Christian Louboutin Opines On Galliano

23 May 2011, 22.49 | Posted in Designer news, boots | No comments »


Christian Louboutin Aioli Spike Booty

While Christian Louboutin was in Dublin promoting his recently opened store, Graziafashion caught up with him and conducted a quick yet thorough interview, hitting on everything from who he chooses to collaborate with to his thoughts on John Galliano’s firing. Here’s what he has to say on Galliano:

I feel sad for him, it must be very hard for John because your name is your identity. When your label is your own name you defend it as a brand but also as yourself. It’s part of who you are and, physically, you are very involved-the two cannot be separated. Being sacked from a (design) house where you’ve been working for a long time is hard but having your name taken away is like ripping off the Band Aid. I would hate to lose my identity like that.

That seems like the sensible reponse–show sympathy without attempting to speculate why Galliano did or said what he did. Find more here.

The above “Ailoi Spike” bootie is part of Louboutin’s Autumn collection. It delivers mid-June and is available for presale, though alas, it’s already sold out.

CassieMetBackstage1 459x540 Cassie Getting Dressed By Rag & Bone For Met Gala

Cassie was one of the guests in attendance at the McQueen “Savage Beauty” opening, held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, last week. We thought you might enjoy these images of her being readied for the red carpet in a crew assembled by Rag & Bone designers, David Neville and Marcus Wainright, whose dress she wore and with whom she attended the event. Here’s what they had to say about her dress:

“Cassie donned a custom rag & bone dress made of cobalt blue washed calf skin, stingray and quilted waxed leather. The hard, angular silhouette and high back neckline was inspired by some of the Elizabethan themes so often referenced by McQueen.”

On the next page, see the dress, plus her spiked-out Louboutins and more.

Here is just one pair of Christian Louboutin shoes included on Khloe Kardashian’s list of favorites, many of which are highlighted in an Elle magazine slideshow featuring her meticulously-ordered shoe closet, plus other items that have become wardrobe staples for her. Here’s what she has to say about her shoe closet:

“I love all of my shoes! It is a must to have them color coordinated, and to be able to see each and every one of them. I know exactly where each one lives and I can tell if one has even been moved! It definitely helps to put one shoe facing front, and the other to the back. It saves space, but it is also nice to be able to see the back-side of the shoe. I am an organization freak!” 

See the closet plus a few more images on the next page.

You see them from blocks away and their appeal creates a visual fascination that has stolen the hearts of many shoe loving women and men.  Needless to say those red soles are like gold! Vigilant about his creation, Christian Louboutin  files suit againts  YSL, who we’re surprised would even produce the shoes :

Christian Louboutin filed the lawsuit Thursday in federal court in Manhattan. He is seeking a court injunction against the sale of the supposed copycat shoes in the U.S. and damages of at least $1 million. “Mr. Louboutin is the first designer to develop the idea of having red soles on women’s shoes,” the lawsuit states.

Christian Louboutin Pigalle Fan Site

ChristianLouboutinPigallePassion Christian Louboutin Pigalle Fan Site

For our many readers who are Christian Louboutin fans, check out Pigallepassions, a site entirely dedicated to worship of the brand’s Pigalle pump. The image with quote above is the one that heads the site. Given this is Louboutin’s signature profile, we were curious about the origins of the name Pigalle. According to Wiki, it’s an area in Paris, Quartier Pigalle, named after the sculptor Jean-Baptiste Pigalle. However, it’s likely that Louboutin was inspired less by the artist and more the neighborhood, which is renowned for its sex shops and prostitute trade. Clever humor that Louboutin has!

On another note, the site in large part documents celebs spotted in the Pigalle. Not surprisingly, Rihanna has the most posts with 38! Not at all scientific, but check after the flip to see who follows her on the list.
