Let Louboutin Eat Cake
(NEW YORK) Many designers has taken inspiration from the storied lifestyle of Marie Antoinette, but now 18th century-philes can get even more into the mood. Christian Louboutin (who partnered with David Lynch last year, to many a shoe-fetishist’s glee) has teamed up with renowned embroiderer Jean-Francois Lesage of the House of Lesage to create a pair of Marie Antoinette-inspired shoes. Only 36 pairs exist in the world, and each, marked with a Limited Edition number, will be sold for $6,295. They’ll be available in Christian Louboutin’s Madison Avenue boutique on February 26 and will be sold in a specially created box, along with a book illustrating the collaboration process. Opulent, bien sûr. The only question: How to choose between pink, yellow, and blue?
