Glamourous and empowering designs with iconic shiny red lacquered soles.
While this statement gives us a gist of Chrisitian Louboutin’s aesthetics, he has decided to surprise us and open the doors to his creative universe this spring and invite us all to step inside for a vivid sensory experience, inspired by the Kinetic Art movement.
Since this spring/summer’19 collection is an ode to Louboutin’s love of optical illusions and art as a source of inspiration, the designs play on distortion, colour and contrasts that have been influenced by Argentina-born artist Julio Le Parc who poineers in both modern op-art and kinetic art. This graphic collection puts forward a mirage where the shoes and accessories are constantly on the move, shifting, changing and coming to life with the wearer’s movement. Playful, lively and inventive, the effect is larger than life, bringing Christian Louboutin’s iconoclastic vision into the real world.
From coquette stilettos to chunky-soled sneakers, bags and accessories, all the iconic silhouettes have been reinterpreted by mixing bold tones and materials to create eye-catching designs. Like classic black and white lines will mesmerise and draw you in, light will glint and glimmer on reflective surfaces, everyone’s favourite dots will pull you down the hole or vivid pops of colours will flash with just a glimpse of the styles. And if you start thinking that you’ve got the whole picture, look again. There are still more surprises in store.
Well, the optical illusion collection is available worldwide starting from February 2019. So, rush to a Christian Louboutin boutique in your city or simply click through their website for a mesmerizing experience full of shoes, bags and accessories.
