Christian Louboutin launches 'Greekaba' collection
Christian Louboutin will launch on Wednesday the 'Greekaba' capsule collection, created in collaboration with Greek artist and illustrator Konstantin Kakanias.
The collection of footwear and handbags was created to celebrate Louboutin’s love of travel with each exclusive piece depicting the designer on his adventures in Athens with fictional character Miss Tependris and her faithful poodle, Pepe.
On one piece, Christian can be seen offering his host, Miss Tependris a pair of custom Christian Louboutin shoes. On another they raise their glasses to toast Louboutin’s arrival.
Other patterns include the new and vivid 'Loubieye' print which reimagines the traditional ‘blue eye’, believed to protect the owner against the evil eye, as well as the new 'Loubi Odyssey' print which depicts Louboutin and Miss Tependris sailing through the Mediterranean Sea on their travels and discovering the Cyclades islands and its wonders.
Beyond prints, the 'Greekaba' handbag is available in a range of sizes including a smaller bucket style and a new Loubiphore silhouette inspired by the tall narrow proportions of Ancient Greek amphoras. As for footwear, styles vary from flats and sandals, to a pair of boots.
The collection is one of many “seasonal cabas” launched annually to celebrate Louboutin’s love of travel. As with every previous cabas, a percentage of the proceeds will be donated to an association.
This year, the contribution will go to ‘Together for Children’ (TFC), a Greek non-profit association comprised of nine member organizations all working to provide immediate and effective support to children, young adults with disabilities and their families in need.
