Christian Louboutin New Campaign: Art + Fashion

The new Christian Louboutin Autumn-Winter 2011-2012 campaign combines art and fashion in a very creative way. The great designer, along with photographer Petter Lipman, has accurately recreated the wonderful works of the Old Masters.

The Artist's Mother - Mcneill Whistler (1871)

Magdalena and Candle – De la Tour (1640)
Portrait of a Negress [sic]. – Benoist (1800)
Portrait of a Young Girl – Corot
La Marquesa de Antin – Nattier (1764)

This campaign demonstrates that contemporary and avant-garde designers are inspired not only by the history of fashion but also by the history of art as well. And, furthermore, that art and fashion often go hand by hand (remember Alexander McQueen’s dress at the VMA’s 2010?)

What do you think about this campaign?
