Feeding his love of art and of the applied arts from a very early age, the designer has always cited the Palais de la Porte Dorée as one of his first influences. So what better place in which to hold the largest-ever exhibition devoted to the designer’s rich universe than the one that started it all? Exploring every facet of Christian’s multi-referential work, Christian Louboutin : L’Exhibition[niste] invites audiences to experience and understand his creative processes.
Showcasing the designer’s vision through a series of 12 chapters, these historic and artistic pieces, many of which come from Christian’s private collection and have never been shown to the public before, are exhibited alongside exclusive collaborations paying tribute to his admiration for the skills of craftsmen.
To celebrate the inauguration of this milestone, a cocktail party was held on Monday 24th of February where guests were given an exclusive preview of the exhibition. Among them were many celebrities and influencers including Dita Von Teese, Janelle Monae, Monica Bellucci, Charlotte Rampling, Karlie Kloss, Clothilde Courau, Juliette Binoche, Arielle Dombasle and Vincent Darré, Rossy de Palma, Blanca Li, Sabyasachi and Imran Qureshi.
