AN INVITATION TO DISCOVER AND EXPERIENCE CHRISTIAN LOUBOUTIN’S RICH UNIVERSE
L’Exhibition[niste] is both the largest ever exhibit dedicated to Christian Louboutin’s multi- referential work and the first to take place in his hometown of Paris, at an institution that has played an important role in inspiring his vocation. Born nearby in the 12th arrondissement, the designer began visiting the Palais de la Porte Dorée during his adolescence. It was on one such visit that he noticed a sign forbidding visitors to wear high heeled shoes, subsequently providing the inspiration for one of his most iconic designs: the Pigalle pump. The exhibition showcases the designer’s vision through a series of 11 chapters dedicated to key inspirations as well as a selection of significant artworks from his personal collection and loans from public collections. A large selection of his finest creations from shoes to sketches are displayed, many of which have never been exhibited before. L’Exhibition[niste] is open to public from 26th February to 26th July, 2020.
