It would appear that we’re revolving around anniversaries these days. After talking about Victoria Beckham’s the other day (and especially about her all natural birthday cake), it’s Christian Louboutin’s 20th anniversary we’ll get into right now.
No, don’t be alarmed, it’s not the designer’s 20th anniversary, it’s his house’s, his iconic red – soled shoes house. It’s been 20 years since the women of the world were first introduced to Mr Louboutin’s creative shoes flow. And it appears that the magic is nowhere near fading! (it even looks stronger than ever, with more and more lawsuits trying to establish its supremacy in producing shoes with tinted red soles)
Fact is that for years now, Christian Louboutin shoes are sought after by women around the world. Wearing red soled shoes is an epitome of style and femininity, although voice raise stronger with each passing day, pointing towards high heels as an absolute health don’t. Something to which Mr Louboutin himself adheres: “High heels are pleasure with pain. […] If you can’t walk in them, don’t wear them.” he said in an interview with Grazia in which he clearly stated that “… a man in heels is ridiculous”.
So end of the fairy tale that Louboutin’s are comfy! Whatever people, ahem women, tell me I don’t believe it anymore. I just saw Mr. Louboutin on tv declaring himself that his shoes are not made for walking at all. I always had that impression. But his shoes must be seen as “totems of desire”. I’d laugh out loud here…and then Fiona Hering, Fashion Features Director at Dutch Vogue said: “ah, Louboutins are so over. They have become mainstream. Common and vulgar”. Wow!
I can’t see “pain as pleasure….” what a blahblah…..I think men who say stuff like he does are mega misogynists. Reminds me on the days they did t()rture Japanese women in the past…. And of course a man in high heels is ridiculous but so are women who walk in pain in their “totems of desire”….for whom do they do it anyway?
For whom?? He sells 40.000 pairs of shoes per year!!!! I guess a lot of us like and aprove his work.
Besides, not every shoemaker has his work exposed in a MUSEUM,not less.
