Not ot be outdone (although a bit late, perhaps?) Mnsr. Louboutin has partnered with Jean-Francois Lesage of the famed French embroidery house Lesage to create a very limited shoe inspired by the queen.
Look at the front of the ankle strap - it is Marie with her hair styled with a ship at full sail.
These are striking shoes and they should be with two artists working to create them.
I love the yellow and blue but my heart is lost to the pink, of course.
There will only be 36 pairs of the shoes made, and each pair will come in a specially created box. They will only be made in pink, yellow and blue.
Oh, yes, and they are $6,295.
But is that too much to pay for true art? I think not!
You can see them in person to get the full effect: on February 23rd these little treasures and the maestro behind them will be at the Christian Louboutin South Coast Plaza boutique and on February 26th they'll land in New York City, at the Madison Avenue boutique.
