Christian Louboutin created shoes, dedicated to the “Star Wars”
On the occasion of the release of the space blockbuster “Star Wars: The Last Jedi”, Christian Louboutin, in collaboration with Disney companies, created models of shoes inspired by the characters of the new film.
Earlier this year, Lucasfilm invited the famous designer to San Francisco, where he visited the Industrial Light & Magic (ILM) studio, whose specialists are working on the films of the Star Wars saga. There, in the course of meetings with the vice-president and executive creative director for the Star Wars brand Dagh Chien, an innovative idea was born.
“The call from the Disney company with a proposal to cooperate on the Star Wars project was a complete surprise to me. But I like surprises, and this one particularly intrigued me! At first glance, the “Star Wars” universe seems far from mine, but when I saw images of the red planet Kreit, I immediately realized where they were touching, and why the creators of the picture thought about me. Strong ideas and pictures began to come to me immediately, “says Christian Louboutin.
The designer created four models of shoes, reflecting the character of the four heroines of the film:
Ray (Daisy Ridley) was embodied in leather sandals with an ankle strap inspired by the character’s costume. Transparent plastic symbolizes her Jedi abilities and the power she holds in her. The image ends with a blue rhinestoned heel, repeating the color of her lightsaber.
The boats of Vice Admiral Amilin Haldo (Laura Dern) represent a natural extension of her outfit, directly inspired by the cape and strong, restrained and domineering character of the character.
Captain Fazma’s shoes (Gvendolin Kristi) took over the bends of her armor, which also found reflection in the leather belt of silver-mirror straps, emphasizing her hard and authoritarian character.
Rose Tico (Kelly Marie Tran) Christian Louboutin dedicated sandals on a massive heel that surrounds the inner stud, symbolizing a protective shell.
Each model is complemented by a sparkling adornment inspired by the shape of the LED fighter.
For the first time a pair of shoes “The Nomad Shoemaker’s masterpiece” was presented at the world premiere of the movie “Star Wars: The Last Jedi”. In a specially designed for these shoes, a hyper-realistic hologram worked, which according to the designer allowed him to express a vision – a combination of creativity, magic and technology. In this made-to-order red glass showcase, the story of Christian’s avatar was shown – the transformation of torn chiffon boats symbolizing the haute couture tradition into a futuristic spaceship inspired by the Ballerina Ultima model, in which the designer will travel to a distant galaxy.
We will add that collector models with an autograph of the designer and actresses who played heroines, who inspired the creation of shoes, are put on an online auction, which ended on December 20. Part of the proceeds will be directed to the Starlight Children’s Foundation on behalf of the charity Star Wars: Force for Change.
