Christian Louboutin’s shoe designs are set to be used by Bella Freud. Christian said he was delighted when the fashion designer – who has been friends with the footwear legend for more than 20 years – approached him about having his designs on a capsule collection of her knitwear.
Fashionistas who are keen to have shoes on their sweater, as well as their feet, might be delighted with the news, just as Christian seems to be. He said: “I have always loved Bella’s jumpers, so I couldn’t have been happier when she asked me to give her designs which, Bella thought, would look great once knitted.”
Bella’s knitwear – which is going to be made from 100 per cent super-fine merino cashwool – will be available from stores in mid-July, which will be perfect timing to help people dress to impress for the summer. She hopes to funk up the black and green clothing by including some Lurex glitter.
