After creating magic with his friend and designer Sabyasachi Mukherjee in India, footwear and fashion designer Christian Louboutin has set his sights on Lahore, Pakistan. The French designer has just launched the “Lahore flat” as a tribute to his inspiring trip to Pakistan this year.

With the tagline “Follow in the footsteps of Lahore” the designer launched three stunningly made flats that range from $745 to $795. The flats are closed-toed with a silk scarf that wraps around the ankle with Louboutin’s signature red sole.

 

Though named after the city of Lahore, the silk scarf addition is a tribute to his visit to Venice. The patent black leather and silk material of the flat is printed with Louboutin’s hand-drawn scribbles, “creating a playful juxtaposition” as the company website says. The shoe comes in 3 versions with 2 flaunting Louboutins popular “Loubitag” print.

He was in Pakistan in April to attend an exclusive dinner hosted by the Art Divvy Foundation. Louboutin traveled to Lahore and Islamabad where he watched local artisans at their craft. He also took in the local sights, indulged in Pakistani food and culture and even visited various art and design schools as well. In an interview, the designer praised the nation as being full of inspiration and he said Lahore’s National College of Arts is “the best thing in South Asia.”
