MATTHEW ZORPAS REPORTS: CHRISTIAN LOUBOUTIN AT THE DESIGN MUSEUM. LONDON
Dear Filep and iDeals,
according to Christian Louboutin, “A shoe has so much more to offer than just to walk.” And indeed, the iconic red-sole shoes of femininity and glamour, illustrated the importance of footwear far beyond expectations in Christian Louboutin’s Exhibition at the Design Museum.
The iconic French shoe designer, who pushed the boundaries of high fashion shoe design, showcased twenty years of designs and inspiration, revealing the artistry and theatricality of his show design.
His magical journey on the red carpet (throughout the exhibition) was forbidding photography. A rule which I find passé. I believe that designs as such, must be shared and set the standards for new young artists. They must be received as achievements and not as copyright threats.
Reproduction regulation could applied to corporations that make money out of reproduction. A picture can only promote, inform, and maybe inspire others to achieve something bigger. We admire artists for the boundaries they break, the culture they create. Who are we to add limitations to creative progress? Here are some super sneaky pictures that I took earlier today from the exhibition. Enjoy!
