Expertly crafted, bursting with colour, exuding French glamour – these are some of the ways to describe a Christian Louboutin shoe. In their two decades of existence, these shoes have sashayed to the highest rung of the ladder when it comes to luxury and style. Their famous red soles look down on us from their perch at the top.
Now a gorgeous book has been created to recount the history of these coveted soles and their creator. Christian Louboutin boasts a fold-out cover, pink faux-leather binding and gilded pages – the perfect vessel for dozens of artful photographs by David Lynch and French fine art photographer Philippe Garcia. These images not only feature Louboutin’s works of art, but some of his favourite models as well: his sister Farida, Dita von Teese, Kristin Scott-Thomas and pop singer Mika. It also includes a detailed interview with Louboutin and photographs from his personal archives.
