The Glory of Impressionism

Pieter Brueghel

Impressionism - what a wonderful arts movement that glorified nature and manmade in the timeline of history. Now, drawing on the unforgettable style, Christian Louboutin has produced a lookbook worthy of hanging around the house. The iconic red-soled heels are scattered amongst the photographs, being easily deceived as paintings, and rather than being hidden, they complement the spirited floral arrangements.

The photographer Peter Lippmann has captured the shoes perfectly, ensuring that the artistic style of famous Impressionist artists have been honoured. Artists such as Paul C├ęzanne, Henri Fantin-Latour, Vincent Van Gogh and Claude Monet have been paid homage to throughout the lookbook, it's up to you to figure out which images do so. The quaint grandeur of Impressionism has definitely been reinterpreted with effortlessness with this lookbook.
