We’re filing this under dream fashion collaborations. Famed shoe designer Christian Louboutin has partnered with Lucasfilm and Walt Disney Studios to create custom shoes inspired by Star Wars: The Last Jedi. The four designs are inspired by the film’s heroines and each include a bespoke glimmering jewel, reminiscent of a Tie Fighter. Take a look:
The Rey shoe has an ankle-strap leather sandal inspired by her outfit, with translucent PVC elements that reflect her Force abilities. We love that the heel shines just as bright as her blue lightsaber.
Everyone’s favorite First Order Stormtrooper gets a glam heel inspired by her armor, with silver specchio leather yokes, reflecting her authoritative character.
Since Rose works in maintenance for the Resistance, Christian Louboutin designed a utilitarian sandal that depicts her technical side.
Vice Admiral Amilyn Holdo
Taking direct inspiration from her costume, the Vice Admiral Amilyn Holdo shoe features similar draping elements and the colors of her cape.
While the shoes won’t be available in stores, the commemorative styles—each signed by the designer, as well as the actress who portrays each character the style was created for—will be auctioned on charitybuzz.com/StarWars from December 7-December 20, with a portion of the proceeds benefitting Starlight Children’s Foundation on behalf of Star Wars: Force for Change.
But that’s not all! Christian Louboutin also designed a custom showpiece shoe with the team at Industrial Light and Magic that will be unveiled at the film’s premiere. The shoe takes inspiration from the Star Wars world and Christian Louboutin’s signature style elements to create a unique, galaxy-ready shoe. After the premiere, the showpiece shoe will be added to the auction as well.
We’re so excited to see the shoes at the premiere! Tell us what you think of the collaboration in the comments.
