Christian Louboutin Does Buy Now, Wear Now Shoes for Viktor & Rolf

“We’ve known Christian Louboutin for a long time, and he kindly helped us out with the shoes,” said Viktor Horsting, who co-designs Viktor & Rolf with Rolf Snoeren. “They’re such delicate dresses, and as he does such gorgeous heels, we thought a collaboration would fit really well.”

Said frocks, presented today in Paris, were an exercise in up-cycling and featured vintage cocktail and evening attire from various decades. These were taken apart and reinstated as collages, with repairs accentuated with golden thread. The concept was a nod to Japanese pottery technique, Kintsugi, whereby cracks and imperfections are highlighted in gold leaf, transforming the imperfect into a thing of beauty.

The collaboration pumps, which came in red, black and nude with a vintage almond-shaped toe, were a foray into see-now-buy-now. They were made available to purchase straight after the show on the Viktor & Rolf e-tail site.
