Christian Louboutin: 20 years “At Our Feet”

 

Christian Louboutin of the Kingdom of the Red Sole celebrates 20 years in business with a a beautiful art book published by Rizolli international with photographs by Philippe Garcia.

In the book we find great photography  that recreates the sensual world of Christian Louboutin  featuring his friends and fans including Mika, Rossy de Palma, Farida Khelfa and more…

Christian Louboutin talks openly about his carreer, his start at Folie Bergere, the time with Charles Jourdan and his love affair with Hollywood.

We learn that it is not the woman-princess that inspires him. It is the woman-survivor. Drop her in the middle of nowhere and she will make it through. For Louboutin the ultimate survivor is the woman that has the guts and courage of a man without forsaking her femininity ( read hair, make up, heels).

Merci, Monsieur Louboutin, we quite like that.

And here’s a  video of behind the scenes from the photo shoot for the book
