If the wanderlust trend is on your radar this season, Christian Louboutin’s latest Greekaba capsule collection is your ticket to explore it via extraordinary accessories.

Inspired by the designer’s love of travel and far-flung adventures, Greekaba’s aesthetic pays tribute to the rich cultural heritage and craftsmanship of the Mediterranean. The collection features playful illustrations by Christian Louboutin’s friend, artist and illustrator, Konstantin Kakanias, taking you on a modern-day odyssey through Athens and the Cyclades. Offered in vibrant Grecian-inspired palettes, these five pieces are your route to sartorial success for summer and beyond. No passport required.

This year, Christian Louboutin is donating a percentage of proceeds to Together for Children, a Greek non-profit association working to provide support for children and young adults with disabilities. The aim is to help them build positive thinking, inspire creativity, and develop their self-expression—all core values of Christian Louboutin.
