Christian Louboutin Classic – the Pigalle shoe
With a pointed toe, vertiginous heel and signature red sole, you can see just why the Pigalle has grown to become a Louboutin classic.
Named for one of Christian Louboutin’s favorite neighborhoods in Paris, stiletto heel and pointed toe have captured the hearts and minds of Red Sole lovers around the globe.
Born in Autumn/Winter 2004, Pigalle has quickly grown into a modern classic, a treasured staple of any woman’s wardrobe, and remains a recurring style within Louboutin’s seasonal collections. In the designer’s own words, ‘It’s not a seasonal shoe, but one that lasts a lifetime. You can wear it in winter or summer; it’s suede or leather, shiny or matte. But it reaches its maximum expression in black patent leather, because of the colour of the sole and the precision of the design.’
The signature shoe named after the designer’s favorite Parisian quarter, Pigalle, made its first appearance during Fall/Winter 2004-2005. Since then, the steep curved stiletto with its pointed toe and needle-sharp heel has gathered disciples the world over, not only for its dizzying height but its transformation each season from the original glossy black to sparkling sequins or sleek snakeskin.
Oh, how cute is Blake Lively in her polka-dotted ruffled sexy pants?! The stylish celebrity’s pointed-toe, black patent Christian Louboutin heels, plain white tee & Chanel purse were a perfect understated match to her blue spotted Ungaro high-waited skinny pants. Unfortunately, if you want to buy Mrs. Reynolds 4 inch Pigalle stilettos, they seem to be sold out everywhere.
