Christian Louboutin, Hardback Book



Perhaps one of the most influential luxury shoe designers of our time, Christian Louboutin s signature high stilettos and lacquer-red soles have become true cultural staples and fashion must-haves. In this new volume the inimitable designer reveals the influences behind his shoes, drawing on his encyclopedic knowledge of objects and artworks.

A journey into nearly thirty years of footwear design and excellence, readers uncover Louboutin s vivid creative universe filled with Amazonian bird feathers, Kachina dolls, crosses, masks, crowns, and the shoes they inspired.

A true look into the master s references, exquisite drawings and sketches of footwear juxtapose against artworks from international museum collections and some of the designer s cherished objects, which Louboutin personally selected in tandem with Olivier Gabet, the director of the Musee des Arts Decoratifs.

Surrealist photographs of Louboutin s dazzling creations by Jean-Vincent Simonet bring electric, sensual style to the pages while a visceral dialogue between the designer and writer Eric Reinhardt runs through this veritable Wunderkammer of a book.

Published on the occasion of the Christian Louboutin Exhibition show at the Palais de la Porte Doree in Paris (February 20 July 28, 2020), this exquisite piece of bookmaking offers a highly personal, vivid glimpse into the designer s life and genius.
