The much-anticipated Christian Louboutin boutique—the first in DC—will open at CityCenterDC on April 7.
The design of the store itself—a little under 2,000 square feet and nestled between Burberry and Christofle on I Street across from Tiffany & Co.—was inspired by Louboutin’s Parisian apartment and designed to feel residential. Just inside the red doorway, floral wallpaper by French artist Alexandre Poulaillon covers the entrance walls. In the first of two “living rooms,” a daytime-inspired lounge space features curved alcoves that mimic the arched windows of the first Louboutin store in Paris and are lined with women’s shoes. The second room, an evening-inspired space, houses the men’s shoes and accessories. Carpet in the designer’s signature red hue is throughout.
When it opens, the boutique will offer men’s and women’s shoes and accessories from Christian Louboutin’s Spring/Summer 2023 collection, in addition to its other offerings.
