THE RED SOLE SHOE CELEBRATES 30 YEARS!
Christian Louboutin celebrates during Paris Fashion Week 30 years since the launch of his remarkable brand. His designs have captured the hearts of fashionistas around the world, brides embraced stepping out from the traditional bridal shoes to wear a pair of the iconic “red sole” heels in their wedding day. A history of designing worth the celebration!
To celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Red Sole and the launch of the Women’s Fall/Winter 2023 collection, Christian Louboutin presented a unique dance show imagined by renowned choreographer Sadeck Berrabah within the Opéra Comique, one of the oldest theatrical musical institutions in France and part of the six official National Theatres.
The choreographer, accompanied by 50 dancers wearing black and white boots Astribottas exclusively made for the show, introduced a new vision of dance called ‘tutting’, an interpretive style involving intricate movements of the body and hands in geometric shapes performed in synchronized harmony.
The stage, entirely covered with reflective material, created an optical illusion of infinite Red soles; the Maison’s most iconic symbol.
After the show, Christian Louboutin unveiled the Fall/Winter 2023 collection within the grand historical ballroom of the Opéra Comique. The collection was displayed on two metallic red towers and two circular alcôves paid tribute to the design of the iconic building.
The FLAMENCABA: a fiery celebration of all the creativity, charisma and exquisite craftsmanship that Andalusia has to offer, developed in collaboration with the inimitable Rossy de Palma, actress and long-time friend of Christian’s. The collection will be available in May 2023.
As ever, giving back is at the heart of this initiative. Christian Louboutin is honored to donate part of the profits from the Flamencaba capsule to Centro Coreografico Maria Page, an organization that aims to promote dance and Spain’s cultural heritage as a model of social and civic commitment for the benefit of children adolescents, genders and vulnerable groups.
