Christian Louboutin for 3.1 Phillip Lim studded satin slippers
Phillip Lim updates the simultaneously geriatric and effeminate men's satin slippers by coating the uppers in round, pointed silver studs. Add a sturdier sole and a slight heel, and they're good enough for out-of-bedroom action.
In pale sage green, they're a delightful contrast of tough and delicate,
and in black, they're dangerously versatile!
It's fascinating how metal studs, in this high a concentration, lose the hard edge they'd normally have in smaller quantities, and instead just add on another layer of shimmer to the satin.
I didn't know these were made by Louboutin. Does this mean the soles are red too?
