Remember when you were little and it was your birthday and you’d invite all your friends to Chuck E. Cheese and there were ballons and presents and stuff? Well Christian Louboutin sort of did the same thing except instead of celebrating with bad pizza, he celebrated with really pretty shoes in a really pretty department store with really pretty up-and-coming designers.
We’re talking, of course, about the designer’s 20th anniversary display at Bergdorf Goodman. To honor the milestone, he created a capsule collection of sky-high footwear and then invited Parsons alumni to come up with looks inspired by the red-soled shoes. The top five designs are currently on exhibit on the main level of the iconic department store, somewhat hidden in a hot mess of red crepe paper, balloons, artfully placed disco balls and strewn-about stockings. It’s loud and flashy and seemingly out of place among the Hermes scarves, but what else would you expect?
And then I got yelled at for taking too many photos. The things I do for you guys.
The shoes are on display at Bergdorf’s until Feb. 8. Worth seeing if you get a chance!
