Christian Louboutin Windows at Barneys

Celebrating 20 years of red-soled glamour and the launch of the book, Barneys New York has dedicated its Madison Avenue windows to the designer. If you live in NYC these windows deserve a visit. Dennis Freedman, Barneys’ creative director was interviewed by Fashionetc, about the project and had this to share:

“Christian has an extraordinary imagination. You see that in his work, but also when you’re with him. He’s a very rare person; it goes well beyond the design of his shoes. The idea of working with someone like that is very exciting. We wanted not just to display the shoes, but reinterpret the shoes—to create a sculpture. That intensified and magnified the design of the shoe. So everything begins with his shoe and creative vision and ends with making it ours. It’s been an incredibly exciting experience.”
