Sur les pas de Christian Louboutin

Olivier Garouste

France | 2021 | 52 min
This film opens the doors to the work of a unique creator with a creative process always on the move and with a unique know-how. He reveals himself as a free and passionate alchemist who imagines shoes as real works of art.

Instinctive and spontaneous, Christian Louboutin is a creator with a singular journey. Constantly on the alert, he develops immediately recognizable collections of shoes and accessories to keep pace with the seasons.
From distant destinations where he isolates himself to draw without constraint, away from the factory in Italy where a rigor and meticulous know-how reigns, Christian Louboutin reveals to us, behind the scenes, of a creative process made of exchanges and travels.
Over the months, we follow Christian Louboutin in his daily life and we witness the birth of an exceptional event: the design of the first major exhibition dedicated to him in France which will be held at Palais de la Porte Dorée in Paris starting February 2020.
This documentary is an opportunity for the creator to share his love for shoes, to pay a vibrant tribute to the artists and craftsmen who crossed his path while returning to his sources of inspiration and the enthusiasm aroused by the act of creation for him.
