Bella Freud Collaborates With Christian Louboutin

British knitwear designer Bella Freud has collaborated with Paris-based footwear designer Christian Louboutin to produce a mini-collection of knitwear inspired by Louboutin's signature footwear designs and fetishism. The collection consists of sweaters, dresses and bodies in bright, bold colours which have been constructed from 100% Merino wool. Commenting on the collaboration, Louboutin said:

“I have always loved Bella’s jumpers, so I couldn’t have been happier when she asked me to give her designs which, Bella thought, would look great once knitted.” Bella added: "Christian and I have been friends for 20 years now and he is godfather to my son Jimmy, I have often admired his drawings and I wanted to use some to put on my knitwear.  I love the way a drawing comes to life when it is reinterpreted in another medium. On a knit it you get the sense of someone having actually drawn it, rather than it being a computer generated image."

The designs will hit stores in mid-July and will be available to purchase from Net-a-Porter and Matches.
