In all the corners of the world, the name Christian Louboutin brings to mind a pair of vertiginous high-heels and a bright-red sole. He’s one of the most fascinating designer of our time and he raised the shoe to the status of an absolute icon, laying out a canvas where multiple influences cross one another.
