An Inside Look At Palais de la Porte Dorée's Christian Louboutin Exhibition

30 years of red bottoms.

Paris museum Palais de la Porte Dorée has unveiled an exhibition dedicated to the life and work of famed shoe designer Christian Louboutin. Christian Louboutin, Exhibition[niste] presents nearly 30 years worth of shoes by the Paris-born craftsman, known for his instantly recognizable red-soled heels. His influences, collaborations and personal history are explored alongside a formidable collection of footwear, including never-before-seen styles.

The exhibition is divided into ten sections ranging from Louboutin’s early years to the shoe-making process to the designer’s fetish-inspired pointe heel. The show concludes with an “Imaginary Museum” of Louboutin’s artistic references and inspirations such as exquisite Wedgwood porcelains, Vivant Denon’s collection of Egyptian objects and surreal works by Joseph Cornell.

Christian Louboutin, Exhibition[niste] is on view at Palais de la Porte Dorée through July 26.
