Top designers have been designing high end versions of stripper shoes for quite some time now, so it really doesn't come as a surprise that Christian Louboutin has decided to come clean by making a few official pairs.
PEEP TOES: As he celebrates 20 years in business, Christian Louboutin is on a roll. The shoe designer’s latest anniversary project is a collaboration with Paris cabaret Crazy Horse, famed for its topless dancers. Louboutin is to create four new tableaux for the venue’s nightly “Désirs” show, originally launched in 2009. His portion of the spectacle will be on show from March 5 to May 31, WWD has learned, but details are still hush-hush. Louboutin has previously created shoes for the Crazy Horse dancers, who also wear designs by Ernest, a local institution specializing in skyscraper heels.[mashshare]
