Angelina Jolie and Christian Louboutin collaborate on collection
Worn by Angelina on numerous red carpets to promote Maleficent, this winter the bespoke shoes created by Louboutin will go on sale to the public. On Thursday night – the shoe designer who has only recently also expanded into beauty – announced on his Instagram that he had "joined forces" with Jolie. Named 'Malangeli' the shoes feature a ruby red patent and mesh pump inspired by the actress' Disney role.
"It is exciting to work with someone who has such a strong aesthetic and character," Louboutin said. "Getting to know Angelina through a fun collaboration has been one of my greatest pleasures."
The Mangelini sculpted wedge features what Louboutin calls a "tendril of smoke" winding up the heel. The style will be available in two colour combinations – red or black patent leather and can be preordered from October at Louboutin's flagship boutiques.
The profits from sales will go to benefit SOS Children's Villages, which aids orphaned and abandoned children.
