This week Christian Louboutin began selling online for the first time in the brand’s 20-year history – which is bad news for all of those other sites purporting to sell Loubs. (The main authorised site for Christian Louboutin products was previously Net-a-Porter.)

One of my favourite things about the site is its background imagery – hilarious scenes with Christian himself interacting with Barbie dolls! Brilliant. I love it when a designer – or any famous person, really – demonstrates his or her sense of humour.

These pumps – from the brand’s 20th anniversary collection – are on my current lust list. When you look down on them they spell out “love”. I’ve just realised that when you combine that sentence with yesterday’s wedding post, you could come to some very Glenn Close-esque conclusions about me!

This sketch is one of Christian’s of his classic shoes, recreated for the 20th anniversary collection.

I would do a post on my list of “want”s from the site, but it would take hours … have you any on your lust list? Could you ever justify the price?
