Better Late Than Never…


So I feel like a bit of a douche because I am SO late on this. I’m supposed to be your “insider” and I totally forgot to write about this! Shame on me.

Anyway, some of you may have heard that the company I work for, Titan Industries, is re-launching the Charles Jourdan brand. We launched the shoes this last show to a pretty good response, though honestly- not what we hoped for. There are some REALLY great shoes but overall it wasn’t what the launch should have been. 
Luckily though, they’ve taken action already and hired a new designer! Now THAT my friends, is inside information ;)

The ads look great though, right!? I love them and think they did a great job! Jourdan was famous for their sexy racy ads and the one below, the Footwear News cover, is so 80’s h-o-t!


These are 2 of my favorite shoes from the collection. They won’t be available in stores until next year but luck me… I got my hands on um! Bwa-ha ha ha!!

    I am so psyched about the relaunch of the Charles Jourdan brand! I just recently went out and purchased a few vintage items cause I thought it was a wrap! Keep it coming!

    Hi! Just back from hols and I see THAT! These shoes are fantastic! I specially like the one from the first ad and you black studded ones. I definitely MUST marry a billionnaire!
    Thanks very much for your blog, which I really like.

    I love the first pair you got (the black ones with the studds). They’re so cool!

    belle- YES! I totally tried out this filter on photoshop called “diffuse glow”. ;) Its like airbrushing! So cool.

    Don’t be jealous- I usually use the bandage tool over any scars or bruises on my legs. Never trust pictures on the internet!

    as was said earlier, I have no idea about the history of his shoes, but DAMN they look fantastic now!!! lucky you get to play in them so early!

  • belle Jul.02.2009, 10:25 pm

    Have you airbrushed your legs in these photos? They look very ‘photo-shopped’ in the first picture. If not then I am hugely jealous!!! && I also love the look of the shoe in the first few pictures, they’re quite different to any shoe I’ve seen before somehow.
    PS – loving your URL that you’ve bought!!

    These shoes are great! I dont know about Charles Jourdan and his shoes from the past but these are sexy and exciting. Thanks for the insider info. Why did they change designers already when the shoes arent even out yet? Seems premature, right? Well I dont know, Im not in the shoe business.
