Marabou and monograms: Louis Vuitton launches slipper collection
The French luxury brand has launched a line of Home Shoes
Louis Vuitton has given us luggage, yachting inspired watches and high-end fashion favoured by first ladies. It has expanded our minds with art collections and travel books, and raised our pulses with gritty, street-style menswear.
Now, in an effort to make every aspect of our lives as glamorous as possible, the French luxury brand has created a line of slippers. Beautifully crafted, luxurious indoor footwear, perfect for padding around in while in one's pyjamas (Vuitton, naturally).
In a neat array of styles, men have the option to slide their feet into a dense velvet, closed back slipper, covered in the famous Vuitton monogram. Or, if preferred, a lighter, hotel style slipper made from satin, with Louis Vuitton embroidered in florid script across the bridge of the foot.
Women can choose from these as well, or opt for cosy brushed wool that covers the entire foot. If you are seeking something a little more high octane, perhaps a marabou feather mule, quilted on the inside for extra decadence, and finished with a diamonte trimmed logo on the toe?
Fittingly called Home Shoes, the range is designed to be cosy, comfortable, resolutely stylish and perfect for wearing at the end of a long day. Whether first ladies will snap these up too, only time will tell.
