Christian Louboutin, the French shoe designer known for his signature red-soled stilettos, opens his first men’s-only store in the United States this month in New York’s Chelsea neighborhood. This is his second men’s store, following the opening of his Paris location last fall.

The new store is below the city’s High Line—an elevated line of abandoned railroad tracks transformed into a public park—and is decorated with relics from New York’s Park Avenue Armory and Louboutin’s signature red carpet. It showcases Louboutin’s growing collection of men’s footwear and accessories, including the new fall-winter collection, which comprises edgy designs like a black wingtip shoe with a capped metal toe ($1,195) and a playful pair of leopard-print loafers ($995), as well as classic leather tasseled loafers ($895).

At the back of the boutique, there is a secluded section called the Tattoo Parlor (modeled after the one in his Paris store) where shoppers can customize shoes with embroidered replicas of their own tattoos, sewn by renowned embroiderer Jean-Francois Lesage’s atelier, which has served couture designers from the world’s elite fashion houses for more than a half-century.

No longer known just for his impossibly tall stiletto heels, now the designer has a growing following of men, and plans are in the works to open two more men’s boutiques, one in Chicago and one in Los Angeles, later this year. (www.christianlouboutin.com)
