Christian Louboutin recently celebrated the opening of the brand’s beautiful new boutique at 29 Maiden Lane in San Francisco, with host Sloan Barnett. Barnett was joined by guests such as Jacqueline Sacks, Heather Ive, Juliet de Baubigny, Katie Traina, Carol Bonnie, Dr. Carolyn Chang, Mary Beth Shimmon, Jessica Moment, Sobia Shaikh, Barbara Brown, Jenna Hunt, Gail Glasser, Sonya Molodetskaya, Emily Holt, Nina Stanford, and others eager to celebrate San Francisco’s entrée to Louboutin World.
Proceeds of sales from the evening, continuing through September 21, 2014, benefitted California Pacific Medical Center Foundation.
“I like towns where people take the time to walk in the street, and San Francisco is a beautiful city with beautiful architecture. I was conquered by this location,” said Louboutin, who wan’t able to make it to the event.
One of the wonderful features of the store, which carries items for men as well as women, is a special “tattoo parlor,” a space where customers can add a custom design to a shoe, which will then be embroidered in India.
