by Orli Sharaby in Designers, Fashion, Arts & Culture Christian Louboutin, one of the world’s most fetishised shoemakers, has just collaborated on a photo series with David Lynch, one of the world’s most fetishistic filmmakers. The resulting photographs are quite astounding: nothing short of nihilistic, mysogynistic, absolutely stunning pictures that are, in fact, fetish-inducing pieces of art in their own rite. Wallpaper has a great synopsis of the collaboration:
The pair quickly became friends and when Louboutin wanted to push the notion of extreme fetish in his work, by creating shoes and then playing with their creative representation in two-dimensional images, it was clear Lynch would be the man to translate his vision.
Shown originally at Design Art London, the exhibition, which includes Lynch’s photographs of the 5 limited edition shoes alongside the painfully distorted shoes themselves, moves now to Galerie du Passage in Paris.
Amazing! Thanks so much for sharing this Sonya - I am like TOTALLY in love with the red pointy toe pumps with the "too high" heel - something about them looks sexy/dangerous/impossible, don't you think?
