Christian Louboutin Gwynita Gomme

Christian Louboutin Gwynitta Gomme, £495

There’s a lot of colourblocking going on in Christian Louboutin’s spring/summer 2014 collection, and much of it revolves around the cobalt and aqua shades found in these ‘Gwynitta Gomme’ sandals. That’s just fine by me – I’ve always thought these two shades work really well together, but if you’re not so sure about them, the inclusion of the white straps over the toe does help to tone the look down a little. Of course, the strappy uppers have a similar effect: on a chunkier shape, two bold colours side-by-side can be a little bit on the loud side, but because these sandals are so delicate, they’re just a whole lot of fun, instead!

As for the rest of the shoe, the cross-cross straps and slender stiletto heel make for a classic strappy sandal, in a style seen on red carpets at every awards show. The shape – and the crossed straps in particular – is something Christian Louboutin does fairly often, so I’m pretty sure you’ll be seeing these shoes again at some point, although they’ll be dressed in a totally different upper next time!
