Christian Louboutin unveils collection inspired by Julio Le Parc
February 28, 2019: Artist Julio Le Parc is known for his love of optical illusions as a source of inspiration. Luxury accessories designer Christian Louboutin’s Spring Summer 2019 collection is an ode to the eclectic designer's love of optical illusions, inspired by the Kinetic Art movement.
The collection showcases Mr. Louboutin's creativity and joyful sense of optimism. Playing on distortion, colour and contrasts, the graphic collection seems to be constantly on the move, shifting, changing and coming to life with the wearer's movement. Playful and energetic, the effect is larger than life, bringing Mr. Louboutin's iconoclastic vision into the real world.
Mixing bold tones and materials to create eye-catching designs, each piece strives to find the perfect line and is designed to take you by surprise, leading you where you least expect.
From coquette stilettos to chunky-soled sneakers, bags and accessories, iconic silhouettes are reinterpreted for a bold new take. Vertical lines mesmerise and draw you in, light glints and glimmers on reflective surfaces and vivid pops of colours flash as the styles move. Just when you think you've got the whole picture, look again.
