- Christian Louboutin is interviewed by the Times UK. Quoteworthy? You decide:
“I prefer shoes that undress to shoes that dress,” he states. “A successful shoe is a shoe that accentuates nudity. The woman remains entirely nude when she wears those shoes. The shoe becomes the privilege of nudity.”
…“There’s the sexy side, and then there is the Parisian side, which is complementary but also the opposite. If you are very chic you might not need an extra drop of chicness, so you go for the sexy side and buy my shoes because they are…” — Louboutin grasps around for the right word — “tarty. We get very smart women coming in and buying a pair to feel a little more sluttish. And then, thank God,” he exclaims, “we also get the hookers coming in the store, who buy my shoes because they are superchic. You see, whatever you have, if you add a drop of the opposite, then it just becomes a little more sexy.”
- Target has announced two new designer collaborations for Spring 2010; including a shoe-line designed by Cynthia Vincent and hats by Eugenia Kim.
Oh, and here’s the money quote, “Volunteers from the Red Cross were on standby in case of accident.”
