Last week Christian Louboutin opened his first U.S. men's store in New York's Meatpacking district. It's a 1,500 square foot utopia for the masc/fash set. Later this year he will open men's stores in LA and London but according to WWD, there will not be a Louboutin solely for men in Chicago. The Oak street location that will open this fall will have an entire floor devoted strictly to men's shoes and accessories. If you recall, Christian Louboutin's men's stores have tattoo parlors within them, however the Chicago store will not have one because according to Carla Erice, the U.S. retail Director, "they're just for the men's stores".
