The exhibition of the famous French shoe designer Christian Louboutin will be held in Paris at the Porte Dore Palace in February 2020. The choice of location is not accidental, Louboutin sponsored part of the restoration work of the Port Dore Palace (Palais de la Porte Doree) in Paris, which is a magnificent example of the Art Deco style.
The exhibition will feature more than 200 shoe models that will appear in a mix with other objects that figuratively convey the artist’s inner world - objects of art, interior items, installations.
Louboutin himself says that heels will be honored at the exhibition, but not only. The exhibition will also feature shoes with flat red soles.
Since childhood, the Port Dore Palace itself attracted Louboutin with its bizarre ornaments, high doors, and fancy door handles.
Christian Louboutin began drawing shoe models at the age of 12, and began his career with internships at Folies Bergères and Charles Jourdan. He was Roger Vivier's personal assistant before launching his own brand in 1991.
The exhibition presents a pair of shoes that were produced by the master back in 1987.
