Oh dear Lord – the moment I got the email I couldn’t wait to post this. I was under strict instruction it couldn’t go up until today, Wednesday – you can imagine how desperate I was. This is the UK exclusive of the new imagery from Christian Louboutin’s Autumn Winter 2012 collection…
The press release tells us that:
“The collection stands illuminated at dusk against some of the most celebrated landscapes in the designer’s native Paris. Sitting eerily with the gargoyles at the top of the Notre Dame over looking the sun setting across the vista. Shooting arcs of water into the fountain at the Place de la Concorde, a monument dedicated to the seas, where the shoes weave themselves in amongst naiads holding fish. Decorating the great bridges of the city such as the Pont Des Arts where the shoes entertain strolling couples with an eccentric street art exhibit.”
Oh my Christ, it’s all so Jane Austen’s Northanger Abbey or Daphne du Maurier’s Rebecca… eery yet uber chic yet a little quirky and SO Louboutin!
I’m so in love with these images, shot by photographer Peter Lippmann – one of Christian’s favourite artists.
The shoes come to life which is, I’m sure, what Christian aspires to do season after season – what with his fur clad, studded embellished, super high and sexy heels, each with their own little personality.
Here they are people of the UK… Christian Louboutin’s shoe art!
