Christian Louboutin Designs For Cuban Olympians


The French shoe designer has announced that he’s designing the formal outfits for Cuban athletes in Rio 2016 Olympics. The news is a bit unexpected for us. But for Louboutin, it’s been a long time coming, as it was born from a friendship. It began when Louboutin traveled to Cuba to meet his good friend Henri Tai. A former professional handball athlete, Tai had just started, an E-concept store for men that is dedicated to sports and style. That visit proved fruitful; it inspired Louboutin and Tai to team up to design the outfits that will be worn by Cuban Olympians during formal occasions and the closing ceremony.

Louboutin and Tai based their designs on Cuban heritage and the athletes themselves. The tailored jackets, for instance, feature the nation’s flag on the breast pockets, while the five-pointed star is splayed over the back to symbolize good luck.
