Christian Louboutin has just announced the launch of a new category. Here's what you need to know...

Christian Louboutin is expanding his empire, specifically through the launch of a brand new category: men's belts. 

Crafted from the same luxurious leather as his iconic shoes, the belts are all made in Italy and come in a variety of metal finishes. There are four key styles, each of which represents different facets of the house's savoir-faire: the Ricky features a seemingly autographed buckle and two of its variations have the house's iconic red hue; the Eternalou has intertwined metal shapes and is described by the brand as "a technical achievement of its own" thanks to the fact "it recalls impossible pictures in trompe-l'oeil hypnotising the eyes and capturing the attention"; the Louis pays tribute to one of the house's most iconic shoes, the very first pair of sneakers designed by the footwear maestro, and features spike details on the buckle; and the CL is finished with the designer's initials as the belt buckle and is reversible.

The collection will be available to purchase from today in Christian Louboutin stores and online.
