SEEING STARS: Christian Louboutin will make his Moda Operandi debut in celebration of the e-tailer’s fifth anniversary. The French shoe designer is the first in a series of créateurs to celebrate the site’s birthday with a limited-edition range of styles.
Louboutin has designed two celestial-inspired shoes that will launch Friday. A heavily embellished mule will sell for $2,200 and a pointed flat will retail for $2,000. Both styles come in a limited production run of 45 units.
Shoppers can choose to have their zodiac sign represented on the shoes, and will also have the option to monogram the shoes with their initials or date of birth, which will be hand-stitched at Louboutin’s atelier.
The limited-edition collection is the first time Louboutin has sold his goods on Moda Operandi.
