Isn’t it every woman’s dream to own one pair of Christian Louboutin’s red soles?
Going to the Christian Louboutin exhibition at the Design Museum showcasing twenty years of his designs felt like being a child in a toy shop.
Louboutin is mainly known for his elegant (seriously) high heels (definitely not meant for running for the bus). But apart from a collection of the most beautifully designed and crafted shoes this exhibition also revealed a very arty side of his work. A special project in collaboration with the filmmaker David Lynch explored the fetish aspect of shoes. Louboutin created shoes as art objects – most of them impossible to even walk in – and models playfully posed in them for suggestively blurred pictures.
Overall a mouth-watering exhibition. Thanks, Christian. CF
