Let’s be honest, when brands release unisex collections they have, in the past, tended to follow the same old script: boxy, oversized silhouettes in muted neutral shades. The words boring, predictable, and bland spring to mind. That was until Christian Louboutin dropped their game-changing Our Angels collection. The new capsule is bold, expressive, and glam, proving once and for all that gender-neutral does not have to mean sauceless. There is nothing bland about these accessories, baby!
The collection includes two bags and five pairs of unapologetically fabulous boots – two ankle-high, two knee-high and a pair that skims the thigh – all heeled and crafted from opulent materials including leopard-print leather, velvet and satin, rich brocades, refined embroideries and the most lavish of embellishments.
“What I like about angels is that they don’t have gender but are still very sensual,” Christian Louboutin says of his inspiration for the collection. “It relates to so many people I like and admire. Human, yet celestial [beings] who make me dream.”
Those heavenly beings include glam-rock icons like Marc Bolan and David Bowie. Inspired by their timeless appeal and boundary-pushing creativity, the eye-catching silhouettes will make you feel like you’re strutting your stuff on a stage in front of thousands of adoring fans. To top things off, all styles come in Louboutin’s broadest range of sizes yet (European 36 to 46) so that everyone can get involved. These are the boots you’ll be stealing from your brothers, girlfriends, pals, husbands, lovers – if you can get your foot in there, they’re yours!
Time to put these boots to the test! To celebrate the new collection, we asked three of TikTok’s most fashionable duos to show us how they’re styling their Louboutins. See how Young Emperors, Josef Michael and Bad Kid, Lexson Millington and Abby McEyerson are wearing them below.
