In collaboration with the Marrakech Royal Mansour, Louboutin combined mystical, vibrant Moroccan design, and classic Parisian style to create an exclusive pair of slippers.
Rabat – Inspired by the Moroccan traditional handicrafts and architecture, famous French fashion designer Christian Louboutin and Marrakech’s Royal Mansour (RMM) hotel have introduced a unique pair of Moroccan slippers known as “balgha,” or “charbil” for both men and women.
Louboutin and RMM’s slippers for women are called “Lady Mansour.” They take a flat shape with a pointy-toe and a 10 millimeter -long heel, ornamented with mosaic, a mixture of gold, white and dark brown patterns, and a red bottom.
Lady Mansour slippers are inspired by Royal Mansour’s “mashrabiya” architectural elements, characteristic of traditional Arab buildings.
Like “Lady Mansour,” the men’s slippers are made of fine specchio leather. Inspired by traditional Moroccan sandals, they have both a formal and casual touch.
The white slippers are adorned with a gold Moroccan star in reference to the Moroccan flag , Louboutin’s crest, the initials of Royal Mansour “RM” imprinted on top, and a black strap.
The shoes are available exclusively at the Royal Mansour hotel shop. Women’s version costs MAD 8,650 (€800), whereas men’s costs MAD 5,400 (€500).
