The name Christian Louboutin has been synonymous with a generation of elegance, over-the-top glamour, and foot fetishes for over 2 decades. To call him a “footwear designer” would be the greatest understatement, as Louboutin not only designs shoes, he designs a woman. One who is fearless, exciting and willing to induce pain for fashion. The red sole has become recognized and coveted by designers, models, celebrities and everyday glamour-pusses as a symbol of status and elegance and to celebrate 20 years, Louboutin has released a stunning book featuring glimpses of some of his most iconic shoes and those who have worn them. With a 5-piece fold-out cover, a binding of pink faux-leather, an interior pop-up, gilded pages and stunning photography from French artist Philippe Garcia, this book is a piece of art within itself. Picking up Christian Louboutin (Rizzoli; October 2011) will be a must this coming holiday season. I expect to see it adorning many a Manhattan coffee table in no time.
