Pray Louboutin My Sole to Keep: Louboutin Pop Up Shop at Selfridges

These gates may not be pearly but they do lead to heaven: shoe heaven that is! To celebrate twenty years of master shoe maker Christian Louboutin’s eponymous company, Selfridges has been hosting a Louboutin pop up shop filled with numerous Louboutin-themed goodies (including Louboutin temporary tattoos – so chic!). I especially love these beautiful, custom made gates, above.At the far end of the pop up is this insane installation, above, featuring Louboutin’s head, which also serves as a window display (in the far window at the corner of Oxford Street and Orchard Street). I think it’s partly a homage to Louboutin’s recent collaboration with the Crazy Horse in Paris: all those legs remind me of can can dancers! As the pop up shop testifies, in twenty years Christian Louboutin has accomplished many fabulous things (one could even say that he, uh, always puts his best foot forward) but my favourite Louboutin item ever has to be his collection for Barbie. The fashion doll and fashion’s favourite shoe maker: now that’s a match made in (shoe) heaven!

The Christian Louboutin pop up shop at Selfridges London runs until 1st April 2012
