents, velvet fabrications and hand-painted Italian tiles from Louboutin’s personal collection. It is the brand’s 138th store.

The designer said of the opening in a statement: “Boston is a very sophisticated city and we have a lot of clients from Boston in our stores. I have one of my godsons studying there so I will have the pleasure to visit and spend some time there.”

The store is to be officially celebrated with a cocktail event Thursday night.
