The Christian Louboutin men's store in Meatpacking was initially slated to open this past spring, but WWD writes that it's now scheduled for August. So you guys, it could be opening in two weeks. Or, it could open in six. Either way, it's better late than never and still lightyears faster than YSL in Soho.
When it does debut, it'll fall right in line with Louboutin's current men's expansion. His Paris store opened last September, and there's another one lined up for Los Angeles this fall and London in November. Details are still sparse on what the Washington Street store will look like, but as we speculated earlier, expect a red carpet and, potentially, a personalized shoe tattoo area.
