In Paris, will host an exhibition of unique shoes Christian Louboutin
In February 2020, a huge exhibition dedicated to Christian Louboutin opens in the Paris Palace of Port Dore. The master, known for his red-soled shoes, lent Palais de la Porte Dorée models from his personal archive — including samples that had never been seen before.
The designer, who since the founding of his brand in 1992, created more than 15,000 models of shoes, was exactly what to choose from. In addition to such iconic shoes as Pigalle and Décolleté, the exhibition will feature Christian Louboutin pairs created in collaboration with artists who have always been a source of inspiration for the master. Among them are American director David Lynch, Spanish choreographer Blanca Lee and Pakistani artist Imran Qureshi. The mission of the curator Olivier Gabet was to show the rich universe and the multi-referent nature of the legendary shoemaker. Thus, the exposition will become a kind of collection of references on pop culture, theater, dance, literature, cinema and travel, behind the collections of Christian Louboutin.
“My goal has never been to work in the fashion industry as a whole,” Louboutin once said. "I was only interested in shoes." Living in Paris, he with great pleasure divides his time between houses in the south of France, Portugal and Egypt, where he paints about 600 designs of shoes per year. By the time he cuts the ribbon of the exposition dedicated to his activities, God knows how many models he will create. It is this fruitful work that will be celebrated in his native Paris.
