Loulou de La Falaise was a fashion muse and designer of fashion, accessories, and jewelry. The daughter of an Anglo-Irish fashion model and a French marquis, she inspired some of Saint Laurent‘s most iconic designs.
Called “the quintessential Rive Gauche haute bohémienne” by author Judith Thurman, she also inspired the feminine yet bright pink tone of Christian Louboutin‘s new Spinetita ankle boots. You can buy them in pink at Nordstrom and in black at Neiman Marcus.

A velvet ribbon beautifully ties together the caged straps of a plush suede bootie set on a slim stiletto heel.

The 36-year-old English actress styled her pink suede cutout booties with a matching fuchsia cutout gown with flirty ruffle detailing from Aphid London. Would you dare to wear pink shoes with a pink dress?

This vintage-inspired 100mm stiletto ankle boot features delicate matching velvet ribbon laces that droop over dramatic cutouts all along the vamp in a seductive game of shadows.
Like the Circus Nana stiletto boots, it’s a tribute to the circus arts that have long been a source of inspiration for the celebrated French footwear designer.
