Vice Admiral Amilyn Holdo
In a galaxy far, far away, Christian Louboutin dreamed up a capsule collection inspired by the leading ladies in the latest installment of the Star Wars franchise Star Wars: The Last Jedi.
Having previously worked with Disney on shoe lines for Cinderella and Maleficent, Louboutin reached for stars with the four designs dedicated to the film characters Rey, Vice Admiral Amilyn Holdo, Captain Phasma and Rose Tico. He said:
“At first sight, the Star Wars universe and mine seemed far away from one another but when I saw the pictures of the red planet Crait, I instantly understood where it connected and why they had thought of me. Strong ideas and images spontaneously came to my mind.”
Each style is glamorous extension of the character’s costume and every shoe is embellished with a bespoke glimmering jewel inspired by the Tie Fighter. The designs signed by Louboutin as well as the actress portraying the character, will be auctioned until December 20 with a portion of the proceedings benefitting Starlight Children’s Foundation on behalf of Star Wars: Force for Change.
