Christian Louboutin recreates art masterpieces for his latest campaign

For his s/s 2014 campaign, celebrated designer Christian Louboutin teamed up with artist and photographer Peter Lippmann for a series of images inspired by the floral works of impressionists like Claude Monet or Paul Cézanne. The campaign recreates, among others, Vincent Van Gogh’s Sunflowers and Camille Pissarro’s Pink Peonies, with the shoes and bags of the latest collection ingeniously juxtaposed with the flower compositions. The graphic patterns and multi dimensional textures of Louboutin’s creations seem to have found their perfect home, playfully deceiving the viewer, who can’t distinguish them initially from the flower arrangements of the iconic paintings.

This is not the first time that Louboutin and Lippmann look to the art world for inspiration, since last fall they were motivated by the work of Flemish painter Peter Paul Rubens and in 2011 they had recreated a series of paintings by Georges de La Tour and Marie-Guillemine Benoist. Creatively combining fashion and art and maintaining the spirit of the original artworks, Louboutin’s latest campaign is so fabulous that we can even imagine it hanging in the walls of his numerous admirers!
