Every now and then I visit a special place where I find reports about special visits into special places, with special people, with tons of inspiring images. And that place is The Selby. And this time, the Selby was right where the legendary Louboutin shoes are made!
Thatâ€™s right, The Selby was in Christian Louboutinâ€™s place: home & atelier! The very place where the red soles magic happens! In Paris, biensur. Although the place looks like itâ€™s being renovated, it could very well be in a perpetual â€˜under constructionâ€™ state. Who knows, whatever triggers the creativity is fine with me! (the story continues right after the jump with more images, click here for the gallery!)
After all, thereâ€™s a tiny piece of interview with Monsieur Louboutin accompanying the pictures, where he said that his favorite place to find inspiration is in his bed. So who cares about the painting on the walls then?
For those of you who happen to live / very well know Paris, thereâ€™s a particular image with Christian Louboutin on the sidewalk, presumably in front of his homeâ€™s building or in the very proximity (wild guess, thereâ€™s no telling if itâ€™s actually so or just around Paris, randomly heading for a cup of coffee and a croissant – wink) of his home & atelier. You may guess the streetâ€™s name from the blue sign on the buildingâ€™s wall. And stalk around, get in the â€˜Louboutin magic zoneâ€™â€¦
