Christian Louboutin has collaborated with Bella Freud on a capsule collection of knitwear.

The footwear legend has created a series of shoe sketches which the fashion designer plans to incorporate onto knitted dresses and jumpers she has designed.

Christian 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 – who has been friends with Christian for over 20 years – explained she has always admired his sketches and has wanted to use them in her designs for some time.

She told Vogue.com: “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.”

While the collection is set to feature garments in black and green, Bella plans to inject some extra excitement by adding hints of Lurex glitter.

The knitwear – to be made using 100 per cent super-fine merino cashwool – will be available in stores from mid-July.
