Louis Vuitton Cancan Shoe Collection


For Fall/Winter 2009, Marc Jacobs was inspired by all those great French muses of the late ’80s specifically Marie Seznec, Victoire de Castellane, and Inès de la Fressange. The collection sure was a celebration of that decade with all of the glitzy excess, poufs, and ruffles.

Apart from the bags, shoes are always an omnipresent character in every season. They perfectly compliments the collection and adds more depth in every look. This season, these super sexy platform pumps with crazy hourgrass heels were inspirited by the frivolity of the quintessential Parisienne of the 80s. These shoes are called Cancan, named after a lively, high-kicking stage dance originating in 19th-century Parisian music halls and performed by women in long skirts and petticoats. All of the shoes are said to be 4-inches high, but I guess that it excludes the height of the platform. If we include the platform, the shoes are probably 5+ inches high.

So enough of heel height calculations, here are the goods:

    I am not excited about Cancan. Spicy Sandals are more beautiful.

    The cancan ankle pump in satin & lace has a more affordable & i think nicer version on the louis vuitton website. Either click on france or united kingdom country to see all the fall/winter shoes. The shoe is called COQUETTE open toe pump 3.5 inch in satin & lace & is inspired by the shoes seen on the f/w runway. 690 euros! LET ME KNOW WHAT U THINK?
