Creative mastery : Louboutin’s shoes + Lippman’s photos inspire classic re-inventions for the art and fashion savvy

Shoe guru Christian Louboutin and photographer Peter Lippman have once again put their creative genius together for these stunning works of art.  Each shoe, inspired by an old masterpiece painting, was cast to reflect the character of the model and divert the classic nature of that time period with realism and modernity.

Marie-Guilleme Benoit – Portrait d’une Negresse

“The historic models depicted within the gallery embody the spirit of the Christian Louboutin woman; each portrait acts as a setting for key creations from the upcoming collection twinned with the artist whose individual technique and subject defines their distinct character.”

A beautiful collaboration that has many elements we love : fashion, art, photography and beauty….
