It’s one thing to stay in-the-know for grand hotel partnerships or keep up with chic fashion and style collaborations. But it’s a different thing entirely to witness one of the finest luxury hotels in Africa partner up with one of the most refined shoe brands of Paris. On this exquisite crossover episode, the Royal Mansour Marrakech hotel has unveiled the release of two new babouche slippers by Christian Louboutin, designed exclusively to be sold at the hotel’s boutique. Talk about one-of-a-kind (well, two-of-a-kind, in this case).

Created in both a men’s and women’s style, the slippers mirror the interior style of the hotel, inspired by the quintessential wooden lattice, floral patterns, unique bronze motifs, and horseshoe arches. Adding a Louboutin twang to the traditional Marrakechi slipper, The Lady Mansour slipper is embezzled with mosaic gold, and emblazoned with white and taupe designs. The men’s slipper is shaped like a classic loafer, accentuated by black suspenders, inspired by traditional Morrocan men’s sandals. Perfect for both a casual and formal setting, the men's design is topped with not only a Moroccan flag, but also a custom take on the signature Louboutin icon.

The Royal Mansour Marrakech is worth a trip to Morocco in and of itself - owned by the King of Morocco, the hotel has been embellishing the Marrakech Old Town for almost a decade. With 53 individual riads, the hotel recently went through a grand renovation, which expanded the property by almost two acres, as well as added a new fine dining poolside Yanick Alleno restaurant, more of beautiful Morrocan gardens, a 6,500 square foot pool - and that’s just some of the new stuff. But indubitably, the highlight of newest additions is Christian Louboutin’s ultimate souvenir.

Both styles of babouche slippers are now available at the Royal Mansour boutique for $910 for women, and $570 for men. No one else back home will have anything even remotely like it.
