Celebrated for his vertiginously high stilettos with their signature lacquer-red soles, Louboutin has achieved cult status with celebrities as well as fashionistas. His eclectic and exotic designs, often incorporating feathers, beads, and sequins, are a constant and dramatic presence on the red carpet and in nightclubs and restaurants the world over. Louboutin's first book, this monograph highlights the extraordinary range of his couture, from his iconic and glamorous creations to his fetishistic pieces, including his collaborations with David Lynch, meant more for the bedroom than the street. New photography captures Louboutin's artistic sensibilities, while an in-depth interview reveals Louboutin's life, travels, and inspirations, presenting a very personal look at the man behind the shoes. A work of art in itself, with a five-piece foldout binding and a pop-up, Christian Louboutin is an enticing and revelatory look at the most important luxury shoe designer of our day. The book is divided into six chapters. The first chapter covers Louboutin's biography, his start as a designer from his work for Chanel and Yves Saint Laurent to his first boutique in 1992, and his early creations and influences illustrated with many never-seen-before photos from his personal archives; chapter two features the Louboutin boutiques around the world showcasing the varied and extravagant interior designs and displays; chapter three is "20 years of design" and highlights his shoe designs from over the years with all-new still-life photography, as well as editorial art; chapter four features the spectacular interiors of Louboutin's homes in Paris and Luxor, Egypt, and behind-the-scenes shots from his studios and workshops; chapter five focuses on his creative collaborations with David Lynch, of a series called "Fetish," of limited-edition shoes by Louboutin and limited-edition photos by Lynch; chapter six is a complete catalogue raisonne of his work, with photos of all 120 shoe designs.

    In this book, Christian Louboutin puts into words what makes women around the world gawk over his shoes. Every pair is a work of art, and in this book he explains his love of his art. The accompanying pictures of the footwear is also a great showcase of his art and the photographers. I look forward to another 20 years of his work!

    Over the years, I have collected "table top" books that I feel reflect my personality and my individual style. I have books with varying topics from the history of Louis Vuitton, to Jonathan Green's Geechee/Gullah Art. The Christian Louboutin book, however is so "girlie" that I had to have a special place to display so that "I" could enjoy more than my guests. It is the perfect book for a wardrobe room or sewing room.

I have books with varying topics from the history of Louis Vuitton, to Jonathan Green's Geechee/Gullah Art. The Christian Louboutin book, however is so "girlie" that I had to have a special place to display so that "I" could enjoy more than my guests. It is the perfect book for a wardrobe room or sewing room. I have not read it in its entirety and it will more than likely take me some time to do so, as it is detailed and picturesque. The "pop-up" is amazing. If you have any reservations about purchasing this book, dismiss them right away and order before it they are all gone. LOVING IT!!

    LOVE. This gem was made in 2011... LITERALLY 11 years ago! Out of all the table books I have so far, this is my very favorite. I love how the cover of the book corresponds to the colors of their shoes. I really love how the pages are accented in a shimmery gold shade, and most importantly, I LOVE the little pop up it has behind the front cover. Worth. Every. Dollar. If I had the option, I would give it 10 🌟
