15 Sep SportyHenri.com Unveils Sneaker Capsule With Christian Louboutin
Christian Louboutin, the high-fashion footwear design label, is releasing an exclusive capsule collection with SportyHenri.com, the newly launched e-concept store for men devoted to sport and style.
Launched in April, SportyHenri.com offers a melding of shopping and editorial for the sartorially inclined athlete. The site aims to inspire its audience to elevate their sporting life through knowledge and support from “The Gang”, highly regarded experts in the field, including world class athletes such as Tony Parker, who divulge their experiences with equipment, personal practice, and tips on maintaining an active lifestyle.
The collaboration with Christian Louboutin marks the first exclusive capsule created for the site.
The collaboration includes four limited edition styles, each based on sneaker silhouettes, will leverage the Sporty Henri brand’s clean color palette of white, cobalt blue and black, as well as the distinctive logo – a profile inspired by founder and former French professional handball player Henri Tai.
“It’s a real pleasure for me to touch and create some exclusive designs which, I think, represent the values that are dear to Henri: sport mixed with style in a fun and colorful way. I am thrilled to be part of the new adventure of SportyHenri.com, and I wish their team and their clients all the best in a sporty and stylish world,” said Christian Louboutin.
“For me, clothes are an extension of myself, they let me express something about who I am, about my personality, but also they let me explore it. It is this vision that I want to bring to life with SportyHenri.com, and here it takes form through this wonderful capsule collection of trainers by Christian Louboutin, which I feel very privileged to offer our clients exclusively,” Tai said.
This collaboration is the second project for Louboutin and Tai, after having teamed up to support the Cuban National delegation as Official Supplier of the Celebratory Outfit in the recent Olympic Games in Rio.
The capsule collection of Christian Louboutin for SportyHenri.com limited edition trainers will be available from the 14th September online at SportyHenri.com exclusively, and at select Christian Louboutin flagship boutiques including New York, Los Angeles, Hong Kong, Seoul, Dubai, Tokyo and Beijing.
