Throughout my life I’ve crashed into very fashionably confused people, which is normal, right? I mean, I don’t know a thing about physics and that’s cool too (right?). You may be thinking, “Alana, you’re crazy! Physics and fashion cannot be compared! Fashion is a natural thing!” Well, babies, so is Physics and I barely know its basics thanks to middle and high school. The thing is that, believe it or not, many people find fashion harder to understand than pure sciences, because while they have all these complicated formulas, we have all these terms and fancy designers most people find hard to pronounce and even worst, distinguish.
Confusions happen all the time. Today I’ve decided to write about one that makes my heart ache every single time: Louboutin and Louis Vuitton. Yes, maybe written they seem super different, but go on and pronounce them! If your French is quite raw, you might mistake one for another, and that’s a “No! No!”
It is normal, I mean, let’s not be mean about this. If we know how to tell apart one from another, let’s spread the knowledge! And maybe some day some time, somebody will help us understand more Physics than “everything tends to fall downwards”.
Ok, so what do we need to know? For starters, yes, they’re both French, but Louis Vuitton produces clothing, shoes, accessories and traveling cases, the last ones being their specialty since that’s how they started. The founder, Louis Vuitton, was known to produce the best baggage ever; he even worked for Napoleon the III! Louis Vuitton died in 1892 and his empire is now creatively directed by our dearly loved Marc Jacobs. Christian Louboutin, on the other hand, dedicates exclusively to footwear and still designs for his brand since he’s just about 49. Louis Vuitton signature is their monogram, while Louboutin’s is the red-lacquered sole in every single one of his creations.
Styles? Poles apart!
