Swizz Beatz to Launch Louboutin-Inspired Jacket Line

In late 2009, the shoe world got word that DJ/producer/rapper Swizz Beatz is going into a collaboration project with world-famous luxury shoemaker: Christian Louboutin.

Fashion and music fans alike immediately categorized this collab with the likes of Kanye West who made his own Louis Vuitton kicks a reality in mid 2009, and Pharrell’s aspiration to work with haute couture house Lanvin. The buzz got louder when Swizz showed off the Christian Louboutin Studded Louis Sneakers to high-profile events. The $1200 kicks were released as a part of Christian Louboutin’s debut of the brand’s men’s collection for Fall/Winter 2009.

Christian Louboutin’s sneakers can be purchased at Fred Segal Feet.

And guess what: just days ago, Swizz Beatz leaked a preview of his own upcoming fall 2010 solo entré into fashion: a collection of high-end leather jackets. No word yet on whether this will also be a Christian Louboutin collabo, but those studs look similar to the shoes.
