A picture of a grinning Christian Louboutin in a top hat poised over two reclining naked girls doesn’t seem like such a stretch of the imagination. And it isn’t. It’s the promotional photo touting the collaboration between the famed purveyor of red-soled fuck-me heels and famed purveyor of burlesque in Paris, Crazy Horse.
In a release on the cabaret’s website, we learned that Louboutin didn’t just design the shoes (he’s being billed as a “Guest Creator”)–he directed a series of “tableaux, inspired by many eclectic worlds from hip hop to art masterpieces, which constitute a personal look at femininity in all its forms.” What exactly does that mean? Well, both David Lynch and Swizz Beatz composed orignal music for the show.
Andrée Deissenberg, the Managing Director of Crazy Horse Paris Group, said in the release:
“Christian Louboutin and Crazy Horse Paris are symbols of Parisian life whose worlds know no borders; symbols of the world of creativity, wonder and modernity. They share the same sources of inspiration – Women, of course, but also the world around them – and both are exceptionally skilled at producing unique and surprising creations. This is why Christian Louboutin was the natural choice as our first Guest Creator.”
The show will debut March 4 and continue through May 31. We’re hoping for a raunchy/fancy launch party during Paris fashion week to celebrate this collab, which really is a match made in sexy heaven.
