Famed still life photographer Peter Lippmann has collaborated with Christian Louboutin a number of times on campaigns, exploiting his still life set-up expertise. I found the Flemish-style still lifes with shoes strewn over tables with goblets, grapes and skulls impressive in their execution and mimicry of those types of paintings. It was also interesting to see that the shoe was not purposely made to be the centre of attention in the arrangements of objects. Here, we have another Lippmann x Louboutin collaboration, with a series of portraits inspired by iconic and notably diverse pieces of art, all meant to celebrate different facets of femininity. Each A/W 11-12 Louboutin shoe or accesory worked into the portrait also ties in with the character of the painting as well as the woman depicted.
