In the Market Report by Marilyn Kirschner

“All We Need Is LOVE!”

Christian Louboutin "Dandylove" velvet smoking slipper with bold patent 'Love' applique, $945. More info/purchase

With all the ongoing violence and conflict in the world, and so much vitriol and hate being spewed as of late, you could hardly refer to this as ‘The Summer of Love’.  Ironically, this marked the 50th anniversary of ‘The Summer of Love’, a time when a small part of the baby boomer generation converged on San Francisco’s Haight- Ashbury district in an attempt to change the world.

To keep the feeling alive, and because we need love more than ever, I thought I’d do a roundup of special love themed items in the market:



Hands down my favorite, are Christian Louboutin’s Dandylove velvet smoking slippers emblazoned with the word ‘LOVE’. They are available (for both women and men), in black or red velvet appliqued with LOVE in patent leather (pictured above), or in black velvet with crystal-embellished LOVE lettering, $1095. More info/purchase
