Christian Louboutin 20 Years Design Museum Retrospective Preview.
April 30th 2012.
Design Museum, Shad Thames, London, SE1 2YD.
London’s Design Museum is the venue of the first UK based Christian Louboutin retrospective. Press and media were invited to a private preview event celebrating this large exhibition with Dita Von Teese in attendance. For twenty years the red soled Louboutin has become synonymous with glamor, craftsmanship and innovation.
The work of the renowned French footwear designer, Christian Louboutin, has continually always evoked an air of theatricality, inspired in part by his love and fascination with show girls and cabaret. This is evident in the design of some of the shoes and the actual display itself. Other inspiration for his work includes architecture, art, fantasy, fairytale, travel and landscape.
The retrospective explores these sources of inspiration through Louboutin’s work and also examines the origin of his iconic red sole.
Design Museum is holding the Christian Louboutin 20 years retrospective from 1st May to 9th July with more information here. More on Christian Louboutin here.
