Christian Louboutin And Dita Von Teese Team Up On A Lingerie Line
Shoe maestro Christian Louboutin and pin-up star Dita Von Teese are combining their talents in a lingerie capsule collection called XXXtian. The seven-piece collection will include a bra, a bodice, and suspenders, decorated with a toile print that Louboutin whipped up years ago, featuring drawings of a dancing Von Teese in a birdcage. Topped off with a touch of lace, there are also teeny red bows throughout, as a nod to the shoemaker’s signature hue. Unfortunately, the collection will only be available in Europe via Glamuse, an online destination for all things lacy and silky.
As for the name of the collection? It comes from Louboutin’s email signature of ‘Xtian’, according to WWD; they added the extra X’s to amp up the sex appeal. The two have been longtime friends and collaborators: Von Teese is often spotted in her red soles both out and about and during her burlesque shows, while Louboutin has made a few custom pairs of ballet slippers for her to don over the years.
