Christian Louboutin has partnered with Jean-Francois Lesage of the famed French embroidery house Lesage to create a very exclusive line of shoes inspired by Marie Antoinette. The shoes -- which are really Shoe Art -- are absolutely amazing. Before they are sold in limited quantities for $6,295 a pair, the shoes are going on tour.
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.
There will only be 36 pairs of the shoes made, and each pair will come in a specially created box. They will be made in pink, yellow and blue. What a naughty sense of irony the shoe designer has -- an extravagant Marie Antoinette shoe created just in time for the great recession. They certainly are fun to look at, aren't they?
